Skip to comments.That Gingrich Bounce in Florida That Everyone Expected? Itís Happened! (Mild Barf Alert)

Two new Florida primary polls, the first since Newt Gingrich's deeply, profoundly impressive victory in South Carolina on Saturday, have now been released, and it appears that the bounce everyone thought he would receive has materialized as expected. An Insider Advantage poll has Gingrich leading Mitt Romney 34 percent to 26 percent, while a Rasmussen poll has Gingrich up 41 percent to 32 percent. Meanwhile, PPP has also tweeted out much tighter (preliminary) numbers from its polling efforts in the Sunshine and Meth and Old People State: Gingrich and Romney are separated by just two voters after polling 600 people. And what about Rick Santorum and Ron Paul? Nobody cares!
While those polls (aside from PPP) show Gingrich with a commanding lead, Rasmussen reports that 41 percent of Florida voters could still change their minds, or haven't decided whom to support yet. That's a big chunk of the electorate that's still up for grabs. We're sure many of them will flock to whichever candidate can come up with the pithiest applause lines in the debates tonight and Thursday!

They just don’t get it.
This guy must have written this to amuse his fellow New Yorkers rather than from any serious journalistic effort.
Two simple reasons for Newt’s SC victory:
#1 The people loathe Obama and how he has wrecked our country
#2 The people loathe the main stream media for protecting Obama and the Leftists.
And Newt articulates this loathing better than anyone
Nothing more; nothing less than this
I think a lot of people were convinced that only Mitt could win. When Newt came out with his guns blazing many of them reconsidered.
