Poll: Romney now holds lead in Florida

Whatever momentum that Newt Gingrich had after his big win in South Carolina seems to be eroding, with new polling in Florida showing Mitt Romney on top by eight points.

The latest Public Policy Polling Florida poll has Romney at 40 percent and Gingrich at 32 percent. On Tuesday, PPP had Gingrich at 38 percent and Romney at 33 percent.

The most recent poll has Rick Santorum a distant third at 15 percent and Ron Paul further back in fourth at 9 percent.

Inside the numbers – it appears that a wave of negative attacks on Gingrich have taken their toll. Gingrich’s net favorability has declined 13 points since Tuesday (from +23 to +10) as Romney’s has actually improved slightly (from +31 to +33).
