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

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(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%. Guess what? That 23-point spread has now disappeared. The new nationwide Gallup numbers: Romney 29% to Gingrich’s 28%. 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.

BLITZER’S BLOG: Bad blood could impact Republican ticket

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) - And now there are four Republican presidential candidates left in the contest.

They were all on the stage Thursday night at the tough CNN debate in South Carolina.

One of them will almost certainly face President Barack Obama in November. There is still a tiny chance no one will emerge with enough delegates to wrap things up. I suppose, at least theoretically, there could be a brokered convention in Tampa, Florida, at the end of August.
