South Carolina may Prove difficult for Romney

Romney may be the pick of the republican establishment but I think it's becoming more and more evident to most everyone that the public isn't in lockstep with them. With a win in Iowa and New Hampshire, you would think that no matter what, he would have a big advantage going into the South Carolina primary. But, according to latest polls, Romney and Newt are in a virtual tie for the lead, even though both are only polling in the mid to upper 20's.
Newt has always thought he would do better in the south, but his attacks on Romney seem to be working better than the talk show pundits thought it would. The talking heads, like Boortz, Hannity, Limbaugh and others said that Newt was going against capitalism, I think Newt was just showing what would happen to Romney if he got the nomination, and this is mild as to what the Obama democrat team will do to him.
If Romney can't stand up to the heat in South Carolina, how will he hold up to the heat nationwide? He has tried to explain what Bain Capitol did and try to say they created jobs, but when the democrats start rolling out the victims, explanations won't heal the heartbroken and disgruntled.
Charles krauthammer may have said it best on the show on Fox Special Report with Bret Baier when he said, "this is warning." Romeny will have to figure out some kind of defense, I don't think it's possible, but the fact that it is coming out so early may be the only thing that saves Romney.
If he does become the nominee and this comes out again in the summer or fall he can push it aside by just saying, "I've answered all these questions and you need to refer back to my answers," then brush it aside and go on.
But, South Carolina could be a spring board for stiffer competition in the south and Newt may be able to at least make some head way and show Romeny is not as invincible as the establishment thinks. He will have a hard time with the southern states for one more reason that the talking head refuse to admit. That the south just doesn't trust north eastern politicians.
