Most of the GOP should thank the state of SC if we voted Romney the primaries are over and we have Mitt vs Obama and I wouldn't of voted. Ron Paul is still alive because of SC.


Ron Paul is still alive because of the miracles of modern medicine.

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.


Maybe young people just don't vote republican?

Seriously, though... lol.

Newt? If Newt fuging Gingrich actually wins the republican nomination... wow. I don't even know what to say in response to this development and the potential it has to actually launch Newt Gingrich into the G.O.P. nomination.

Every democratic strategist in the country right now is salivating at the prospect of Newt as the nominee. I'd ask if republican voters were really this crazy/dumb, but these are the same folks who booed a soldier on national TV and cheered the prospect of a poor person dying because they can't afford health insurance.

Not to mention, you know, the tea party.

each state decides. Last I heard, SC was still winner take all.


actually one person on CNN disagreed and said that everything before april splits the delegates.

I don't know what to think anymore...

As far as the democrats go, they have a set of attacks ready for any candidate put forth by the Repubs. You don't have to swallow it hook line and sinker however. They have their lines on Romney and Gingrich already, just think what their lines would be on Paul if he were closer to the top.

Surprising turnaround for Newt, he appeared to be dead a couple of weeks ago.

Fwiw, I still doubt he will win the nomination. But it might be a good thing in the long run if he does. He would likely lose badly against Obama, and that might finally end the Tea Party's influence.

If Ron Pauls foreign policy was somewhere near sanity, the tea party faithful would be flocking to him and we would have a whole new conversation going on.

Perhaps, but if he did change his foreign policy views, it would cause him to lose some of his appeal with the group that is devoted to him.
