This poll and others like it may explain why Romney announced he is going on the air with ads in Florida. It may also have something to do with the fact Thompson starts a three day visit there. Despite Romney’s lead in Iowa and NH(although there has arguably been some narrowing of late), he continues to poll poorly in the next round of states including South Carolina and Florida. Revealing that he does not entirely buy into the notion that the sheer momentum of Iowa and NH wins will sweep him to victory, he is looking to bolster his numbers in these other states. I’m expecting to see more ads and more visits by Romney in Florida. This is why campaigns get very tricky –each dollar and each visit spent in one state takes away from another stateï¿½so each campaign has to be smart (or lucky) to maximize their resources in the places it will do the most good and avoid overspending where it is not necessary or where it is hopeless.
