USA | Mitt Romney tog hem New Hampshire med 39,3 %. På andra plats Ron Paul (22,9 %) och på tredje plats Jon Huntsman (16,9 %).

Romney blev därmed historisk. Han är den förste republikanske presidentkandidaten som inte innehar presidentämbetet – ”non-incumbent – som ändå lyckats vinna både Iowa och New Hampshire.

Och nu börjar kriget om South Carolina.

I artikeln ”Ads bombard South Carolina airwaves ahead of primary” har Alana Semuels i Los Angeles Times tagit sig en titt på den positiva och negativa politisk reklam – inte minst kampanj videos – som väljarna möts av.

När det gäller s.k. ”attack ads” skriver Semuels:

Romney’s super PAC, Restore our Future, is repeating an anti-Newt Gingrich ad that also ran in Iowa, which begins, “Ever notice how some people make a lot of mistakes?” and goes on to detail Gingrich’s “mistakes,” such as working with Nancy Pelosi and attacking Mitt Romney. Anti-Gingrich ads helped dampen support for the candidate in Iowa, where he finished in a disappointing fourth place.

Newt Gingrich is running a new ad, “Changed?” released Tuesday, that criticizes Romney’s abortion policies when he became Massachusetts governor. Starting with a still of Romney’s face, it asks what happened after Romney changed his position to oppose abortion rights, then accuses him of appointing a judge in favor of abortion rights, expanding access to abortion pills and signing a healthcare bill with government-funded abortions. “Massachusetts moderate Mitt Romney. He can’t be trusted,” the ad concludes.

An ad paid for by Ron Paul attacks Rick Santorum as a corrupt free spender who opposed a right-to-work act and voted to raise the debt ceiling. In colors of black, white and red, it quotes criticism of Santorum from newspapers such as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, saying that Santorum has “a record of betrayal.” It accuses him of collaborating with union leaders and being one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress.
