South Carolina is Competitive

Political Wire has learned that two polls currently in the field -- from Public Policy Polling and American Research Group -- are both finding the South Carolina primary shaping up to be a tight race between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

An InsiderAdvantage survey released earlier today also shows a very close contest.

Larry Sabato: "We've all discovered in this strange presidential cycle that 10 days -- the time between New Hampshire and South Carolina -- is more than enough time for a candidate to rise or crater. No one interested in politics should take his or her eyes off the prize for a moment. We doubt the super-organized Romney forces are making that mistake, which is why their candidate has a real chance to end the effective battle for the nomination quickly."
