McCain wins Florida, Giuliani out

McCain wins Florida, picking up about 36% of the votes.  Giuliani, in third place, picked up 15% of the vote.  His strategy having failed, Giuliani has dropped out of the race and will endorse McCain.  Huckabee is still in the race, but it’s looking more like a two man race between McCain and Romney.  I still don’t trust the hype though – there was a time when Rudy Giuliani was the Republican anointed.  Certainly McCain makes sense to anyone who isn’t part of the Religious Right.  But politics (in general) and Republicans (in particular) isn’t a matter of making sense.

As for the Democrats – Hillary won 50% of the vote in a large state.  Of course, there were no delegates at stake, and the Democratic candidates promised not to campaign (although Hillary did fundraisers, which should count).  Per the tracking polls, Hillary got 50% of the vote, pretty much in the middle of recent polls which put her in the 44-60% range.  Obama’s 31% actually out-performed all but one of the recent polls, which gave him 20-30% of the vote (with one poll giving him 36%).

  1. From McCain’s victory speech in Florida today:

    “I offer my best wishes to Governor Romney and his supporters. You fought hard for your candidate, and the margin that separated us tonight surely isn’t big enough for me to brag about or for you to despair. Governor Huckabee and his supporters, as always, brought to this campaign conviction and passion and something we don’t always have enough of in these contests, good humor and grace. And I want to thank, my dear friend, Rudy Giuliani, who invested his heart and soul in this primary, and who conducted himself with all the qualities of the exceptional American leader he truly is. Thank you, for all you have added to this race, and for being an inspiration to me and millions of Americans.”

    We just got introduced by the next U.S. President John McCain to the next American Vice President, R. Giuliani – as I predicted it on my blog since way before South Carolina primary.

    Have a nice one: “Your Choice 2008” – lmao…
