Similar results in 2008

It looks like Romney pulled a similar stunt in 2008. I was checking out the 2012 results for myself and decided to do a comparison to the 2008 results for a few counties and found that in at least two counties where Huckabee and Romney were close in votes: Beaufort and Charleston, it seems like the votes were flipped similar to these current examples.

Similar to the 2012 info I looked at, Romney is the only candidate that is consistently non-linear and breaks from his early trend-line to end up with more votes, and it seemed to be at the expenses of Huckabee.

Here is a link to the precinct data I used from 2008 for a few counties:

I pulled that 2008 data from the South Carolina website:
