Romney/McCain Win, Huck in Trouble, Hunter Drops Out, Thompson Next?

Wow, what a day. First, Romney cleans up in Nevada, with more than 51% of the vote, then McCain essentially knocks out Huckabee out of the race with a win in South Carolina. It still remains to be seen whether or not Fred Thompson will call it quits, as Duncan Hunter did earlier, but today's results show just how important Florida is going to be on January 29th. Both McCain and Romney have momentum heading into the Sunshine State, but it remains to be seen just how much that will help as Giuliani has done nothing but campaign there for the past few weeks.

Right now, the delegate count among the top five candidates stands as follows:

Romney: 72
McCain: 38
Huckabee: 29
Thompson: 8
Giuliani: 2

As I've mentioned before, a win in Florida means a grand total of 57 delegates and a huge amount of momentum heading into Super Tuesday on February 5th.
