Romney pulling ahead in Florida

Sad. It would have been fun to watch Gingrich really muck things up. Via Slate:

Mitt Romney widened his lead in Florida over the weekend as the last fumes from Newt Gingrich’s South Carolina momentum dissipated in the Sunshine State.

According to Reuters, Romney’s lead had grown to 12 percentage points as of Sunday. Even more striking is Newt’s decline in the three-day Reuters poll’s hypothetical head-to-head between the two front-runners: On Friday, Gingrich and Romney were two percentage points apart, with Romney barely leading. On Saturday, the gap was eight percentage points. On Sunday, 11.

Other polls released over the weekend confirm Romney’s widening lead.
