Is Gingrich Surging?

What seems safer to conclude is that no candidate other than Mr. Romney or Mr. Gingrich is likely to win in South Carolina. If Rick Santorum had gotten a major boost by winning the support of evangelical groups over the weekend, for instance, we might have expected to see some clearer evidence of that by now. Mr. Santorum has moved ahead of Ron Paul and into third place in our forecasts, but his overall trajectory has been quite flat.

Update: Two new South Carolina polls put Gingrich ahead of Romney.
