Based on our analysis of the exit poll data, ABC News projects that Newt Gingrich will defeat Mitt Romney to win the South Carolina primary.

Gingrich's win today is a significant blow to Romney, who until days ago held a wide lead over his rivals. But the front-runner status quickly evaporated as the former Massachusetts governor was hit hard on his reluctance to reveal his tax records and his leadership at Bain & Co.


not really a surprise.

Get ready for a deluge of endorsements in the coming week for Romney. Establishment repubs just fell out of their chairs and got a big wake up call. FL will be the defining moment for the race, for all 4.

Only 6% of the voters were under the age of 30.

Over half were over 55.

C'mon, man.

A rainy Saturday with young people sleeping off Friday night.
Does not bode well for Paul. These are his main supporters and the reason he will finish last in SC

Delegate Count
Romney 19
Gingrich 17
Santorum 12
Paul 3

With Paul at 3 delegates and a last place finish. How long does he stay in?

Not sure where you are getting your info, but Paul has 10 delegates, more than santorum.

Quite honestly, I don't understand why anyone in SC wouldn't want to go vote today. You can have a big say in who the republican nominee will be. Hell, by the time the NC primary gets here, its likely that the nominee will be all but locked up.. and this is coming from a 23 year old male.

Romney, Paul and Santorum all got the same # of delegates out of Iowa, as the populous counties were basically divided between them. (7 delegates each)

Paul picked up 3 more in NH, Santorum didn't get any.

Newt's going to pick up all of the delegates in SC, it's winner take all. This should be interesting from a delegate perspective past super tuesday.

Is it winner take all? I thought GOP changed this and went ti the DNC model for primaries and caucuses.

I voted today for Newt I am sad that I did, The state of SC had to stop Mitt from winning the nomination Mitt is more liberal then Obama also Mitt will not be able to defeat Obama so we chose the best candidate that can win in Nov and that's not saying a lot,,,

I wanted to vote Paul but he has no realistic chance of winning..


I feel terrible for voting for Newt but I had no choice.

yep us young folks talk a big game, but dont show up when it matters...

Not a huge amount of young people live in SC though. I think Paul has alot of support here in Florida. We will see.

If he is still in when we vote in NC, I will vote for Newt also. Probably will be over by then however. There is no perfect candidate, as our current president illustrates, and any of the guys left will be better for the country than BO. Quit feeling bad.

Mitt and Obama wants to arrest Americans and detain for as long as he sees fit and label them terrorist w/o due process I cant support anybody who wants that.
