South Carolina Election, The South Carolina primary results rolled in last night and as the Guardian has reported: Gingrich not only won, but with a convincing majority. Gingrich took 40% of the vote, Romney 28%, Rick Santorum 17% and Ron Paul 13%.
But how close were the results in the different counties of South Carolina?
The datablog is collecting data for the 2012 US presidential race, county by county, in one big spreadsheet.
In this spreadsheet you can already see the Iowa caucus results and New Hampshire primary.
We’re working to keep on top of the recounts so the data is as accurate as it can be.
We have just added the latest South Carolina State Election Commission results. You can see a summary of the data below.
Some simpleanlysis of the votes Newt Gingrich received in each county relative to the total votes for that county shows that he was most strongly supported in the counties of Edgefield then Williamsburg, and he received the least support in Richland.
