South Carolina caucuses seem to be in flux. Gingrich is rapidly gaining on Mitt Romney, although the recent interview of his wife to ABC News, accusing him of infidelity, could actually cut his popularity.

South Carolina caucuses seem to be in flux. Gingrich is rapidly gaining on Mitt Romney, although the recent interview of his wife to ABC News, accusing him of infidelity, could actually cut his popularity. It’s still going to be a little rockier, as a fair amount of people who were going to vote for Rick Perry may follow their candidate and throw support behind Gingrich. Doug Kaplan, Managing Partner at Gravis Marketing, a public relations firm specializing in electoral campaigns, Jean Pelletier, Republican Party Caucuses organizer in Linn County, South Carolina, and Chris Haire, Managing Editor for the Charleston City Paper, as well as VOR correspondent and producer Carmen Russell-Sluchansky, who is down in South Carolina covering the caucuses, talk about the recent shifts in the presidential candidates’ field and what is still to come.
