It’s official: Newtmentum arrives in South Carolina!

385

Two new polls show Newt Gingrich ahead of Romney in South Carolina. The Real Clear Politics poll of polls still has Romney ahead though. (UPDATE: Newt is ahead of Mitt by 6 percent in Public Policy Polling’s just released survey).

Can Newt win on Saturday? I don’t know. In his favor, his polling surge is timed well. And Rick Perry is dropping out, which should be worth a few more percentage points.

The big question marks are ABC’s pending interview with his ex-wife Marianne, and of course tonight’s debate on CNN.

Watch this space.
