Politisite Predicts Huckabee by 5% Points
Here is the Race we have had our finger on. Iron Mill Interactive Media is based in Columbia South Carolina. Politisite is our political science component. Without a great deal of analysis, here is our projections for South Carolina.
- Huckabee 32%
- McCain 27%
- Thompson 19%
- Romney 11%
- Paul 6%
- Giuliani 4%
- Hunter 1%
Here are some of my observations from the South Carolina Primary
I did want to share that it is raining and 39 degrees here in Columbia, SC. The north has sleet and
snow with much lower temperatures. With, what we call here, cold temperatures, we can project that the elderly and young will be less representative in the election. Many news services have been projecting low turn out. Politisite took a quick run to the various voting precincts in the area, the turn out appears to be medium to high.
Governor Mike Huckabee took his usual 12 miles jog with supporter, South Carolina’s Lt. Governor. Huckabee said to reporters that if he can run in the rain, voters will be able to make it to the voting precinct in there area.
In the Myrtle Beach area, Voting machines malfunctioned and paper ballots had to be used by voters. This is a heavy John McCain area and when the paper ballots ran out the McCain camp asked the state to leave the presents open a bit longer to compensate for the voters who could not vote. This will probably allow the voting in Myrtle Beach area to continue to 8:00 pm
I also wanted to show who the movers and shakers in South Carolina Politics are supporting. Senator Lindsy Graham is a McCain Supporter. Graham the senior senator supported the failed McCain in the 2000 Election as well. The Ultra Conservative Senator Jim DeMint is a major supporter of Governor Mitt Romney. Governor Mike Huckabee’s endorsements are Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer, and former Governor David Beasley. As you can see, there is a reverse opinion who can better lead our county.
Here is what others are saying:

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee created quite a scene this morning as he showed up at the Wildewood Precinct at Polo Road Park in Richland County around 9:30 a.m. He was accompanying his South Carolina campaign chairman, Mike Campbell, who voted at the
About 30 people, mostly media members, crowded around Huckabee just outside the entrance to Polo Road Park. The entourage later blocked traffic as they followed Huckabee across the street, where he greeted campaign workers holding up signs backing his candidacy.
Standing in the pouring rain, Huckabee praised his supporters. “Our voters are like the post office,” he said. “They don’t let rain, sleet or snow keep anybody home.”
He joked that voters who support the other candidates should remain safe in their homes away from the cold rain.
