Told ya’ women would not fall for ABC’s blatant attempt to knock Gingrich out. And the press is still calling Romney the “frontrunner” when he hasn’t Ever been the frontrunner. Now watch the GOP establishment (led by Karl Rove and his little white board) try to bolster Romney, along with the media and the demos. So predictable. And the MSM (MFM) this morning is babbling on endlessly (MSNBC particularly). They are so far off base they look silly and I think even they know it. Their usual tactics are not working as well as expected.
Gingrich – 243,153 40%
Romney – 167,279 28%
100% precincts reporting
FLORIDA EARLY VOTING STARTED YESTERDAY
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has won the South Carolina primary by a landslide, with numbers so big that the major networks called the race almost immediately after the polls closed.
Heading into South Carolina, Gingrich’s campaign was lagging after poor performances in Iowa and New Hampshire — and drawing criticism for ads that his Super PAC was running attacking former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for his time at Bain Capital.
But Gingrich turned it around and surged to victory. With 99 percent of precincts reporting results, he was winning every single county, which would mean he would take all of the states’ 25 delegates. The overall vote count showed a 40–28 advantage for Gingrich over Romney.
“With your help, we are now moving to Florida and beyond,”Gingrich told a raucous, enthusiastic crowd at his victory party in the state capital of Columbia.
