Gingrich won the South Carolina primary
Ron Paul 13%
Let us suppose that nationally Romney has 30-40% support and Ron Paul 20%, then Gingrich and Romney cannot get to a majority. it then goes to a brokered convention. This would open up the choices. Romney would still be favored because Gingrich has so many enemies. One of the other Republicans could also steal it at a convention.
