And Mitt Romney are tied I believe that -- -- -- 4% for Romney 22%.
For Herman Cain so Romney and Gingrich tied for first within the margin of error.
That's after the Republican presidential candidates took a break from blasting each other at this weekend's big foreign policy debate in South Carolina.
And setting their sights on President Obama instead.
Mitt Romney warning that the president's stance in on Iran in particular could be putting America at risk.
The president should have built credible.
Threat of military action and made it very clear that the United States of America it is willing in the final analysis if necessary to take military action to keep Iran from having a nuclear weapons -- one thing you can now.
And that is if we re elect Barack Obama Iran will have a nuclear weapons.
And if we elect Mitt Romney if you elect me as -- -- president they will not have a nuclear -- Larry -- director of center at the center for politics University of Virginia Larry.
It was an interesting dynamic because that we have heard so much of the Republicans -- at one another Perry and Romney.
Back -- Pawlenty was there -- Bachmann Santorum you name it.
And this Saturday night's debate seemed uniquely focused on one person and that was Barack Obama Smart of these candidates.
Very Smart particularly in foreign policy -- and because.
That's an advantage for the incumbent president is always this because he can say I've been there.
I've taken those 3 AM telephone calls night after night for the four years of my term.
And the challenger always has to contend with that perception among the electorate so I think it was good for the Republicans in the sense that.
Certainly Republicans and others who were -- -- Got a sense of where they stand on foreign policy this will continue with other debates on foreign policy and the eventual nominee will be in a better position.
Come the fall to stand toe to toe with President Obama on issues they may not have dealt -- -- as we get this news from this new poll that Gingrich and Romney are now running neck and neck at least according to this -- an -- neck and neck.
We're seeing a little bit more percolate up from Gingrich attacking Romney on the campaign trail something he's been -- to do with the debates is almost like you know the tale of two -- What -- do -- the -- did you what did he do behind the debate stage and Major Garrett former White House correspondent for Fox News now at the National Journal.
Questioned him about it watch this.
speaker you said yesterday that governor Romney is a competent manager.
You said you were unsure if he was really capable of changing Washington you said you -- the change agent.
Based on the -- of this campaign and perhaps what you heard tonight would you care to evaluate governor Romney's ability to think outside the box and -- United States national security or foreign policy productions.
National radio show.
-- brought up yesterday because of the national leadership I think he brings up things these and that's the reason we're here tonight talking the American people -- like every single one of us is better than Barack Obama and that's.
You could say Larry that discipline I mean he just won't go there and the debate that.
-- -- like you're a tale of two -- because that is what each candidate smartly should do and right now Gingrich and Romney are doing it better than the others.
If you're going to make distinctions between yourself and other candidates don't do it in the national debate.
I think Gingrich has sensed correctly that Republicans want they are party to be unified that they know it's going to be tough.
To defeat President Obama next November it's always tough to beat incumbent president if -- unified you have a better chance.
More more we're seeing Gingrich moving up in the polls we are seeing mr.
-- moved down in the polls since -- sexual harassment allegations came out this latest poll suggests he is now down.
To 14% support which is down eleven points since last month.
How do you see this panning out in terms of Cain Gingrich Romney.
Obviously Romney has had a problem in getting over thirty -- have been a few holes where he's gotten over thirty.
His chances of winning depend on keeping all of these people afloat.
Continuing this whack a mole game where.
One of challenger to Romney will move up and another challenger moves down and up and down and up and down it's gone with Bachmann it's gone with -- it's gone with.
With that -- now it's Gingrich's turn but the key is to keep them all in the race to keep the anti Romney vote.
