As late as last week, Florida looked like it was going to be a toss-up. No more. I’m calling this state for Mitt Romney by double digits. Newt Gingrich is acting like he knows this isn’t going to be pretty. Rick Santorum will finish third, buoyed by a solid debate performance and with his family in the news. Ron Paul will break into the double digits.
After his decisive win in South Carolina, Gingrich stormed out to a big lead in the Florida polls. The evaporation of that lead is the biggest setback yet in a campaign that has been filled with near-death experiences followed by death-defying stunts. What will Gingrich do for his next act? Romney beware: hell hath no fury like a Newt scorned.
