McCain’s Underperforming?

We went into this evening thinking that the big story would be on the Democratic side of the ledger. And the early signs are looking strong for Barack Obama. But it’s looking like there’s a big story on the Republican side too. Not that John McCain isn’t going to have a big night. But considering that few people give any shot to the remaining candidates Romney and Huckabee, the exit polls suggest an underwhelming showing by McCain. McCain’s folks were dying to have Huckabee stay in and do well. But I suspect at the end of the evening he’ll have done a good deal better than the McCain wanted. And Mitt’s not getting shut out either. Keep watching this.
