During a Wednesday rally, he told an audience at Winthrop University in Rock Hill about an advertising campaign his team was planning to run against Obama.
"He said after he was inaugurated – we are going to play this on TV time and time again in our ads – he said that if he couldn't get this economy turned around in three years he'd be looking at a one term proposition," Romney said. "Well, we are here to collect all right?"
Many analysts believe a Romney win in South Carolina could effectively clinch the nomination for the former Massachusetts governor.
But a CNN/TIME/ORC poll released Wednesday showed Newt Gingrich gaining on Romney in South Carolina. Gingrich received 23% support, while 33% of respondents supported Romney.
