Mitt Romney has a 43-29 percent lead over Newt Gingrich among Republican likely voters in Florida, although a stunning tally of 24 percent say they might change their minds by the time they vote there on Tuesday, according to a Quinnipiac University poll
released today. Seven percent remain undecided on the eve of the nation’s first big-state presidential primary.
Romney’s tally edges up slightly from the 38-29 percent Romney lead in a Jan. 27 poll from the independent Quinnipiac University.
In the new Jan 27-29 survey of 539 Republican likely primary voters, self-described conservatives go to Romney 40-31 percent. He gets 38 percent of white evangelical Christians to Gingrich’s 33 percent and wins 40 percent of tea party members to Gingrich’s 35 percent.
Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum each have 11 percent of likely primary voters.
“Gov. Mitt Romney is headed toward a double-digit victory that touches all the GOP bases,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Romney carries every part of the GOP coalition, including the parts central to Gingrich – self-described conservatives, white evangelical Christians and tea party supporters. If this margin holds up tomorrow, it’s hard to see where Gingrich goes from here.”
