Big Primary Day

Voting has begun in both Nevada, where Mitt Romney is the front runner, and South Carolina, where John McCain and Mike Huckabee are battling it out.

Polls in Nevada have been quite erratic as Mitt Romney has gone from 15 points in one, to 28 points in another, to 34 point in yet another, all over the span of one week. John McCain seems to be solidly in second, while Huckabee, Giuliani, and Thompson could all potentially snatch 3rd.

The three most recent polls for SC on RealClearPolitics shows McCain and Huckabee tied, McCain up by one, and Huckabee up by seven.

Another battle is for third place between Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson. Most polls show Romney beating the former senator, but not by a very wide margin.

And of course, as has been the case as of late, Rudy Giuliani and Ron Paul are "dueling" for 5th and 6th place. Rudy has put all of his eggs in one very crucial basket in Florida, and it remains to be seen if his incredibly risky strategy of ignoring all of the early primaries will pay off.
