The CNN/Time poll in Georgia shows Gingrich leading Romney by a 23-point margin (47 percent to 24 percent) followed by Santorum (15 percent) and Paul (9 percent). That margin is slightly wider than the current estimate from HuffPost Pollster's Georgia chart, which shows Gingrich leading Romney by more than 20 percentage points (44.3 percent to 23.5 percent), followed by Santorum (17.6 percent) and Paul (7.7 percent). The Georgia chart is based on 22 surveys in all, including eight completed within the past week.
The Gingrich campaign has experienced dramatic ups and downs over the course of the primary election season. Since the former House Speaker's victory in the South Carolina primary in January, the presidential contender has struggled to wage a competitive campaign in more recent contests.
HuffPost's Jon Ward and Sam Stein report:
One week from today, Alabama and Mississippi will hold primaries. If Santorum wins Ohio and does well in the South on Super Tuesday, he could be primed to sweep two more big wins there. Conversely, it is conceivable that if Santorum falters and Gingrich does well in the southern states today, he could follow that up with wins in Alabama and Mississippi, and the GOP could be in for yet another resurgence by the former House speaker.
Ten states are holding primary and caucus contests on Super Tuesday, including: Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.
