January 16th Fox News/Wall Street Journal GOP Presidential Candidate Debate

At 9pm Eastern on Monday, Fox News will be hosting the next Republican Presidential Candidate Debate.

Mitt Romney has strengthened his position in the polls since winning in New Hampshire and is set to pull off a win in socially conservative South Carolina despite the religious Family Research Council’s support of Rick Santorum. Super PAC ads vilifying his time at Bain Capitol have both helped and hurt Romney’s campaign as a recent poll showed that voters are split over whether his time with the venture capitol firm would make them more or less likely to vote for him.

Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the race after a disappointing finish in the granite state despite focusing all of his efforts there.

Newt Gingrich and Santorum may be switching places according to a recent Fox News poll. In nationwide surveys, Santorum has pushed into second while Newt has dropped to  third. Ron Paul is holding on to fourth with Rick Perry bringing up the rear.

Tonight’s debate will be a key point for Rick Santorum’s campaign. Anti-capitalist rhetoric coming from Gingrich and Perry the last week has left Santorum an opening to establish himself as the Conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.

Ron Paul is holding on to his support from die hard Paul followers and some moderates, but his campaign is struggling to grow a base due to his foreign policy stances and ineffective messaging.

Who will be at the debate:

Bret Baier of Fox News and the Wall Street Journal’s Gerald Seib will moderate the debate.
