Fresh TIME/CNN first-in-the-nation polls show Gingrich dominating Iowa, South Carolina and Florida — and within striking distance in New Hampshire.

IowaGingrich 33 — Romney 20
New HampshireRomney 35 — Gingrich 26
South CarolinaGingrich 43Romney 20
FloridaGingrich 48 — Romney 25

See the full results, including how the other candidates stack up, here.

Static analysis: Gingrich will be the Republican nominee. The Romney campaign will have to take him down. Hoping Ron Paul beats Newt in Iowa is not a plan. And the notion that Romney can lose Iowa and South Carolina and still win Florida does not, right now, look like a sensible proposition
