After a lot of fake drama at the top of the hour, the cable nets are projecting a Trump win in South Carolina. The focus in the initial coverage was “three-way race” and “top-tier candidates” but Trump won. Period. The silly notion of strong third place finishes and dominating second place showings and related pablum should not obscure that Trump just won in core Republican, white, Southern, religious South Carolina. So much for New York values.
