Will Ron Paul get the Surge in South Carolina?Submitted by TylerLiberty on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 05:23
Ron Paul has been scoring a very good number of votes among Evangelicals, independents, Tea Party members, youth, middle class (30-50k/year), etc. His support is broad, his crowds are diverse, and his message is clear. Liberty for everyone.
The military presence in SC might sway Ron Paul's direction for the state. That is one demographic that wasn't much of an impact in Iowa and New Hampshire, compared to South Carolina. I'm taking their donation support seriously, since we don't hear about poll numbers from them. They're level headed people who are active members in society, they will vote. Ron Paul's "I went" remark in NH will hopefully pull in support from them.
So far we've seen Santorum have a surge, Huntsman kind of had one, and now South Carolina's turn to pick Ron Paul. As we saw from that room of undecided voters, Ron Paul was having a large appeal from those who are deciding late.
The first small jump in his poll numbers should happen in the next coming days. South Carolinians will have almost 2 weeks to ponder the legitimacy of Ron Paul's candidacy and their personal values. I think it's obvious that Ron Paul is a legitimate candidate after two 20%+ performances.
