RP finishes second

Predictably, the Mormon Mitt Romney romped in Nevada, but Ron Paul came in second:

Rudy Giuliani40972043924706191051152
Duncan Hunter524121728238905454

As I write this, the votes are still coming in for South Carolina, but it looks like the favored Huckabee will only finish second.  This may be shaping up as a race between Romney and McCain.  On the other hand, if straw polls mean much of anything, Paul may still have a good chance. . . .  Either way, he's getting the message of limited government out to more Americans than any candidate in history.  And who'd have guessed he'd be so far ahead of projected contenders Thompson and Giuliani at this stage?
