Final Results

With all but four precincts in, here are the Republicans:

Mitt Romney: 51%
Ron Paul: 14%
John McCain: 13%
Mike Huckabee: 8%
Fred Thompson: 8%
Rudy Giuliani: 4%
Duncan Hunter: 2%

Can you feel the Paul-mentum? Because I can. With 97.67% in , here are the Dems:

Hillary Clinton: 50.68%
Barack Obama: 45.22%
John Edwards: 3.75%
Uncommitted: 0.29%
Dennis Kucinich: 0.05%
Mike Gravel: 0%

It’s worth noting that Obama actually beat Clinton in national delegates gained in Nevada, getting 13 delegates to her 12, due to his appeal outside of Las Vegas. Of course, whatever momentum comes from this (and given that the Republican race in South Carolina is overshadowing it, I don’t think much will) will be based on vote percentages, not delegates, but it’s comforting that was actually a victory in the long-run. Also, it’s becoming clear that, Bill Clinton flip-outs aside, the Clinton campaign really won dirty, with at least 200 separate voter suppression tactics counted. And that isn’t even counting her Muslim-baiting robocalls. I wish I could say I was surprised.

Kudos to John Edwards for not dropping out – and I’m not just saying that because I want him pulling blue-collar white voters away from Hillary in South Carolina. Okay, I am just saying it for that reason, but still, thanks, John. Way to take a total collapse well. Meanwhile, Duncan Hunter is dropping out, which I find hard to believe. Could it really be that a coalition including Bob Smith, Chuck Yeager, and Ann Coulter isn’t enough to win the Republican nomination? Say it ain’t so.
