Election day -- UPDATE II

Sort of. Weird caucuses in Nevada. A sure-enough Republican primary in South Carolina.

We'll be checking in.

Mike Huckabee -- helped by robocalling push polls and Confederate flag waving -- is surging in latest S.C.polls.

UPDATE:

NEVADA: Hillary and Romney win.

SOUTH CAROLINA: Cable TV talking heads keep talking about how 59 percent of those in exit polls are evangelicals. They are not talking results, of course. But I think this is a broad hint at a Huckabee victory. Break out the Rebel flag, boys. And give the rod to anybody who doesn't like it.

UPDATE II:

Polls closed in South Carolina. McCain and Huckabee are too close to call.

UPDATE III:

Fred Thompson is gone, though he issues a non-concession concession. I still think it's now McCain-Romney-Huckabee. McCain is the most dangerous for Democrats, I still think. But that funky Huckashtick could be dangerous. It's not quantifiable.

UPDATE IV

The nets aren't calling it, but I will. I don't think, with 80 percent of the vote in, that Huck can close the remaining gap, currently 33-30. I call it for JOHN MCCAIN. This will be a mighty disappointment to Huck forces. They thought they were poised for a Bible-beating, Rebel-flag waving South Carolina breakout.
