Big news in the GOP primary race today.
First, it turns out that Rick Santorum, not Mitt Romney, won Iowa.
Second, it turns out that Newt Gingrich, not Mitt Romney, may well win South Carolina (that is, if ABC’s interview with Newt’s ex-wife who claims he wanted an “open marriage” doesn’t do him in). Romney had been up in the polls lately, but Newt is gaining ground quickly, and Rick Perry dropped out today to endorse him.
If Newt does manage a win in South Carolina, that will mean that instead of going an extraordinary 3-for-3 in the first three races, Romney will actually have gone a pedestrian 1-for-3 – with the 1 being New Hampshire, which he was going to win all along.
Is not-Mitt, who has always been favored by the majority of Republican voters, staging a comeback?
