PPP is out with its final numbers going into tomorrow’s South Carolina primary. It’s 37% Gingrich, 28% Romney, 16% Santorum, 14% Paul. That’s polling of 1540 voters over the last three days. In the calls they made tonight, Newt was up 40% to 26% over Romney. One night, especially a Friday night, is not much to go on. But it’s in line with the trend since Monday which has shown Gingrich rocketing into the lead.
Anything can happen. Polls can be wrong. But polls seldom give us such clear guidance on what to expect.
