    Election 2012: South Carolina Republican Primary (Romney 27%, Santorum 24%)
    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 01/06/2012 | Staff


    What a difference a caucus makes. Rick Santorum who two months ago had one percent (1%) support among likely South Carolina Republican Primary voters now is running a close second there with 24% of the vote.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the Palmetto State finds former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney still in the lead, earning 27% support from likely GOP Primary Voters, up from 23% in early November. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is in third with 18% of the vote, followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul at 11%.

    Bringing up the rear are Texas Governor Rick Perry with five percent (5%) and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman at two percent (2%). Another two percent (2%) of these likely primary voters like some other candidate, and 11% remain undecided

    Shucks, Romney is breaking 25% again. Not really good for the people who claim he can't break 25%. And in South Carolina, a state Romney shouldn't be doing well.

    And yes, Santorum's rise just shows you how dynamic and useless polling is. Should be interesting to see who actually comes out on top when we actually get to South Carolina.

    BTW I wouldnt be surprised if Newt did everything he could to sabatoge Romney there, including throwing his support back Santorum if thats the way the polls are treading. Nothing wrong with that.
