Romney Leads Obama in FL, Gingrich Trails

A stark difference between Romney and Gingrich in how they match up against Obama in the state of Florida.

If you need anymore evidence what a difference a Mitt Romney nomination would mean versus a Newt Gingrich nomination both for the Presidential race and the down-ballot races, look no further than two polls out this morning that show the difference between how Romney fares against Barack Obama and how Gingrich fares against Obama in the state of Florida.  We will start with Quinnipiac University.

PRESIDENT - FLORIDA (Quinnipiac)

Mitt Romney (R) 45%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 45%

Barack Obama (D-inc) 50%
Newt Gingrich (R) 39%

Barack Obama (D-inc) 49%
Rick Santorum (R) 40%

Barack Obama (D-inc) 47%
Ron Paul (R) 39%

This poll was done January 19-23 among 1518 registered voters with a +/-2.5% margin of error.  Meanwhile, Suffolk University shows an even stronger position for Mitt Romney.

PRESIDENT - FLORIDA (Suffolk)
Mitt Romney (R) 47%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 42%

Barack Obama (D-inc) 49%
Newt Gingrich (R) 40%

This poll was done January 22-24 among 600 likely voters.  We all remember how important Florida was in 2000.  Something for Republican primary voters to think about when they vote next week in Florida, on April 3rd here in Maryland, or in their respective state primaries.
