Not Feeling the Huckmentum


A lot of readers have pointed out that the upcountry areas where Huckabee should be strong either hadn’t reported yet or were just starting to. But according to this page, more than a third of Greenville County has now reported in and it’s tied 27%-27% between Huck and McCain. If Huckabee isn’t even winning there, that can’t be a good sign.

Late Update: Had just posted this when I saw John King talking about this on CNN. And he pointed a key issue in Greenville — the normally somnolent Fred Thompson has 18% in Greenville. So it seems Thompson may have provided a critical assist to McCain by splitting the evangelical vote and keeping Huck’s number down to 30% or less.
