I think while polls are open it is just not right to leak the exits. What you know, you know and you don’t need to print everything you know at the moment you know it. Besides, John is right— they can and have been wrong. All that said if Romney were to win nicely, SC becomes the knock out drag out, key state Thompson hoped it would be. Can McCain come back if he loses tonight? Sure and his leadership/foreign policy message plays better there perhaps than Michigan. The big loser tonight may be Huckabee. Other than Iowa and other than with the religious right where has he shown strength? Romney will get a bit of a bump but perhaps not enough to step over Thompson and McCain. Anyone of them can win. And who must be delighted by the “not so fast do we want the race to be over” mentality once again displayed by GOP voters? Rudy of course. Hey, he’s made Romney a believer in the long term delegate strategy.
UPDATE: Reports are circulating that Romney will head for Nevada on Thursday, perhaps trying to cement a win in a state he thinks he can win and downplay the importance of SC where he may have difficulty getting to first. Spokesman Kevin Madden says officially no decision has been made yet. I imagine they will assess the results tonight, do a quick SC poll( but the impact of Michigan won’t of course be known for a day or two) and make their choices. Everyone is now playing the odds ( no Vegas pun intended).
