Fox News Exit Poll – Romney's Looking to Lead
Of the Independents, McCain got 34% and Romney 23%
Conservatives, Romney 38%, McCain 23%, Huckabee 19%
Again, these are just exit polls and don’t necessarily reflect the electorate. However, what these do show is that Mitt Romney has an advantage right now, simply due to the fact that it looks like he has been getting a decent portion of the independent vote.
What is interesting is the fact that amongst the conservatives polled, Huckabee only received 19% of the vote.
While he didn’t really campaign in the state that much, the media made it seem as if there could be a huge evangelical uprise in the state and switch their support from Romney to Huckabee.
This could be foreshadowing of what is yet to come for South Carolina, where everyone is dubbing Huckabee the victor already. However, I think that Huckabee is going to have a much tougher time in South Carolina than anyone thinks.
