Gingrich wins South Carolina
I'm not sure what John King thought he was going to accomplish by asking Newt that question. He must didn't learn the lesson Juan Williams was taught just a few days earlier. The GOP nomination was all but a lock for Romney according to the wizards of politics just a few weeks ago, now they don't know what to say. Santorum was awarded Iowa after the recount, Romney won New Hampshire, and now Newt has won South Carolina. The question that needs to be asked is obvious going forward for the Romney campaign. Romney did terrible in southern primaries back in 2008. Is this the beginning of a repeat? Romney didn't just lose by 12 percentage points in South Carolina, he lost by double digits even with the endorsement of the Governor Nikki Haley, more money, a professional political ground game etc. Even though Romney has the money to media blanket the large state of Florida, I have to wonder will that be enough. Rick Santorum might as well drop out. He finished with 10% of the vote yesterday. For him to claim to be a social conservative and yet finished in last place in a social conservative state should have been a wake up call to him, but he said he's still going forward to Florida. It looks like as of now there is no real front runner.
