A new poll released as South Carolinians are voting in their Republican primary shows Newt Gingrich's weeklong surge taking him past Mitt Romney into a substantial lead among likely voters in the Palmetto State.
The American Research Group poll, conducted Thursday and Friday, shows Gingrich leading Romney 40% to 26%. ARG's last poll, released Thursday, showed a virtual tie with Gingrich at 33% and Romney at 32%.
Two weeks ago, Romney's campaign was looking at two wins under its belt, a big lead in South Carolina, a bigger lead in Florida and the possibility of a clear path to the Republican presidential nomination.
