I wouldn't be surprised to find that some of the Republican candidates regard themselves as compelled to say something along those lines in order to appeal to these prospective base. So while some, such as Huckabee, clearly are creationists, I'm not so sure about others, such as Paul.
Admittedly I'm cynical from my involvement in this issue for many years, but it seemed to me that he was reciting the "I don't know how God went about creation" line without showing much conviction in it.
And I don't find appealing to that base, with its leanings towards theocracy and against freedom of conscious, except their own, any more acceptable in a candidate than being anti-science.
