The Campaign Spot:
The Great Big Early Exit Poll Report  —  I just got a big pile of exit poll data.  —  The early wave in California: McCain 40 percent, Romney 36 percent, Huckabee 10 percent.  —  Fascinating and fun as it is, I remind my readers that this doesn't tell us that much, as we don't know what the district-by-district breakdown is.

The Campaign Spot:
Latest Exits Include One Massive ‘Wow.’ I Mean, ‘WOW.’  —  Here's a later round of exits.  It includes an absolute shocker that, I suspect, will have Hugh Hewitt jumping out of his chair...  Arizona: McCain 36 percent, Romney 36 percent, Huckabee 7 percent.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
DEM EXITS, SECOND WAVE  —  These are the second wave exits.  Not certain whether or not they're weighted.  Assume they're not.  —  GA: C- 25.5, O - 75  —  CT: C - 45, O - 52.2  —  IL: C - 29.1, O - 69.6  —  AL: C - 37, O - 59.6  —  DE: C - 41.9, O - 55.6
The Politico:
Berman's count: 606-534  —  David Plouffe, on a conference call just now, offered the Obama campaign's estimate of where they stand at this moment in terms of delegates.  —  “We are, in terms of delegates, ahead currently: about 606 to 534, in terms of pledged delegates awarded tonight,” he said.

OBAMA CAMPAIGN PROJECTS 72 DELEGATE LEAD (FOR NOW)...  Barack Obama's presidential campaign is claiming an early lead in pledged delegates for Super Tuesday.  —  In a media conference call at 10:30pm, Campaign Manager David Plouffe estimated that Obama leads Hillary Clinton in pledged delegates by 606 to 534.

McCain piles up delegates while Dems split theirs  —  (CNN) — Sen. John McCain cemented his front-runner status Tuesday, piling up big wins coast-to-coast, according to CNN projections.  —  Democratic voters remain evenly split over which of their candidates they would rather see get the nomination.
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
The morning after  —  I think John O'Sullivan is right.  There was an explicit anti-Romney vote in the south.  A mere month ago, in the wake of Iowa and New Hampshire, I received a ton of emails from southern readers saying these pansy northern states weren't the “real” conservative heartland …
Andy McCarthy / The Corner:
Re: The Die Has Been Cast  —  Remember the Clinton years?  We should — we may be on the verge of reliving them.  But I recall being most frustrated when some anti-Clinton zealot would claim the president had ordered an assassination or run cocaine through Mena Airport.

The Coming Meltdown For The Democrats  —  Early in the race, Republicans appeared headed to a brokered convention.  GOP primary voters couldn't decide on a front-runner, and it looked like three or even four candidates could make it to the national convention with significant numbers of delegates, touching off a floor fight.

Romney's Expenses Per Delegate Top $1M  —  Republican campaign operatives call it the Gramm-o-meter, the money a candidate spends per delegate won, in honor of Phil Gramm, the former Texas senator who spent $25 million and won just 10 delegates, or $2.5 million per, in 1996.
Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
CALIFORNIA....Hmmm.  Exit polling suggests that Hillary Clinton won California by seven points, 51-44.  If she won the absentee ballot race even more strongly, she'll beat Obama by 10 points or more.  —  More broadly, it's a little surprising that there have been so many big victories tonight on the Democratic side.
