Gallup: Romney and Gingrich Are Running Neck-and-Neck Nationally
3:33 PM, Dec 30, 2011 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
Mitt Romney leads Newt Gingrich by just 2 percentage points (26 to 24 percent) in Gallup’s most recent national polling (which extends through yesterday). That’s well within the 4-point margin of error. Ron Paul is a distant third, with 11 percent support, while all other GOP candidates are in single-digits: Rick Perry at 7 percent, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann at 5 percent apiece, and Jon Huntsman at 2 percent.
