Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary in overwhelming fashion. Now each of the four contenders left standing has won a primary except for Ron Paul.
The South Carolina primary results:
Newt Gingrich 243,398 40.4% Winner
Mitt Romney 167,957 27.9%
Rick Santorum 102,213 17.0%
Ron Paul 78,093 13.0%
Others 10,772 1.8%
I know that Ron Paul is the alternative with the greater difference, but is there a path to his nomination? He isn’t likely to do well in Florida, the retirement capital of the nation, with his opposition to Social Security. That’s the next contest, January 31. Where can Paul win?
Who do you think would be better, Mitt or Newt?
