Romney pulling ahead in latest Florida Q pollby George Bennett | January 27th, 2012
A Quinnipiac University poll conducted Tuesday through Thursday shows Mitt Romney pulling ahead of Newt Gingrich in advance of Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary.
Romney holds a 38-to-29 percent lead over Gingrich, turning back a Gingrich surge after his victory in Saturday’s South Carolina primary. The new poll finds Ron Paul at 14 percent and Rick Santorum at 12 percent.
Quinnipiac’s last poll showed a statistical tie between Romney and Gingrich, with Gingrich leading 40-34 among voters surveyed after the South Carolina vote.
The new survey of 580 likely GOP primary voters has a 4.1 percent margin of error. Check out the complete poll here.
