Once a commanding figure in the Republican party, the so-called Elephant in the Room had problems attracting support for his presidential campaign since day one. He found himself in a lot of arguments — against Rand Paul in the very beginning and against Marco Rubio at the very end. It gave him a sense of a bully, a bit of a corrupt one at that. He attacked Marco Rubio blatantly, and in short it caused both of them lost a lot of support because of it.
They couldn’t really keep the attention of either of their political platforms. Democrats were too busy “Feeling the Bern” or standing with “Her” to notice the small-state governor begging for attention in the corner. Huckabee, on the other hand, fell quickly. He was proud to be in the top three when there was only five candidates on the Republican side. Then, after the clown car of the GOP filled quickly, he was quickly sent down to the kiddie table debates with the candidates that don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell. Rand Paul, when isolated to kiddie table land, decided to skip the debate entirely. Huckabee, on the other hand, just made a fool out of himself.
Congratulations, Iowa. Your caucus continues to leave a trend. You picked Huckabee in 2008, you picked Santorum in 2012, and you picked Cruz in 2016. All three are just sad, pathetic excuses of candidates. Ones that have no real political foundation because they have a problem with mixing religion and politics in a secular nation. It’s a good thing the Iowa Caucus really doesn’t matter at all: because you didn’t pick a commander in chief. You chose, for the third year in a row, a pastor in chief.
