Gingrich surging in Florida: Quinnipiac poll

| No Comments

White House hopeful Newt Gingrich is surging in Florida ahead of the Jan. 31 primary, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. The GOP rivals face off in a CNN debate Thursday night in Jacksonville.

From Quinnipiac: "Surging since his South Carolina Republican presidential primary win, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich wipes out a 12-point lead by Mitt Romney to tie the former Massachusetts governor in Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University poll release today. The final tally is 36 percent for Romney to 34 percent for Gingrich among likely voters in the Florida Republican presidential primary, but Gingrich gets 40 percent to 34 percent for Romney among likely voters surveyed after the South Carolina primary.

"Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum receives 13 percent to 10 percent for Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul."
