First In The Nation

Today is the New Hampshire Primary. It looks like Democrat Barack Obama will win his primary comfortably while John McCain seems to be poised for a victory on the GOP side. It will be fascinating to see all the results. In addition to who wins, I will be interested in how well Huckabee and Thompson do. Huckabee has been polling at around 10% in New Hampshire. If he should get 15% or more, then it might reveal a strength that the polls don't measure. If Huckabee does surprise, then it might indicate future strength in the upcoming contests. As far as Thompson goes, he is the last hope for the real hardcore movement conservatives. While Romney seems to be the conservative establishment pick now, Thompson has the right wing people movement behind him. His performance today will be an indication on the strength or weakness of this ideology. Needless to say, I can't wait to get home tonight to watch the results roll in!
