In a two-ballot squeaker, Mike Huckabee has pipped Mitt Romney as the Republican winner in West Virginia.

Here’s how it happened:

In the first round of voting Mitt Romney had a 41% plurality, which gave him the lead over Mike Huckabee with 33% and John McCain with 16%.  The McCain people know that Romney is a man without honor, and they also know that it’s to McCain’s strategic advantage for Huckabee to outperform Romney today.  So most of them threw their support behind Huckabee.  In the second round of voting, Huckabee prevailed with a 52% majority compared to Romney’s 47% and McCain’s residual 1%.

No whining now, Mitt Romney!
