Last night, Sarah Palin said if she was voting in South Carolina, she would vote for Newt in order to prolong the race.

Today, Laura Ingraham is urging him to drop out to avoid splitting the conservative vote, since he has no chance at winning South Carolina.

A South Carolina State Senator, Larry Grooms has defected from the Perry camp and is now backing Santorum as of this morning.

@AdamBeam is reporting that Rick Perry has cancelled his appearance today at Bob Jones University, which 3 days before a primary is akin to a sighting of the Grim Reaper in South Carolina presidential politics.

And in other news, Perry is now polling third the Presidential primary in…..TEXAS, behind Romney and Gingrich.

I don’t say this often, but I agree with Laura Ingraham. It’s time for Perry to go, and avoid being this cycle’s Fred Thompson.

  1. Oh Scott, I fear that your analysis is spot on as usual! Time to say good bye to the modern day cowboy… Sad, but it’s time to coalesce around the one guy that can beat Romney: Gingrich.
