huckabee.jpgA “10” rating from God-o-Meter has its advantages. Consider yesterday’s Des Moines Register poll showing that Mike Huckabee has vaulted ahead of the Republican pack.
The Register explains that Romney, the former Iowa GOP frontrunner, saw a 5-point drop in support since October due largely to losing evangelical support to Huckabee:

The Register’s new scientific poll shows Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, leading Romney 38 percent to 22 percent among those who consider themselves born-again Christians. In October, Romney edged Huckabee 23 percent to 18 percent among people in that group, which accounts for one-half of all likely caucus participants.
Similarly, Huckabee holds a 2-to-1 lead over Romney among those who say it is more important for a presidential candidate to be socially conservative than fiscally conservative.

Still wondering why Romney’s “Mormon speech” is coming this week?
