Mike Huckabee Wants You to Do This

The evangelical vote is still up for grabs in the current presidential election.

No one knows this better than former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee who ran for president in 2008 and lost.

He had a pretty good showing back then, surprising everyone when he won the Iowa caucuses. Comparisons of Huckabee being David who sleighed Goliath started popping up as people across the country gave him a second glance.

The former Arkansas governor would have had a much better showing nationwide if evangelicals would have shown up to the polls and voted. But many Christians, unhappy with their options, stayed home.

Huckabee is trying again. Due to his low poll numbers, he participated in the undercard debate in Charleston Thursday.

CBN's Washington Bureau Chief cut through the madness in the "spin room" to ask him about evangelicals this time around.

"One of the important things is that they need to show up and vote. So many of them didn't in the last cycle in 2012 and that's probably one of the factors that cost us the election," Huckabee said.

"But evangelicals don't always vote predictably," he continued. "And I think that's one thing I know very well from having been in politics now and running for office for 25-26 years that I think some people still think it's like a block vote and it just isn't."
