In 2008, Huckabee won Iowa and decided to participate in NH when he could have gone on to SC directly and campaign for a win. Instead, he did poorly in NH, and lost valuable time to counter Fred’s onslaught in SC and came out second to McCain in SC. The rest is history!
So in 2012, it is interesting to know what Newt, Santorum, and Perry would do in the next two weeks. Romney needs to be careful as not to be too focussed on stopping Newt and let Santorum sneak in a winner at SC! My hope is that Newt has somehow stopped his decline and mount a furious fightback! In the primary, i am a ABR&P as in anybody but Romney and Paul!
