It’s not fair to judge the polls until there’s 90+% of precincts reporting.

Agree. Percent of precincts in NH most likely doesn't equate to percent of vote.

Because it means McCain is the favorite in SC, too, with Thompson and Huckabee splitting votes

Yup. McCain will win SC. The media and two left wing states decided for us. McCain may even take Michigan now.

They called it with only 11% precincts in ...WTF?

What a shame. They've learned nothing from the 2000 and 2004 election, have they? Heh, it's just NH.

Need to support McCain, Think he can beat Obama and definitely Clinton

McCain is wrong on Immigration and Global Warming. As Rush stated, McCain is NOT a conservative. McCain would do great damage to our Republic. He already shows utter contempt for the Constitution. He doesn't want to serve, he lusts for power. His power lust is no different than Hillary's.

“Good. We want Hillary and her 45% ceiling in the general.”

Yes we do! So many people are so blinded by Hillary Hate that they can’t even see how much worse Obama is. Not only is he “rock star” popular, independents love him... Hillary would be a much, much easier fight.

ABC sees no new huge youth vote out for Obama. They say it looks like more seniors came out this year. Hillary’s organization on the ground may well win this for her. I have always worried about her organization that she has been building since 1992.

Hillary will be the candidate.

I know we all hate her so much that we want he eradicated, forthwith, but allowing ourselves to think we’ll be rid of her in the primaries is to weaken us for the real fight in the general election!

They are the KEY precincts. They more than usually call them correct.

Except in Fla where they call an election before the polls close in western Fla.

I suppose the millions Fred has in the bank are “nothing” to you, eh??? Exactly how much does McCain have in the bank???

Keep dreaming... McCain will never win because he doesn’t even have the base of the GOP behind him. We won’t forget the whole Shamnesty debacle... You might as concede to the Democrats if McCain wins the nomination.

Perhaps you should suggest to him that he run as a Democrat. I’ll be he could get his buddy Kennedy to help...

No, actually, it's the women. Oh ... maybe the crying worked.

Monster numbers for Clinton among women 45/36, versus 44/29 Obama for men. And 57% of voters women!

Hillary carries the women and they are 57% of the voters.

I believe any (almost) Republican could beat Hillary, I’m not so sure about Obama. There are people willing to go out of there way to vote on election day for Obama, not so much for Hillary. This worries me.

I love how the polls match the results when the People vote (NOT). Always disregard the polls. The Liberal Media are full of it. Only when the caucus/primary/election actually takes place do the results matter.

I’ve been a Rudy fan from the beginning. But I want Mitt to do well and would be happy with him. (Wish Fred had done better). But I could vote for either Rudy or Mitt.

I’d vote for McCain, but listlessly.

Huckabee...I might have to stay home.
But I don’t think it’ll come to that.

Hey, even if McCain wins tonight, I'd like to know the delegate count. I think Romney still has a chance. Thompson needs to start making SOME noise in South Carolina, since he probably is ignoring Michigan.

McCain is not going to be coronated, neither is Huck or Mitt.

The fight goes on.

I just hope the Dems fight on, too.

Yah, and McCain beat Bush in 2000 in NH by 18% points...Big deal; this is still not over by a long shot! I still think there’s no way he’ll be the nominee (at least I hope not!).

I'm even more disgusted with the media than ever before, which is saying much. They did nothing but play up the Hillary bit yesterday, reported all this polling about an Obama blow-out and how close McCain and Romney were, and if I were a conspiracy nut I would think there was a coordinated effort to push Hillary up just so there would be "news". Manufactured news, but news.

The same thing happened last year in MD when Steele was supposedly so close to Cardin.

That's it for me watching this stuff. I don't mind being a political junkie, but I'm through with this dishonesty in reporting. I think I'll kick the habit and just drop out.

It is a depressing primary season. If either of those two are nominated, our will honor our Founders and NOT vote. These two men would shred what remains of our Constitution and push us into a socialist Hell.

Yes he was and I don't believe, once the independents aren't included in the mix, that he will win the vote of the base. Can't wait to hear how the numbers played out on his win.

Romney’s down. Iowa gone, New Hampshire, gone - last of the major candidates in national polls.

Time for a reality check. Romney will be coming out of NH with 20-21 total delegates, Huck with maybe 15, McCain with 9.

Romney can keep this up, winning high in each state, and as long as no one else can be more than one-day wonders in some particular spot, he'll maintain the real lead.

Was that the Thompson plan all along? Give conservatives an alternative to Romney, so Romney wouldn’t become the inevitable candidate and McCain would have time to get off the floor and stage a comeback?

It would explain why Thompson didn’t compete much for anything before South Carolina, and why he ignored NH, and why he jumped into Iowa to try to take the shine off of Huckabee so he wouldn’t become too powerful before New Hampshire.

I think Thompson wants to be president, but you sure could look at his campaign and think he’s doing it for McCain.

He won’t even attack McCain for McCain/Feingold.
