SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: All right, it is time now for the final results from our text messaging poll.
And in first tonight, Ron Paul. He is having all those 3 percent of people call in, I'm sure. He got 33...
ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: Maybe he just did very well.
HANNITY: He got 33 percent. Well, it happens. Anyway, in second place tonight, Mike Huckabee getting 18 percent. And taking the third spot is Rudy Giuliani getting 15 percent.
Now I want to give you a quick — oh, by the way, fourth place is John McCain with 14 percent and Mitt Romney with 12 percent tonight.
And taking the six spot, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter both with 2 percent tonight.
Now I want to give you a special programming note, as you know, Senator Fred Thompson announcing that he will be entering this race and we will have a special interview right here, "Hannity & Colmes," our regular time, 9:00 Eastern, with Senator Thompson.
And we will probably ask him some of the questions that were asked to the other candidates tonight. You know one thing that is emerging here, and I know you love the Democrats, there are distinct differences on Iraq, on immigration, securing the borders, on taxes, on health care, on education. There is going to be a very interesting.
COLMES: Yes. And this will be good debate. And most — if you look the most of the polling, most of America is where the Democrats are, and certainly on the war — the War on Terror, the war in Iraq, how it is being conducted, how it is being fought, on education, on health care and a whole variety of issues.
HANNITY: You sound like a campaign commercial.
COLMES: Thank you so much. And I will send you a bill. But you know, Frank Luntz, earlier tonight in focus group showed that — and it did not show up on our text polling, that John McCain, according to the group he was with, did very well tonight than he has in previous debates.
HANNITY: Well, sometimes — there is a natural ebb and flow to this. And as people absorb a little bit more of the interview, sometimes things change over time. I will tell you this, the debates — we are now in Labor Day. People are paying attention. They have expedited this process. We will have the caucuses and the primaries in January. And then we get into the interesting debates between the Democrats and the Republicans and those differences.
COLMES: And that's when it gets really interesting. Then we see where America truly stands.
HANNITY: Well, this is — I doubt it. But this is where.
COLMES: Oh, well, we will see where America truly stands.
