Romney Holds Small Lead in South Carolina

A new We Ask America poll in South Carolina shows Mitt Romney leading the GOP presidential field with 26%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 21%, Rick Santorum at 13%, Ron Paul at 8%, Rick Perry at 5% and John Hunstman at 4%. Another 22% are still undecided.

Analysis: "As we've seen in Iowa and as others have measured throughout the nation, Romney is increasingly being viewed among the GOP as the one who will prevail. True, if there's a surprise in New Hampshire, shifts can quickly occur in South Carolina, so we'll revisit here soon. But for now, Romney is hoping that tonight will finally tip over that domino that starts a chain reaction to victory."

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds Romney at 27%, Gingrich at 23%, Santorum at 18%, Ron Paul at 8%, Rick Perry at 7% and Jon Huntsman at 4%.
