First, we’ve got the Gallup Daily Tracking Poll, which shows Gingrich’s lead over Mitt Romney nearly gone:

Added to that, we have this intriguing tweet from Public Policy Polling, which have several polls in the field this weekend:

We’ll obviously have to wait until final numbers come out, and to see if other polls confirm what they’re picking up, but if nothing else this would seem to indicate that the negative attacks against Newt have worked quite effectively and are likely to continue right up until the voting starts.
