Kerry's Super Tuesday

The early numbers. (Plus a redundant California numbers addendum.)

As the big boys at the network anchor desks might put it, "There's a big trend shaping up on Super Tuesday, and it's not a Dennis Kucinich surge!"

Up and down the Atlantic coast and inland to Ohio, John Kerry is fanny-whacking his opponents and packing his bags for the Boston convention, according to the weighted exit polls of one media organization. The only exception to the sweep is the fairy tale republic of Vermont, where the late Howard Dean has crawled out of his political grave to stake claim to the pittance of his state's 15 delegates.

Remember, these numbers are only tentative numbers, not necessarily predictive of the final results but used by media organizations to get a Tuesday afternoon handle on what may unfold by early Tuesday evening, when the Big Computer model analyzes the data.
