Newt won because... [View all]

The S.C. vote for Newt was fueled by his responses in the debates to charges of racism and "open marriage" advocacy. He got two raucousness, unprecedented standing ovations when he attached the question, the premise of the questions, the questioner and the media. BTW, he never answeredthe questions/allegations.

IMO without those moments, Newt loses.

The SC vote was a backlash by the SC voters. They were not going to let the media pick their winner, the voter is. Many of Newt's votes were a statement to back up a family member who was attached by someone outside the family.

CNN, ABC and Juan Williams gave Newt a giant, ribbon wrapped gift.

Florida is going to be the first test on a neutral court and will determine the nominee.
