Team Rudy is pleased by a new poll showing him leading by 11 points nationally. The Rudy folks have been maintaining a very constant response to the December poll news: we’ve been through the booms before, the second place guy has shifted but we are still on top. This is a little evidence to bolster that line at a time when there is much second and third and fourth guessing about the “Florida to February 5” strategy. (Hey, if Romney loses Iowa big he’ll also be saying it doesn’t matter.) More importantly, Florida at least to date, has closely followed national poll numbers( makes sense since it’s a diverse state with losts of transplants from other places) so they will be hoping this is a sign the Sunshine state will hold firm.
