Stats on SC Dems

Fascinating stats from the pre-debate survey in South Carolina reveal how 156 out of 374 respondents had changed their mind about who they'd vote for "in the last few weeks." 32% of those folks who changed their mind had intended on voting for Dean. 23% had previously supported Clark. So, out of eight candidates, more than half the folks who changed their mind had intended to vote for Clark or Dean. Apparently, they both made good initial impressions, but couldn't stand up to the scrutiny of the process. Or maybe the voters just decided, more pragmatically, that Edwards or Kerry were more likely to beat Bush.
