Newt comes in 2nd again in a South Carolina straw poll

The second South Carolina Presidential straw poll of the year occurred this morning, and Newt, as he did last weekend, came in second. However, the winner today was not former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee -- whose absence from the important early primary state put him in a three-way tie for fifth place.

Rick Santorum, who, CNN notes, has visited the Palmetto State more than any other possible candidate, won with 31% of the ballots cast at the Greenville County GOP convention. Newt received 14%.

Next weekend the Lexington and Charleston County Republican Parties hold straw polls.
