Polls: Romney Leading In Florida As Primary Begins
Polls released Saturday and Sunday show Mitt Romney holding a strong first in the Republican race leading into the Florida primary.
In The Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald/Tampa Bay Times poll released Saturday night, Romney led Gingrich 42 percent to 31 percent, while an NBC News/Marist poll released Sunday showed Romney leading 42 percent to 27 percent.
Romney has had strong organization in Florida and has been helped by the attack conservative media led on Newt Gingrich following his South Carolina win. Most pundits say that the Florida primary will be Gingrich’s last chance to strengthen his campaign.
Ron Paul has largely focused his attention outside of the Sunshine State in a strategic effort to pick up delegates in other States where his poll numbers look better.
“It’s just so expensive, and we figure, spending $9-$12 million in ads might not be worth it,” Paul campaign manager John Tate told Business Insider. “We’re spending our money more wisely….Spending half a million dollars to win all of North Dakota’s delegates is a lot more efficient than spending $12 million to maybe win some of Florida’s delegates.”
