Well the polls did really well in the Republican primary, but were totally off base for the Democrats (so far). John McCain won really easily on the Republican side over Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, but Hillary Clinton is doing quite well leading the Democratic primary in New Hampshire for now over Barack Obama and John Edwards. Edwards will finish third with Obama and Clinton fighting for first and second.
This is so despite trailing in the polls by 10 to 12 points yesterday in the final polls of the primary. If she wins or even finishes a close second, it will definitely be a big launch for her into the rest of the primaries.
It was amazing to me that before the results started coming in today how the pundits on the cable news networks were calling for major changes for Hilary, some even coming to the point that if Barack Obama wins by too much, the Democratic primary was over.
Another interesting sign is that Ron Paul does quite well in fundraising and publicity on the Internet, but when it comes to votes, he is a distant fourth. If he has all this popularity and it was sincere, he should be doing a lot better.
This is going to be a marathon and it could be that when the primaries are done and we head to the conventions, that there will not be a clear-cut nominee for the nomination of President from either of the two major parties.
It is going to be fun.
