    How much of a lead did the polls say Romney had in SC a week ago?

    There's a problem in FLORIDA--that is going to be very difficult for Newt to overcome. They mailed out their mail-in ballots about 2 weeks ago--and according to many--200K of those ballots have already been returned--and most likely prior to this huge S. Carolina win--and the debates last week. And we all know that Romney has been hitting this state hard with negative adds for at least the last month.

    IOW--Newt Gingrich will have a lot of ground he needs to make up in Florida--and we can only hope--that many of those Florida voters held onto their ballots along with their decisions.

    But yes--I would love to see Newt Gingrich win Florida--but I just don't expect it--because of their early voting procedures.

    But who knows--MIRACLES can happen--it sure did in S. Carolina on Saturday.

    Early voting procedures in Florida would be the reason Newt Gingrich wouldn't win. These ballots went out a couple of weeks ago--prior to the S. Carolina win and the debates last week--plus Romney has been hitting this state hard with negative ads for at least the last month.

    However, if Floridians held onto their ballots Newt may be able to pull this one out.

    No--it's this that matters--and what put Newt Gingrich back into this race with a huge win in S. Carolina. This kind of performance during a debate will get you 18 points & more within a week.
