We’ve just released the latest (and likely final) TPM Poll Average of tomorrow’s South Carolina Republican presidential primary. It’s Gingrich 35.7%, Romney 26.4%, Santorum 13.9%, Paul 12.8%. This is includes the final polling from PPP that came out in the last hour. (Full Trend Chart after the jump.)
To put this in some perspective. On the January 15th, the date of the debate many credit with igniting his current run, Gingrich was at 21.1%. Tonight he’s at 35.7%. A move of almost 15 points in 5 days. Over the same period Romney has dropped around 6 points.
