Tip Off: The Hotline
This one nearly flew under my radar. It seems Mitt Romney has won a South Carolina straw poll by a HUGE margin. He had more than TWICE the support of Giuliani, and more than TRIPPLE the support of McCain. Romney won with 53%, followed by Giuliani at 19%, with McCain trailing with a low 15%.
Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney won the SC Colleagiate Republican Organization’s straw poll yesterday. Ironically, the SCCRO’s convention this year was keynoted by State Sen. John Courson, a major backer of Sen. John McCain’s. No word on whether — or how much — Romney’s campaign paid to move the vote here.
As for charges of moving in the vote, I wouldn’t pay too much attention to them, as the article mentions, there is no evidence of any activity of that kind. More good news for Romney.
