West leads big in Broward and Palm Beach

The song at Republican Allen West's party at 10 p.m.: "I can't get no satisfaction."

But the poll results showed he was quite satisfied: West leads about 57 percent to 44 percent in the Congressional 22 District currently represented by Democrat Ron Klein. The song from Klein's campaign earlier: "I'm a believer."

In Broward, the more left-leaning part of the district, West leads 54 percent with about half the precincts counted while he leads 57 percent in the Palm Beach portion where 45 of 277 precincts had been counted.
