Fresh off his convincing Super Tuesday win in his home state of Georgia, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich might be about to score another comeback, with two new polls out Friday showing the former House speaker with slight leads in both Alabama and Mississippi.
 
A Rasmussen Reports poll of 750 likely Republican primary voters shows Gingrich ahead with 30 percent support, followed closely by Rick Santorum at 29 percent, and Mitt Romney with 28 percent. 
 
Ron Paul got just 7 percent, while 6 percent were undecided.
 
In Mississippi, a poll by American Research Group Inc. finds Gingrich in the lead with 35 percent. Romney is in second place with 31 percent, while Santorum has 20 percent and Paul has 7 percent.
 
The American Research Group poll of 600 likely voters in the Mississippi Republican primary was conducted March 7-8 and has a margin or error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
 
The Rasmussen poll was carried out March 8 and also has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
