I basically agree with David Kuo and Rod Dreher that Huckabee’s victory cannot be dismissed as an evangelical fluke – a la Pat Robertson in 1988. Huckabee’s message and style are just too appealing to evaporate over night.
BUT before we get too deep into meta-analysis, we need to remember that an astounding 60% of the Iowa Republican caucus-goers were evangelicals.
Among non-evangelicals (i.e. the people who will now dominate the Republican contests), Huckabee lost to Romney 33% to 14%. Even Fred Thompson beat him among non-evangelicals.
