Exit Polls in South Carolina


Here are the Exit Polls in South Carolina:
Sixty-four percent said the debates were an important factor for them; just 34 percent said they were not. Gingrich won standing ovations in both debates while Romney often struggled - and at one point received a smattering of boos for equivocating over how many years of his tax returns he would release.

Gingrich, who polls suggest overtook Romney in the final days before today's primary, is hoping for a victory that would keep Romney from locking up the nomination before the end of the month. A majority of voters - 53 percent - said they made up their mind about who to back within the last few days. 

The exit poll data showed that South Carolina voters overwhelmingly cited the economy as the most important issue, with 61 percent citing it. (The economy was the top issue in Iowa and New Hampshire as well.) 

It was followed by the federal budget deficit (23 percent), abortion (8 percent) and health care (4 percent). 

Seventy-eight percent of voters in South Carolina, where the unemployment rate is 9.9 percent, said they are "very" worried about the nation's economy. 
Honestly, judging by the exit polls Newt will fail in achieving these things.

His speech divided this country like no other. I wonder just how many caucasians are here illegal. A lot of them like the way Newt lets them break the laws of America. Grandma is stealing someone's place.

Newt likes blowjobs and he is no conservative.
