This Corner post raises the question whether Fred Thompson is divining voters of his own from Huckabee crowds, or if he is merely splitting off voters from Huckabee or McCain thus strengthening the other candidate, enabling a victory with a mere plurality of votes.

It starts off with the possibility, imposed by an e-mailer, that what Fred Thompson is offering (real Conservatism) has little appeal to the type of South Carolinan in the Huckabee crowd. That suggests terrible things about South Carolinans.
