Since the Republican Presidential debate Monday night in Myrtle Beach, the political landscape in South Carolina has undergone a major shift that is moving in Newt Gingrich's favor. Newt's dazzling performance is now reflected in the polls with Rasmussen showing that he is now within 3 points of 'front-runner' Mitt Romney.
The Romney camp is fully aware of the shift against them. The campaign has launched an avalanche of negative ads, despite the candidate's personal statements in public denouncing them.
But Mitt, it seems, has his own problems brewing with a major voting block--gun rights activists, who are strong in South Carolina.
