UPDATE (2049): CNN’s Bill Schneider reports, “The first wave of our entrance polling is showing us what we expected in both fields. Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are in a tight race on the GOP side and Hillary Clinton is holding a narrow edge over Barack Obama and John Edwards on the Democratic side.”
ABC News has it Edwards 33%, Clinton 32%, and Obama 32% and Huckabee 36%,
Romney 23%, Thompson 15%, McCain 12%, and Paul 11% with 15 percent of the precincts in.
UPDATE (2055): Fox News (TV, no link) projects Huckabee the Republican winner “by a wide margin.”
UPDATE (2148): ABC News reports Obama 37%, Edwards and Clinton 30% with 86 percent of precincts in. Not unreasonably, they project Obama as the winner. For the GOP, it’s Huckabee 34%, Romney 25%, Thompson 14%, McCain 13%, and Paul 10% with 66 percent in.
For Ron Paul supporters, the good news is that he came in ahead of Giuliani. But it’s still fifth place.
UPDATE (2213): With 94 percent and 66 percent of the precincts in for the Democrats and Republicans, respectively, the above percentages continue to hold.
UPDATE (2220): At 95 and 78, the only noteworthy change is that McCain and Thompson have swapped places. They’re separated by a mere 36 votes, so we’ll likely not know who finishes in third place until morning.
UPDATE (0540): Final:
