Florida Tightens, Newt Raising Money
So, you must be wondering if Newt is surging in Florida like he surged in South Carolina.
Romney leads with 36 percent among likely Republican primary voters in the new Quinnipiac poll, while Gingrich earns 34 percent. The poll, conducted January 19-23, has a margin of error of four points. Former Sen. Rick Santorum garnered 13 percent support while Rep. Ron Paul won 10 percent.
The former speaker has made big gains in Florida in just the past few weeks. In an earlier Quinnipiac poll released out of Florida on January 9, Romney led Gingrich 36 percent to 24 percent. A number of other polls showed Romney leading by double digits in Florida as recently as last week.
