I think the mainstream media, or MSM, and Washington elite think the majority of voters just fell off the turnip truck. But the South Carolina primary election and other current voting trends show otherwise.
The MSM are working double time to get us to forget about the unprecedented results of the South Carolina primary election, but they are a sign of what could be in Florida, Nevada and beyond. They are also proof that American citizens will not be outwitted by the political shenanigans of the powers that be. Let me give you a few examples.

Despite that ABC paraded Newt’s bitter ex-wife across their airways two nights before the South Carolina election, Newt won women’s votes by 36 percent to 30 percent over Romney. And married women and evangelical women both backed Gingrich with 40 percent support. (Women in general backed Newt 38 percent, and men were 42 percent in support of him.)
Despite (or maybe, on account of) Mitt’s Massachusetts creation of Romneycare and promises for Social Security’s perpetuity, Newt gained 47 percent of the vote (to Mitt’s 36 percent) among those ages 65 and older.
Despite the MSM’s attempt to convey Newt as old and outdated, he received 27 percent of votes from among those 18-29 years of age, only being beaten by Ron Paul’s 32 percent.
