Gingrich Tops Romney in South Carolina and Nationally
In a lightning fast move, South Carolina and American voters have made a huge political statement. Gingrich will be the candidate that will take on GOP Establishment pick Mitt Romney.
The most recent InsiderAdvantage Poll is clear
The poll shows that Gingrich is draining support from both Santorum and Perry. This indicates that conservatives are realizing that the divided and fractured conservative vote is giving a victory to Establishment Moderate Mitt Romney.
Conservative voters both in South Carolina and across the nation are making the decision that Gingrich is the strongest debater and experienced conservative to defeat Romney and Obama. Gingrich is known for his toughness and political savvy, having forced former President Bill Clinton to accept strong Welfare Reform and three Balanced Budgets.
Also, Gingrich has made it clear that he will not look to merely bloody Obama's nose, but he amplified he "will knock Obama out".
This toughness, voters believe, is needed to defeat President Obama. Gingrich has asked the other conservative candidates to bow out, so conservatives can defeat moderate Romney. Texas Gov. Rick Perry has heeded that call and will declare at 11 AM, today, he will suspend his campaign.
Note: Rumors are swirling that Perry will also endorse Newt Gingrich.
