An interesting note in tonight's election, write-ins did better than former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson.
Total Republican write-ins received 3,987 votes (2%), while Fred Thompson garnered 2,768 votes (1%).
Thompson is apparently not worried about his lackluster performance because tonight, in South Carolina, he told supporters "All of my buddies who are running for president this year are up freezing in New Hampshire tonight. You know, shivering around, walking around, there are snowbanks up to about right here. And I'm in South Carolina. Now who do you think is smart enough to be president?"
