Newt Gingrich has almost totally closed the gap between himself and Mitt Romney in national polls. According to Gallup, Gingrich has surged in the past week, erasing Romney's 23-point lead over the former speaker. Not only has Gingrich gained 14 points, but Romney has dropped 8. Republicans seem to be gravitating toward the former underdog, as the majority of Gingrich's new support has been from conservatives.
