Romney Regains Florida Lead

According to a new Quinnipiac University Poll, Mitt Romney is on track to beat Newt Gingrich in Florida’s Republican primary, a development that will help Romney bounce back from his embarrassing loss in South Carolina just six days ago.

According to a new Quinnipiac University Poll, Mitt Romney is on track to beat Newt Gingrich in Florida’s Republican primary, a development that will help Romney bounce back from his embarrassing loss in South Carolina just six days ago.

Romney currently leads Gingrich in the sunshine state 38 to 29 percent, a standing that is bolstered by his impressive performance in Thursday night’s GOP debate, the last in the state prior to Tuesday’s primary.

“With the debates now over, Gingrich will need some other way to reverse the tide that appears to be going against him,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

The poll found that Romney has had a rapid shift in support among men. In a poll conducted on January 25th, male voters favored Gingrich 37 to 33 percent. Now, the former Governor leads the demographic at 36 to 29 percent. Women have consistently preferred Romney over Gingrich with a steady 30 to 40 percent.

The poll was conducted January 24th through 26th among 580 likely Republican primary voters.
