BLITZER’S BLOG: The gloves will be off in Thursday’s debate

(CNN) – A week ago, the Gallup daily tracking poll of registered Republicans around the country had Mitt Romney at 37% with Newt Gingrich at only 14% percent. Guess what? That 23-point spread has now disappeared. The new nation-wide Gallup numbers: Romney 29% percent to Gingrich’s 28% percent. That’s a statistical tie well within the 3-point sampling error.

It only goes to show you how quickly political fortunes can change. Fresh from his double-digit victory over Romney in South Carolina, Gingrich now certainly has the political momentum going with him into Florida’s January 31 primary. He seems to be on a roll.

Five things we learned from Thursday's debate

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) – The four remaining Republican presidential candidates faced off Thursday for the second time in three days and two days ahead of South Carolina's pivotal primary.

Santorum tries to shoulder past Romney, Gingrich in debate

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) - Arguing that momentum was on his side after a delayed announcement of victory in Iowa, former Sen. Rick Santorum sought to weaken rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich with a series of direct attacks on the two front-runners in the last South Carolina debate ahead of the state's primary on Saturday.

Santorum charged both Romney and Gingrich would be weaker opponents against President Barack Obama, saying neither could draw a contrast with the incumbent over health care policy.
