I am an "old white male" and a registered Republican. Romney lost the SC primary, and then lost the general election. This "proves" the adage that no Republican has won the presidency without winning in SC first. I did not vote for Romney OR Gingrich, and had to settle for my third choice, Santorum, because my first choices had been eliminated or dropped out before that. The predictions proved correct, but I am not sure that a third party is the answer. Perhaps a new "second party" is more what needs to arise.
