Gingrich’s Lead Over Romney Vanishes
Whatever recent momentum Newt Gingrich had over Mitt Romney has disappeared.
According to the latest Gallup Poll data, the 11 point and higher leads Newt enjoyed has vanished, to where it's a statistical dead heat with Romney. While the Gallup information did not speculate as to why this has occured, most of the swing did not completely go to Romney; rather, much of it was spread out among Backman, Santorum, and Rick Perry, among others. Gingrich has 26%, Romney 25, followed by Backman, Perry, Santorum, and Huntsman with single digits in terms of poll support.
