I don’t know how many of you know this, but South Carolina doesn’t connect people’s party with their registration to vote. In order to participate in the voting on the Republican contenders, all you had to do was be registered to vote.
So, given that coming into South Carolina, Romney and Gingrich were closer to neck and neck, does anybody else have the feeling that the rather larger than expected margin of win might have something to do with Democratic voters turning up and voting on the candidate that they would Most like their Democratic candidate to run against?
Honestly. Newt Gingrich has a Huge target painted on him. Sure he’s a fire in the belly debater, but he’s got to withstand 9 more months of intense Democratic attacks, and he has So many ways of being attacked. He’s Not a good choice for a Republican candidate; but if you think his winning in South Carolina is a harbinger of his chances against a sitting President, be my guest, and follow right along with the current press craze. Either way, They’ll love reporting on this race.
