“ Before he jumped in the race, I really, really liked Tim Scott. He has a very compelling story, and his political instincts are largely the kind I prefer to see in a Republican politician. But he has this halting, rambling way of speaking, as if he doesn’t always quite know where he’s going with a sentence after he’s started to say something. He comes off as lost in his thoughts but scripted at the same time. And he’s such a soft-spoken and thoughtful-looking guy, when he dithers into bumper sticker populist sound bites, it comes off as jarring and forced.”

I agree. Tim Scott disappointed me. I was ready to support him, but he clearly needs to drop out at this point.
