Romney Polling Spike In South Carolina Breaks Glass Ceiling
The rap on Mitt Romney in both national surveys and states beyond just his home geo base in NH is that he cannot poke through approximately 25% in this large multi-candidate.
While just one survey, the new CNN/Time/ORC South Carolina poll puts Romney at 37% followed by Santorum at 18%.
Psychologically, if anything, this data portends good news as the sheer weight of the NH, SC, FL gauntlet bares down on the shrinking GOP field.
While NH is where Romney needs to meet his expectations, and where the focus on the deluge of polls are at the moment, this new little polling tidbit from South Carolina is as revealing as it is likely prescient of where things could be in just several weeks: over and done with.
