* Before Monday's debate, Mitt was losing ground, and his debate performance was weak / below average
* Before Monday's debate, Newt was GAINING ground, and his debate performance was fantastic
* Rick Perry gained into upper single-digits but his debate performance was mediocre
* Rick Santorum was losing ground rapidly, AND his debate performance was mediocre
* Jon Huntsman's support was ONLY 1% in the latest poll, and that support won't ALL go to Romney so don't sweat him

SC voters: If you liked Rick or Rick, THINK ABOUT THIS before voting....

Each congressional district will have 2 delegates given to the winner-take-all within the district (that's 14 delegates total)

And Statewide, there will be 11 delegates given to the winner-take-all at the state level

So let's assume Romney is still barely in 1st place in the polls just before the vote.
Let's assume there is only ONE close NON-Romney in 2nd place (Newt).

Maybe YOU would prefer Rick or Rick....

But, IF YOU Vote for Rick or Rick, you have most likely helped award ALL delegates TO ROMNEY because it is WINNER TAKE ALL!!!!

The ONLY way to NOT hand your SC delegates to ROMNEY is to consolidate all conservative votes behind the LEADING NON-ROMNEY

Is this the same as saying that if you vote 3rd Party or write in Sarah Palin in the General, then you might as well be voting for Obama? Because that line of reasoning is stupid.

If I lived in South Carolina, I would be proud to vote for Rick Perry.

I just find it sort of ironic that one RINO was doing opposition research on another RINO.

Anyway, points well taken on the SC primary. Only a few delegates have been awarded in Iowa and NH so technically, this race is still wide open. Just think, if Newt was to win SC decisively and collect most of the delegates, he will go into Florida well ahead of Romney in terms of delegates.

My only concern is that none of the non-Romney candidates have much money and organization behind them beyond Florida. So it is very important that a non-Romney candidate do well in SC and Florida so that February can be dedicated to raising money and building a national organization in time for Super Tuesday (March 6).

without santorum or perry in the race romney would not win SC.

unfortunatly it is going to take a SC loss to drive perry or santorum out and have them stop wasting out time according to this chart.
