SOUTHERN REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE 2012 IS AN ATTENDANCE FAILURE


Aside from the well attended CNN debate last night the SRLC 2012 has been an attendance failure. The website of SRLC 2010 states that 3,000 delegates attended the conference two years ago in New Orleans, Louisiana and was hailed as a centerpiece of Republican fervor and TEA Party strength two years before a critical presidential election. Today Newt Gingrich cancelled his committment to speak at the conference when fewer than 30 people showed up at the venue in Charleston, South carolina.

Fox News is reporting that while 1,700 delegates were registered most crowds for events numbered less than 100 persons. We, Ourselves, of the Collective can chalk this up to the rift between the GOP establishment who support Mitt Romney and TEA Party conservatives/evangelicals who do not appear to have a candidate of choice. In the 2010 SRLC straw poll Mitt Romney earned 24% in a statistical tie with Ron Paul who also had 24% of the vote. Next in a tie for third were Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich tied with 18% each. Rick Santorum, the only candidate remianing who was on the ballot in 2010, who spoke before a tiny crowd on Thursday recieved 2% of the votes cast.

No word on the straw poll for this year.
