And then there were four. All the media networks are reporting that Rick Perry will drop out today, after terrible performances in Iowa and New Hampshire. Perry is a great local candidate, he's boisterous and fun and personable, but he's a fool when it comes to national issues. He had no clue about foreign policy and was very poor on the national economy.
Basically, he was a worse version of Bush.
This is now the second candidate to drop out this week, and we'll see how it affects the polls come Saturday in South Carolina. Huntsman endorsed Romney and while there is no indication as to who Perry will support, I would guess it will be Gingrich. Either way, most of his voters will probably go to Gingrich anyway.
