GOP frontrunners Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are running neck and neck in the sunshine state, according to a new CNN/TIME/ORC poll.

Among likely voters in Florida’s Republican primary, Romney charts at 36 percent and Gingrich comes in at 34 percent.

Separate polls released in recent days have shown Gingrich leading the field with a wide margin following the former Speaker’s upset victory in South Carolina. The new poll indicates that Gingrich’s momentum may be subsiding.

Former Senator Rick Santorum comes in third with 11 percent and Texas Congressman Ron Paul trails at 9 percent.

The poll was conducted among 369 registered Republican voters between January 22nd and 24th.
