Update 9:32pm ET: 38% of the precincts are reporting with Hillary still in the lead at 39.27%, with Obama gaining with 36.26%. Huckabee has slipped a bit, Paul is almost tied with Giuliani at just over 8%.
Enough for me, I'm done with the meaningless horcerace crap. A new post will cover the final results. But I think Obama will take it by a nose, and Paul will narrowly take fourth over Giuliani. Fred did awful.
Update 9:02pm ET: 27% of precincts reporting via Politico, Hillary at 40%, Obama at 34%.
Huckabee at 12.03%, Giuliani at 9.12%, and Paul at 8.44%. McCain is solidly in first and Romney solidly in second.
Update 8:42pm ET: 16% of precincts reporting, Hillary is still in the lead, Giuliani ahead of Paul by a nose.
Update 8:32pm ET: Everybody's projecting McCain as the winner. Surprise!
Looks like McCain has got this one in the bag, while it's too close to call for Hillary and Obama, CNN however has predicted Edwards to take third. With 11% of precincts reporting as of now, McCain could still lose to Romney, but it's highly unlikely as the exit polls don't indicate so. Not only that, but McCain's been polling above Romney the last week or so.
Here's where it gets relatively reliable, exit polls.
GOP: McCain is in the lead with about 35%, Romney with about 30%, Huckabee with about 12%, and Ron Paul with around 10%. Giuliani and Thompson barely registered. Strange, I always thought Giuliani would fare much better in NH.
Dems: Clinton appears to be in the lead with close to 40% and Obama around 36%. Edwards with about 16%.
