Feeling Like Clinton Will Win

I've been having a terrible, terrible feeling that Senator Clinton will win South Carolina tonight.

Part of the early South Carolina exit poll makes me even more nervous.

After the contentious Democratic debate Monday night, three in four Obama voters said Clinton had attacked Obama unfairly and slightly fewer than half accused their own candidate of attacking Clinton unfairly. Two-thirds of Clinton voters said Obama attacked her unfairly and nearly as many said she attacked him unfairly. Edwards voters were more likely than either of the other candidates' supporters to say both Clinton and Obama attacked each other unfairly.

I may be overanalyzing or even analyzing entirely incorrectly, but I'm feeling like the fact that as many as 1/3 of Clinton voters felt that she was attacking Obama unfairly but he wasn't attacking her unfairly (then again, it could be 0) means people dislike her but are voting for her anyway.

So very nervous ....
