    Gingrich holds clear lead in new South Carolina poll - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich may have pulled too far ahead in South Carolina for Mitt Romney to catch up, according to a poll of likely Republican voters in the Palmetto state released Friday.

    The former speaker has the lead with 32 percent in a new Clemson University poll, conducted January 18-19. Romney comes in second with 26 percent, while Rep. Ron Paul places third at 11 percent and former Sen. Rick Santorum places fourth with 9 percent. Twenty percent of voters remain undecided. The poll has a 4.73 percent margin of error.

    In a separate poll released Thursday by American Research Group (ARG), Gingrich and Romney were essentially tied, 33 percent to 32 percent for the former Massachusetts governor.

    Well, let's see how that "lead" holds out when people actually start voting.

    Was there something about the topic at the top of this section which says Gingrich Maintains 6 Point Lead in S.C. that made you feel it was necessary to start the umpteenth topic about this?

    6 points is barely out of the moe. It is not a clear lead especially when he was supposed to run away with the SC primary.

    Love the way you wingers claim victory and walk away tho.. :cuckoo:
