GOP Exits

We’re seeing the first GOP exits polls from states around the country. And John McCain isn’t doing all that well. To be clear, he’s still dominating. And with the GOP’s overwhelmingly winner-take-all rules, he’ll win lots and lots of delegates. But Mitt Romney is doing respectably in a lot of states. And Mike Huckabee appears to be in the lead in a four of them. Meanwhile, it’s a tight race in Arizona between McCain and Romney, with the home state senator leading by only 5 points.

Just to be clear. The big headlines here look the same. McCain’s winning big states across the country. Romney’s only winning in four states. But these results do show that McCain’s winning this without really closing the deal. At least not yet.
