Gingrich Almost Overnight Surges Past Romney in Florida (w/Update on Rasmussen Poll)

Newt Gingrich
The last several polls have showed Mitt Romney with a double-digit lead in Florida.  Those polls showed leads of 22, 24, 26 and 15. 

Yesterday, a day after the South Carolina, Insider Advantage did a poll of the Sunshine State.  The result showed Newt Gingrich with an eight point lead over Romney.

It appears the non-Romney's are coalescing behind the former Speaker. That spells trouble for Romney. If the former Massachusetts Governor can't win Florida, where he is supremely organized and has money to compete in the state's several media markets, then his nomination becomes doubtful.  The nomination could be over pretty quickly, but over with Gingrich as the nominee rather than Romney.

UPDATE:  Rasmussen also released a poll today confirming the Gingrich surge. That poll shows Gingrich with a nine point lead, a 31 point swing from a previous poll just 11 days ago showing Romney with a 22 point lead.

Ron Paul says it is a marathon, not a sprint.

I hope America wakes up and realizes what an immoral scoundrel Gingrich really is.

How soon they forget that he left Congress in disgrace. He has not changed. Afterall, didn't he land on K street?

Gingrich is in this for his ego, not America. He will treat this country like he treated his former wives.

While I support Ron Paul, I also know at some point it's likely to be between Gingrich and Romney. In that case, the only choice is Gingrich. While Gingrich has issues that there is no doubt, Romney would be a complete disaster for everything you and I believe in.

Taxpayer lose. FSSA should not have been formed in the first place. Case management is a differcult art form which requires human interaction and trying to rely on software is tough. The Governor decision to go with IMB was based upon the recommendation of others wh should have know better.
