McCain Takes Florida

With nearly half the votes counted, McCain beats Romney 36% to 32% in Florida's Republican primary, which is winner-takes-all contest for delegates.

McCain did well among latino voters, yet not so well among the military, surprisingly enough. Does this strengthen McCain against Clinton in a national election, who is depending heavily on the hispanic vote, and who is watching her support among African-Americans dwindle?

This primary seems to put to rest the notion that McCain cannot win in the Republican base. This was the first primary contest so far in which neither Democrats nor independents are allowed to vote for Republicans, and yet McCain won.
