Gallup: Romney Leads Newt By 1 In National Preference

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Newt, Polls, Republicans, Romney

Well, you could see this one coming from a mile away…

From Gallup…

The most shocking stat? Romney’s 23 point lead has evaporated…in a week!

Romney held a 23-point lead over Gingrich as recently as Jan. 11-15. Thus, in a matter of one week, Republicans who are registered to vote have shifted their support substantially — with Romney dropping 8 points and Gingrich gaining 14 points. The latest Gallup tracking update covers Jan. 18-22, encompassing Gingrich’s come-from-behind 12-point victory over Romney in Saturday’s South Carolina Republican primary. Gingrich began to gain on Romney well before Saturday’s vote, however, most likely reflecting his performance in the two nationally televised debates held in South Carolina last Monday and Thursday.

So goes South Carolina…so goes the GOP nation?

More as it develops…
