Obama, McCain lead in late polls
South Carolina Democrats are going to the polls today and according to the latest Zogby-Rueters poll, Obama should win fairly comfortably:
I might add that Obama shows a lead of from 6-19 points in all the polls taken this last week. This is eerily similar to the lead up to New Hampshire where all the polls showed an easy Obama win. If lightening were to strike twice, it would destroy Obama's candidacy while sending the pollsters back to the drawing board with regards to this race.

Such a result would almost certainly mean that Rudy Giuliani's bid will end although he and Huckabee may stick it out through Super Tuesday the following week.
