After falling out of contention in Iowa, Christie doubled down in New Hampshire, but couldn’t crack the top five at 7.5%, but isn’t polling well in South Carolina. Reuters dropped the news:

Fiorina had an even more disappointing New Hampshire result, getting only 4.2% and also not showing a big surge in South Carolina.

“While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

Fiorina is the former CEO of Hewlett Packard, and was the first woman to chair a Fortune top 20 company. She made a name for herself among the GOP contenders, hammering Hillary Clinton over and over again and likely putting herself at the top of a list of VP candidates.

While there hasn’t been a recent South Carolina poll, the recent data from Real Clear Politics has Trump at 36%, way ahead of Cruz at 19.7%, Rubio 12,7%, Bush at 10%, Carson 8.7% and Christie at 2.3%. Note: as of now, none of those polls taken in South Carolina were conducted after the Iowa caucus, even if they were published later.
