If they air this interview of Gingrich's ex-wife, Gingrich will probably GO WAY DOWN IN THE POLLS AS HE SHOULD. It is better for America to find out now rather than later when the Democrats would use this story to bring him down (should he win the nomination).

ATLANTA -- The seesaw Republican primary has tipped again in a poll conducted Wednesday night, giving Newt Gingrich the lead in the South Carolina primary.
Gingrich reversed the momentum of Mitt Romney who had an expanding lead in the same poll Sunday night.
Gingrich’s 32 percent to Romney’s 29 puts the two inside the poll’s 3.8 percent margin of error, but the 11-point lead Romney held in the Sunday evening survey has evaporated. And Romney’s strength had been building after wins in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.
The polls were conducted by InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research. Wednesday’s was conducted for the Augusta Chronicle and the Savannah Morning News of 718 registered voters who said they were voting in Saturday’s GOP primary.
Ron Paul is in third place with 15 percent, followed by Rick Santorum’s 11 and Rick Perry’s 3. Seven percent remain undecided and are unlikely to vote while 3 percent favor some other candidate not listed as a choice.
Gingrich, who represented neighboring Georgia in Congress for two decades and rose to become House speaker, took support from Santorum and Perry to pass Romney, according to pollster Matt Towery, InsiderAdvantage CEO. Gingrich captured the lead, Towery said, through his performance in Monday night’s televised debate that included a standing ovation from the live audience in response to his defense of conservatism.
“To come back this much, this quickly, is the debates,” Towery said.
The candidates debate again Thursday night, which will give Gingrich a chance to cement his lead and Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, to redeem himself.
