First Results from Super Tuesday: West Virginia and Georgia (Updated)

Filed under: 2008 Election — DRJ @ 4:40 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

ABC reports that Republican caucuses in West Virginia handed a victory to Mike Huckabee after John McCain instructed his delegates to vote for Huckabee on the second ballot. This is a blow to Mitt Romney, who won on the first ballot and was heavily favored to win in West Virginia.

ABC also reports that, according to exit polls, Obama has overwhelmingly won the Georgia primary 86-13 over Hillary Clinton. There was a record turnout of African-American voters.

UPDATE: Jim Geraghty at NRO’s Campaign Spot summarizes the current GOP exit polls:

Arizona: McCain 36 percent, Romney 36 percent, Huckabee 7 percent.
California: McCain 40 percent, Romney 35 percent, Huckabee 12 percent.
Missouri: McCain 33 percent, Romney 30 percent, Huckabee 27 percent.
Georgia: Huckabee 32 percent, Romney 31 percent, McCain 30 percent.
Tennessee: Huckabee 33 percent, McCain 30, Romney 27 percent.
Illinois: McCain 46, Romney 30, Huckabee 16.
New York, New Jersey – they’re McCain by a lot.
Massachusetts – Romney.”

  6. I am not turning on my TV tonight. I cannot bear to watch. I had this sick feeling in my gut today that Huckabee was in some kind of evil collusion with McCain to pull votes from Romney, and then I stop by here, and it seems that they are acting in cahoots. Fuckers.

  7. I guess Romney shouldn’t have run those slimy negative ads against his opponents, eh?

  8. Yeah, because his opponents are just pure as the driven snow…
