Now given what happened to the GOP nominating process the last two presidential cycles, there may be an early effort among Christian Right leaders or Constitutional Conservatives generally to unite around a single candidate. And while he has the right credentials Huck doesn't currently have the kind of "It" factor possessed by Ted Cruz, who has the added advantage of a deranged father willing to come right out and say the scary things most Christian Right types merely imply, in public at least. Rick Perry's another competitor for this constituency, if he can avoid the process-servers and convince opinion-leaders he deserves a second chance. Ben Carson's already the favored candidate of the Glenn Beck faction of Con Cons. Bobby Jindal's more conventional and appeals to the same impulse to find a minority champion for White Identity Politics. Rand Paul not only has a strong Iowa base, but also a loyal following among the more consistently anti-government Christian Right folk, including some militant homeschoolers. And Rick Santorum won a lot of the same support in Iowa in 2012 that Huck won in 2008, though you don't get the sense too many people are pining for a second act.So it is not surprising that the highly territorial Evangelical leg of the traditional three legged stool would want one of their own to have a shot at winning. With that said one of the other legs of the three legged stool - The hyper-aggressive The Tea Party - Ayn Rand Wing do not trust Good Ol' Huck. For the Tea Party, the fact that Good ol' Huck has read the New Testament and has not rejected it out right as a bunch of tree-hugging, sandle wearing BS has disqualified him in the past.
It may well be that the leadership of the hard right will let Iowans winnow the field of acceptable candidates and then unite around the most successful survivor. If that's so, Huck's got a better chance than most.
If anything, and assuming that ol' Huck gets some momentum it will be somewhat amusing watching the Third Leg of the stool - The Extremely Devious RINOs unite with their Teahadist antagonists to beat down poor ol' Huck - because there is a natural order to things. The RINO belongs on top. Those other guys need to be satisfied with their station in life.
