Romney Leads in Florida Too

Romney Leads in Florida Too
A new Quinnipiac poll in Florida finds Mitt Romney leading the GOP presidential race with 36%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 24%, Rick Santorum at 16%, Ron Paul at 10%, Rick Perry at 5% and Jon Huntsman at 2%.

Said pollster Peter Brown: “With more than half of voters saying they might change their minds and more than 50 percent of them backing candidates perceived as more conservative, Romney could be vulnerable if those voters settle on one candidate.”

More Independents Than Ever Before
Gallup finds that a record-high 40% of Americans identified as political independents in 2011, while 31% said they were Democrats and 27% said they were Republicans.

How Quickly Can Romney Wrap it Up?
Politico: “It’s hard to find anyone in the campaigns or the media who think Romney won’t win the nomination — if not this month, soon. A big reason is the scenarios for unexpected change seem so far-fetched… Romney is protected against these scenarios in part because of lessons he learned from the Bush and Obama campaigns: a rigid headquarters structure, a disciplined message and dogged preparation for months of primaries.”

Wisconsin Democrats Play Expectations Game
The Hotline: “The expectations game is in full swing in Wisconsin. Democrats announced this week that they wouldn’t provide any more updates on the number of signatures collected for the recall drive against GOP Gov. Scott Walker before the Jan. 17 deadline. But don’t assume the silence means recall organizers fear they might fall short in their efforts. Insiders from both sides of the aisle in Madison are confident Walker will face a recall election. By not giving away their current count, Democrats can preserve the wow factor for the unveiling of their ultimate total — and prevent opponents from leaking outlandish figures in an attempt to set impossible expectations.”
