Insider Advantage Poll Shows Gingrich Leading Romney

GOP Front Runner Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are in a virtual tie in South Carolina, according to an Insider Advantage poll conducted on Wednesday night.  The poll also indicates that Gingrich is garnering votes from Rick Santorum

and Rick Perry.  The poll was taken ahead of the news that Texas Governor Rick Perry online viagra will withdraw from the contest and endorse Newt Gingrich.

Insider Advantage Poll Results:

Gingrich     32
Romney     29
Santorum   11
Perry             3

Santorum and Perry had 16% and 6% respectively prior to this poll.   It is not clear yet how Perry’s withdrawal will influence the race, but it is becoming incrasingly apparent that the race will be between the establishment pick Mitt Romney and former Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich captured the imagination of voters with his comment that he will not look to merely bloody Obama’s nose, but but that he “will knock Obama out”.

ABC News apparently has an interview with Gingrich’s ex wife Marianne, which ABC has decided not to release until Monday, after all the votes are counted in the South Carolina primary.  Despite the Speaker’s surge there are still a lot of variables in this race.   It is clear though that Gingrich has a good probability of defeating Mitt Romney in South Carolina.   After South Carolina it comes down to money and organization.

Will the Speaker be able to muster the organization and money to take on a well organized Romney campaign?
