What the national polls say:

Mike Huckabee: 19 percent 

Ron Paul: 4 percent

What the fourth-quarter fundraising numbers say:

Mike Huckabee: $950,000

Ron Paul:  $11,390,000

Yes, fundraising typically lags popularity, and Huckabee's ascent has been recent and steep. Still, numbers this wildly out of whack are yet another indication of what an astonishingly weird race this continues to be.
