Huck still has more delegates than McCain

Even after the Michigan primary, where Mike Huckabee picked up only only one delegate, he's still way ahead of McCain in the delegate count. Romney won, and that was for the best because it weakens McCain in South Carolina.
Overall, Romney has 42 delegates from the first four contests, followed by Huckabee with 32 and McCain with 13. A total of 1,191 delegates are needed to secure the Republican nomination.

If Huck wins South Carolina as expected, he will go into Florida with the most delegates and the greatest momentum of any candidate.
