Gingrich has taken the momentum from his South Carolina win into the lead in Florida according to Insider Advantage.

The poll, taken last night, shows Gingrich with an 8 point lead.  He has 34% to Romney’s 26%.  Ron Paul, who has said he’s skipping Florida (except for tonight’s debate) is at 13% and Santorum is at 11%.[poll id=”1423″]

    It only took a week for poll numbers to be turned upside down in SC so there’s plenty of negative ad time for Mittens to strike back.  Wonder where the heck Ron Paul votes go?  It’s not like there’s another isolationist, anti-war R available.

    This would signal several things in my mind:

    1.  Romney’s base is also his ceiling, with not a lot of headroom for improvement.

    2.  Newt is as good a vessel as any to express GOP voter dissatisfaction with the GOP candidate choices.

    3.  Demogoguery trumps organization and money (as long as you can get free air time via debates and the 24/7 news cycle)

    4.  The Republican party would be irreparably split

    But I’m still gonna go with Mitt.  I don’t think the GOP is quite ready for self-destruction.

    And it’s coming straight from the man himself, not a super PAC:

    So much for keeping it positive, eh? I think I’m going to need one of those gallon-sized bags of popcorn.

      coming from outside the campaign.  And the robo-calls.  Remember the ones about McCain’s supposedly illegitimate supposedly bi-racial daughter? What could they do with a long term work place adulterous mistress/third wife who didn’t care if Newtie had an open marriage auditioning for the role of First Lady of the holier than thou social conservative right? And by the way, doesn’t this kind of thing seem like more of a threat to the holy institute of marriage than gays, more than happy to leave your hetero spouse alone, wanting to get married, too?

        Mormon church no longer holds polygamy as being “approved,” I’m just nasty and lazy enough to still get a kick out of the idea of a Mormon condemning a recent practitioner of multiple concubinery.

        It’s like what chance would David or Solomon have of being elected king these days?

      That was Gingrich. Which lasted as I recall about a week.

    when Newt was talking about Romney releasing his returns he made a comment to the effect that if he didn’t release them until after primaries the American people might be surprised to learn some things about Romney’s “character”. Rather than respond about taxes Mitt should have turned to him and said “I can’t believe you, of all people, would make insinuations about my character.” He should watch for a similar opportunity

    Florida is going to be a very strongly contested race. And both are willing to say anything about the other.

    And I think Gingrich will win in Florida. He’s striking some kind of fundamental tribal chord with the Republican voters.
