Actual votes don’t mean anything in the delegate hunt, just as points scored don’t matter to the BCS rankings.

But a vote cast is a real, tangible thing, an act of assent –a “connection” to use the favorite word of the Manhattan-Beltway media elite when minimizing Romney’s record, or a clear measurement of number two status that counts a straw poll in Missouri as worth something even if no delegates were awarded, or a recognition that Newt didn’t just win inSouth Carolina, he romped there.

I refer you to my earlier piece assessing the primary campaign to date and why I think Santorum is ranked #2 in the GOPBCS at this moment, but Newt backers should grab on to this tally as their evidence of Avis status.
