(CNN) - John McCain is doing much better among evangelicals in South Carolina than he did in Iowa, according to CNN's exit polls, but Mike Huckabee is still the overwhelming favorite of the group.
According to the exit polls, 54 percent of South Carolina Republican primary voters identify themselves as "born again" evangelicals. Forty percent of them supported Huckabee, compared to 27 percent who favored McCain.
In Iowa, Huckabee won 46 percent support among the group, while McCain meanwhile garnered just 10 percent.
