The InsiderAdvantage poll of South Carolina likely Republican primary voters shows Newt Gingrich surging, coming within a statistical tie of Mitt Romney.

The poll of 726 registered voters was completed Wednesday night and offered the following results:

Romney -- 23 percent

Gingrich -- 21 percent

Santorum -- 14 percent

Paul -- 13 percent

Huntsman -- 7 percent

Perry -- 5 percent

"New Hampshire and Iowa have had little impact on the race in South Carolina," Matt Towery, chief pollster of InsiderAdvantage, told Newsmax.

"In this survey Ron Paul is substantially less significant, freeing up independent voters to vote for other candidates who they consider more viable," Towery said, adding, "Gingrich has moved ahead of Santorum in competitive advantage."

InsiderAdvantage's final poll has never missed the winner in a South Carolina race, according to Towery.
