Presidential Watch! Florida Primaries

Hillary Clinton walked away from Florida’s Democratic primary with 50% of the vote while Barack Obama managed 33% and John Edwards trailed with 14%. Dennis Kucinich, who had previously dropped out, still appeared on the ballot and received 1% of the Florida Democratic vote.

For the GOP, John McCain came in first with 36% of Florida’s voters behind him. Mitt Romney managed a respectable 31% while Rudy Giuliani edged out Mike Huckabee for third place with 15% of the vote to Huckabee’s 14%. Ron Paul received 3% of the Florida GOP primary vote, Fred Thompson nabbed 1% and Duncan Hunter (who is doing so poorly that I need to fact check his first name every time) failed to gain a percentage at all.

Is the New York Times‘ really influential or are these results just a coincidence?
