Q Poll: Mitt Romney 36%, Newt Gingrich 34% in FL -- but Gingrich up 6 among likely voters after SC primary
Surging since his South Carolina Republican presidential primary win, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich wipes out a 12-point lead by Mitt Romney to tie the former Massachusetts governor in Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University poll release today. The final tally is 36 percent for Romney to 34 percent for Gingrich among likely voters in the Florida Republican presidential primary, but Gingrich gets 40 percent to 34 percent for Romney among likely voters surveyed after the South Carolina primary. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum receives 13 percent to 10 percent for Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.
I really hope Newt can blow Mittens out of the water in FL! Not just win, but win decisevely so we can watch Britt Hume and Karl Tokyo Rove have strokes trying to explain it away.
I’m not buying this at all.
Look at the crowds for instance RINO is getting a couple of hundred yesterday Newt is getting 4,000 and I know of no one around here who wants RINO not one person
I fully expect to see all the long knives out in the so-called conservative media and by the GOP establishment types to do all they can to stop Newt. The more I see this stuff, the more it makes me want to vote for Newt!
Did you read it beyond the header? It shows Newt winning among those surveyed after SC by 6, which is close to other polls. The reason Mitt was winning over all was that it was a long poll and surveyed a lot of folks before SC.
Newt will rise after Mitt announced Charlie RINO Crist as his Florida campaign manager.
“Nobody believes polls” Newt in last debate and everybody agreed. The “polls” will say Romney is winning all the way up to the last 2nd then will switch to try and save face.
Yesterday Rasmussen had Newt with a big lead
Fox and Friends has Newt on now and t hey are really playing up that poll as proof that he’s taken the lead again! BS is right!
What worries me is the stupid early voting. I think Newt needs to win by at least 5 to offset it.
Thought I read that it was one of Crist's surrogates who worked on his campaign, not Charlie himself.
In other words, Newt is ahead 40 to 34 in Florida.
Gingrich’s ex-wife—and the Elite Media’s gleeful and transparent attempt to use her interview for their own propaganda purposes—gave Gingrich a powerful boost.
Fox simply is no longer fair and balanced! This has been developing for several years, no I am not breaking any news.

Everybody has a big but. Q poll, can we talk about your big but?
I can’t imagine too many people voted early who were not already set on who they were voting. The early voters are likely the committed voting base. I could be wrong, but in the primaries, I can’t imagine the early voting is filled with people undecided or likely to switch ther choice.
Show me the history of Quinnipiac’s accuracy. You’ll note they tend to skew left every time.
Its should say “Gingrich up 6 among likely voters after SC primary” that are casting their votes right now.
