Political Wire reports 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.”
