It appears as if New Gingrich's presidential campaign is wilting a bit in the heat of the Sunshine State. A string of new polls points to an advantage to Mitt Romney among likely voters leading up to the Florida Republican Primary, slated for Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Fifty delegates are at stake in the winner-take-all closed Republican primary. There are more than 4 million registered Republican voters in Florida.
In polls from Reuters, Sunshine State News, Quinnipiac, Rasmussen Reports, Insider Advantage and Monsmouth Survey, the former Massachusetts governor's lead over the former House Speaker ranges between 7 and 11 percentage points. Just a week ago, a poll by the Florida Chamber of Commerce indicated a dead heat, and surveys from Rasmussen and Insider Advantage gave the lead to Gingrich.
