Romney was a clear, huge winner in Nevada today, with 52% of the vote, helped by one of the largest populations of Mormons in any state outside of Utah.
A big surprise is what looks like a second place finish for Ron Paul,with 14% ahead of John McCain, with 13%, and with Huckabee and Thompson each with 8% and Giuliani with 4%.
52% of Republican voters were male.
Hillary Clinton defeated Obama in Nevada, in a close race, pulling 51% to Obama's 45%. Among Nevada Democratic voters, 59% were women, and the 68% of them were over 45-- both demographics that favored Clinton.
John Edwards pulled 4% of the vote.
While Clinton grabbed the psychological "win" she actually won one less electoral vote. Obama got 13 to Hillary's 12.
John McCain won the GOP race in South Carolina with 33%, followed by Huckabee with 30%, Thompson 16%, Romney out of the "medals" in 4th place, with 15%, Paul with 4%, Giuliani with 2%.
McCain got 19 delegates (exceeding the 18 Romney won in NV,) Huckabee got 5 and the rest got none.
This race is still wide open and looking more and more like it could end up decided at the convention.
