A recent poll of Republican voters in Louisiana shows that Rick Santorum has a double digit lead over both Gingrich and Mitt Romney But Gingrich says he won't let the latest poll numbers get him down.
"Let me just give y'all a very simple test. if you had to choose between increasing oil production in Louisiana and increasing it in Saudi Arabia, how many of you, raise your hand, how many of you pick Louisiana? how many of you would pick Saudi Arabia? there's not a single Obama supporter in the room. "
