Snow and some human error in setting up voting machines could make the results in today’s South Carolina Republican Primary a little more dramatic than expected. If the race is close then we’ll have to wait on the paper ballots to be counted.
WYFF a SC TV station has the live results posted, and with 75% of the votes counted John McCain has a 6% lead over Mike Huckabee. UPDATE – McCain called as Winner
If results since 1980 hold true then the winner of South Carolina will go onto take the election. It looks like McCain will take SC, but it’s hard to say if the trend will hold true. With Thompson likely to drop out of the race this weekend, many of his voters will probably turn to the more conservative Huckabee which might cancel out any momentum that McCain could take out of the SC.
