<Note that these are exit polls, but those have been pretty good this year. However, if any of these are significiantly wrong, the whole picture can change rather easily.>
Kerry. This is, obviously, a commanding victory. Keep in mind that AZ and Missouri have the most delegates of any of these states.
Edwards. Taking SC was expected, but taking OK really keeps him in the race. If he sticks it out, he needs to do better in the debates. Period. He has more latent talent than Kerry in speechifying, but he's missed key oppurtunities in the debates, including the embarassing DOMA moment.
Dean: From frontrunner to maybe mustering 15% in two states. Ouch. However, if he's been fiscally conservative, he should have the money to stick it out a while longer. Getting new money, though, is going to be problematic.
Not so much::
Clark: Oklahoma was his stronghold. If he comes in third, big ouch. Edwards has the southern vote, Kerry has the military vote, and Dean has the outsider vote. Where does that leave Clark?
Lieberman: Sir, I have the utmost respect for you. With that being said.. please stop embarassing yourself.
Sharpton/Kucinich: I don't have much respect for either of you; however, it'd also be nice if you stopped embarassing yourself.
Anyway, it looks like Kerry and Edwards are the only two left really standing, and Edwards is in huge trouble. He needs to raise some money, fast. He's progressed extremely well in the past five months or so, but there's still a long way to go.
