Exit polls: race between McCain, Mittens too close to call
The polls are just about to close in Florida, but this isn't close to being over.
The first wave of leaked exit polls are within the margin of error, with John McCain and Mitt Romney running neck and neck. Rudy? A cooked goose. Huck? A flattened squirrel.
Absentees are a third of the total vote, and the National Review is hearing that Romney is ahead among those.
Exit polls have been unreliable in the past, but assuming for a moment these numbers are accurate -- McCain is ahead now, but Romney is leading with those votes left uncounted by the exit polls, which are significant.
I guess what I'm saying is, we don't know any more who is ahead than before you started reading this post. So hang in there.
