A huge win tonight on the Democratic side for Senator Clinton who stomped her nearest rival Barack Obama by about 20 percentage points. The Obama people are quick to point out that there is no delegates attached to Clinton's victory. Earlier this year the DNC punished the State for moving up it's primary by taking away Florida's delegates.
However, the reason Clinton's victory is significant, it shows that Hillary is the most electable candidate and has the strongest base of support. Over 800,000 people came out and made their voices heard by voting for Senator Clinton through grassroots campaigning. Senator Clinton took in more votes than any Republican candidate, even though the GOP candidates spent months of campaigning in Florida. Make no mistake about it, Hillary Clinton will not only be the Democratic nominee but the next President of the United States.
On the Republican side John McCain pulled out a close win against Governor Mitt Romney wining with about 36% of the vote. This makes Senator McCain the clear front runner to be his party's nominee in November. There still is a small chance that Romney can pull out some States from Conservative voters that hate the idea of a McCain presidency. With ultra Conservative candidate Mike Hucabee vowing tonight to stay in this race, Romney's chances are very slim.
