Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

Huckabee is surging!

New poll shows big shake-up in GOP race

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) -- Mike Huckabee's dramatic jump in the polls is going nationwide. The former Arkansas governor is in a virtual tie with Republican presidential front-runner Rudy Giuliani in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national poll out Monday.

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, is backed by 24 percent of Republican voters nationally while Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, is at 22 percent.

The two-point difference is well within the survey's sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.

You know he's going to win - he's got the Chuck Norris endorsement, the Tim LaHaye (of the "Left Behind" series) endorsement, AND they're calling him the new Ronald Reagan!

UPDATE: More Surprise: It's been noted that Mr. Huckabee has a temper!

UPDATE: Arianna collects some notable coinage: Huckenfreude, Huckacide, and Huckaplomacy.
