A new Rasmussen survey in South Carolina finds Mitt Romney just edging Rick Santorum in the GOP presidential race, 27% to 24%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 18%, Ron Paul at 11%, Rick Perry at 5% and Jon Huntsman at 2%.

“Things remain fluid in South Carolina, however, with nearly half the state’s primary voters (48%) saying they still could change their minds. Just 41% are certain already of how they will vote. Those certain of their vote include 62% of Paul’s supporters, 51% of Perry’s backers, 50% of Romney voters. Just 43% of Santorum voters and 36% of Gingrich supporters are locked in at this point.”
