Recent South Carolina Poll Shows Surge In Mitt Romney Supporters

Mitt Romney Up In South Carolina Polls

Just three short days ago the Mitt Romney campaign appeared to be collapsing in South Carolina with just a 2% lead over Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich but a new Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals that the millionaires lead has increased exponentially over the last several days.

According to the poll Romney is back on top with 37% of the vote, a 21-point lead over his nearest rivals Ron Paul and Rick Santorum. The new poll also shows Gingrich far behind in fourth with just 12% of the vote.

When specifically asked if Mitt Romney is “electable” against Barack Obama 46% of Republicans answered yes while 40% of Democrats also answered in the affirmative.

According to an Ipsos poller:

“In primary races things can change quickly, but it does look like Romney is in position to win South Carolina.”

According to ABC News Romney’s numbers have likely spiked after Newt Gingrinch attack ads against his time at Bain Capital backfired. In fact Newt was booed during a forum hosted by Mike Huckabee when he brought up Romney’s profiteering from Bain.

According to a Romney supporter:

“I think those attacks are misguided. The process of any economy has long been one of creative destruction.”

In the meantime Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert has released an attack ad of his own (or at least his Super PAC has) in which he calls Mitt Romney a capitalist and serial killer. Obviously Colbert’s ad unlike Newt was all in jest.

Here’s one example of a Newt Gingrich attack ad against Mitt Romney:

Do you think that attacks from Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are helping Romney gain support in South Carolina?

    Just more sheep for the culling. Wake up people! Ron Paul is the only one willing to address the real issues and actually fix the problems!

    What DOES Romney believe THIS week? Anyone know? Who donated last? That might provide a clue. The only candidate that can't be bought: Ron Paul. Ron Paul or write-in come Nov.

  3. Love Paul

    Ron Paul, a patriot, who has honorably served his country, defends both the constitution and civil liberties, and is for peace and prosperity. Dr. Paul has the wisdom, foresight, honesty and integrity to be president.

    Dr. Paul believes spending and deficits are destroying this country. Dr. Paul's budget plan would save $1 trillion in the first year. Besides the spending cuts, there are other issues of importance to voters. For conservatives, Dr. Paul scores an A+ on all of them: Second Amendment protection, pro-life record, right-to-work, pro-business, anti-tax, states' rights, you name it.

    Dr. Paul also believes America should have the strongest national defense on earth — which he believes begins with not trying to constantly police the earth. Right now, our government puts our best and bravest in harm's way on a regular basis for questionable reasons and with no discernible notion of victory. This is not supporting the troops. It's abusing them. Dr. Paul wants an end to this absurd, costly policy.

    The voters have declared Dr. Paul the alternative to the liberal, flip flopping Mitt Romney. The other candidates are simply irrelevant. In the New Hampshire Primary, Dr. Paul received more votes than all the supposed Anti-Romney (Santorum, Gingrich, and Perry) candidates combined.

    The question for Republican voters is not whether they can afford to vote for Dr. Paul – it's whether they can afford not to.

    America Needs Ron Paul.

    Santorum is the only one I trust to not starve us to death while reducing the budget. I'm a retired federal employee who did not sit on their but for 30 years. All the federal employees I knew did the work of 3 people because of all the cut backs. The Presidents always makes us suffer when he needs money. Now they are changing our healthcare benefit and our cost of living index so we suffer more. Our country is so far in debt that if they close down the entire federal government it wouldn't get us out. The problem with Civil Service is and always has been bad managers. The good old boy club still promotes their own. You must start at the top. GSA is a good example of that. I worked for the Department of Defense and believe me you work hard for them. I pay close to $500 a month out of my retirement check for my health insurance and the government is suppose to pay half as part of my retirement benefit. They recently advertised they pay 70%–bull more of Obama lies. I voted for him and I regret it. He is to inexperienced to get anything done. He has to rely on people he chose to work for him but if you are inexperienced how do you know who to pick for your cabinet. If you don't know how the government works, how can you change it. Romney is in the same situation. He has never been a Congressman or Senator he has never been inside. They will eat him alive just like Obama. Not all parts of the government are run like GSA don't let it leave a bad taste in your mouth about all government employees.
