CNN hasn't called Massachusetts for Clinton yet, but the AP has.

I think that is a huge win for Clinton.

Exactly. Huckabee would cause McCain to lose all the independents that would otherwise give him a good chance at victory.

Remember though, the conservative vote carried the last two elections. That's enticing.

Huckabee is really performing over his head. I'm shocked.

Obama is having a very respectable evening as well.

it strikes me that poor white democrats aren't voting for Obama. is it due to race? it also strikes me that such voters would probably be the most likely to be swayed by a McCain candidacy.

Nope, it was very informal actually. We signed up to register on a sheet of paper, were given a little 2 inch piece of paper, checked next to the candidate, then dropped it in a cardboard box. (And, this was in Minneapolis, mind you.)

We inserted our ballot into a machine which registered the voter count (amount of ballots)

Actually, I think it's been a bit underwhelming for him so far. Losing Massachusetts, when he had all those big endorsements, is a bit of a setback.

However, one thing that is striking to me is that when he wins, like in Alabama and Georgia, he wins by a large margin, and when he loses, a lot of times it is not by much.

Current tally:

Clinton--Oklahoma, Tennessee*, Arkansas, New York*, New Jersey*, Massachusetts*
Obama--Illinois*, Georgia*, Delaware, Alabama

McCain--Delaware, New Jersey**, Connecticut, Illinois**, New York**
Romney--Massachusetts, Utah**
Huckabee--West Virginia, Arkansas


(* = rather large delegate count + significant-looking victory margin)

(** = winner-take-all state with rather large delegate count, OR significant-looking victory margin in non-winner-take-all state with lots of delegates)

here's some analysis from just about the rightest of the right wingers out there, Michelle Malkin:

[q]Bottom line so far on the GOP side: McCain was supposed to win Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee (see realclearpolitics.com). Huckabee may win all three (plus Arkansas and West Virginia.) A week ago, McCain was also strongly favored to win Missouri, Arizona, and California. It is now unclear whether he will win any of those three. The night’s a long way from over, but I’ve got to think McCain is not very happy right now…9:35pm Eastern. Rove says McCain should be happy…Kristol notes the paradox: McCain’s winning, but he has structural weaknesses…Romney has to win somewhere other than Mass…Waiting for the West…

McCain may prevail tonight, but wake up damaged goods in the morning.

[/q]



boy, they really don't like McCain, do they?

SBS is currently showing Huckabee making some speech. Holy shit, he's just talking a complete load of gibberish. How the fuck is this guy a mainstream politician in the US?

Everyone in line today (Mobile, Al) was talking about Obama.
Seriously, as far as I could hear people talking in front of me Obama was the conversation.
That in itself was remarkable, since I don't recall that much conversation between people waiting to vote, in my life.

He scares me almost as much as Bush. Maybe scare isn't the right word.. it's more dread that he might ...
I can't even think about it.
