Merely OK

Three of four Republicans in Oklahoma call themselves evangelical. But they're not gaga for Huck.

Mark Silk observes:

Huckabee doesn't do as well among Oklahoma evangelicals as he's done in other big evangelical states–just 36 percent compared to 31 percent for McCain and 26 percent for Romney. Oklahoma's just across the border from Arkansas. Are Okies too familiar with Huck?

The numbers I'm looking at are 39/29/25, so slightly better news for Huckabee. But his point stands. In states where 60% or more of Republicans call themselves evangelical, Huckabee has been in the 40s at least.
