BREAKING NEWS: Newt leads Romney in S.C.

Public Policy Polling is conducting a three-day tracking-type poll in South Carolina.  Last night’s results show that Newt Gingrich has now taken a 6-point lead over Romney (34% to 28%). Ron Paul is in third place with 15%.  Rick Santorum is in fourth place with 14%.  Gingrich’s debate performance seems to have been a big factor in his gain in the poll.  56% of those polled watched the debate.  Debate watchers went for Gingrich by a margin of 43% to 27%.  Gingrich as a 50% to 18% advantage among S.C. Tea Party supporters, 39% to 23% among “Very Conservative” likely Republican voters and 37% to 20% among evangelicals.  The margin of error is +/- 5%.
