Newt Gingrich Takes South Carolina Lead

According to new polling PPP did yesterday Newt Gingrich has now taken a lead over Mitt Romney in South Carolina.

Newt Gingrich 34%
Mitt Romney 28%
Ron Paul 15%
Rick Santorum 14%
Rick Perry 5%
Buddy Roemer 3%

These are the factors that could change things before Saturday:

1. Another GOP debate tonight (8PM on CNN.) Gingrich’s huge surge since Monday night’s debate proves that debates do matter. If Gingrich can have another strong debate performance it could give him another boost right before the primary.

2. Rick Perry dropping out and endorsing Gingrich.

3. The news that Romney actually lost Iowa.

4. The interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex wife airing on ABC tonight.

5. Voters paying attention to the terribly out of touch things Mitt Romney says (like $374,000/year being “not very much” money.)

6. Romney’s offshore accounts & 15% tax rate (& refusal to release his tax returns.)

7. Attack ads like this one:
