they're obviously watching tonight very closely but they weren't expecting anything too shocking. one is an associate professor of political science and african- american studies at the university of south carolina. another is a political expert here in south carolina now but was executive director of the new hampshire republican party back in the late-80's. first question to the experts -- is too much emphasis placed on
iowa? political expert scott malyerck... "we put way too much emphasis on the caucuses, i think, because it's really a test of organization ability. can you organize your folks? can you get them to go out and caucus in somebody's home and stick with you?" malyerck points to past g-o-p winners like huckabee and santorum, who ultimately failed to
shaw has a bit of a different take. "iowa is not bellwether in all cases, but let's keep in mind that iowa sort of set a tone for obama's election in 2008 that, if he had lost iowa, then the voters in south carolina would have been a little less sanguine about his chances." next question -- could the group of candidates in the south carolina primary be smaller than in iowa and new hampshire? "probably by new hampshire you'll begin to see candidates, particularly, you know, folks who keep making it to the second debate, really think about their chances." "you have to ask
yourself, 'do we stick it out? do we hope against all hope that we're going to do well in new hampshire?' i think after new hampshire, you'll definitely start to see people drop out before they get to south carolina." a few other points, shaw says south carolina will become very important to hillary clinton if she does poorly in iowa and new hampshire. "south carolina has to become her firewall, and because south carolina has a large, you know, african-american population, of course, and that population is critical to the democratic party
some indication about that coalition or that coalition partner being on her side." an observation from malerck, he expects trump to do well in all three of the first states, especially south carolina. "polls are a snapshot of what people are thinking right then and there. we've done polls in south carolina in conservative senate districts in the upstate that show trump really far ahead. we've done polls along the coast that show trump ahead, so he seems to be attracting conservative republicans, and evangelicals, so he's running the gauntlet." shaw also talked about trump's strong lead in state's like south carolina. he says that support seems so strong that it's transcending questions of whether or not trump is actually a rino, or republican in name only. after a better-than- expected showing in iowa tonight, senator marco rubio
endorsement in the palmetto state. cnn reports that senator tim scott plans to endorse rubio tomorrow. this potential endorsement could be key as the candidates start focusing more attention on south carolina. rubio, showed he's far from out--placing third in tonight's iowa caucuses. and, we'll continue to keep you posted on the latest results throughout the night on wistv dot com. tune in tomorrow to wis sunrise for a break down of tonight's vote in iowa.
