Prediction Time: South Carolina Democratic Primary

A little late, but better late than never I suppose.

The polls close tonight at 7pm ET in South Carolina and soon after we should know who takes the state.

First, a short video report from ABC News:

The polls are showing Obama taking an easy win in South Carolina. Easy by a possible 10+ points in some cases. The RealClearPolitics average has Obama up about 12 points.

Needless to say, I’m handing this one to Obama. He’s got a lot more appeal to Southerners than Hillary seems to. Furthermore, I think the attacking by Bill Clinton all week has hurt the Clinton campaign and only bolstered Obama in the state.

Polls close at 7pm ET in South Carolina and we’ll have the results as soon as they begin rolling in.
