Who will win the South Carolina Republican primary?
Mitt Romney appeared to have clear sailing after "winning" Iowa and winning New Hampshire. In recent days, a seemingly dead Newt Gingrich campaign has gained strength and the outcome in SC for Romney appears in jeopardy.
Looking at it from the opposite side, I think Santorum gave the strongest, most focused performance of the night. I think, however, Gingrich appealed to the 'fight' in the crowd and so, given the mood of the country with the constant "us" vs. "them", I believe Gingrich will win the top spot in that state.
It does look like a surprisingly close contest right now. My guess, FWIW, is that Romney will pull it out--though in a way, I'd like to see Gingrich do well.
Just to set the record straight. Romney did not win Iowa, after tallying the votes it has been announced and confirmed that Santorum won Iowa by 31 votes.
Santorum actually being the winner without the big fanfare was why I put Romney's "winning" in quotes. Most people probably still think that he won because there was no big news conference to announce the change. Santorum got no real bump from what should have been a big deal for him.
