Poll: Romney Has Double-Digit Lead In Fla.

MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – Mitt Romney has won Iowa, is projected to win New Hampshire, and based on the latest polling from Quinnipiac University, should easily win the biggest prize of the early primary season, Florida.

According to the Q-Poll, Romney captured 36 percent among likely Republican primary voters. He was followed by Newt Gingrich with 24 percent, Rick Santorum with 16 percent, and Ron Paul with 10 percent.

Still, there’s plenty of room for movement in the poll as 54 percent of those surveyed said they still may change their mind. A full 56 percent of those voters supporting Mitt Romney said they could change their vote by election day.

But there is good news for Romney in the poll, past the overall lead.

The Q-Poll found that Romney commanded the highest favorable ratings amongst conservative voters. He also had the highest ratings among evangelicals and commanded 72 percent favorable ratings from the Tea Party.

The primary season has been rough in the beginning for Romney, but a big win in New Hampshire, followed by a quick win in South Carolina could give Romney enough momentum to sweep Florida.

At that point, he would become the presumptive nominee as other candidates may realize they can’t keep up with his money and momentum.

Florida’s primary is set for January 31.

    I’m from Massachusetts, and believe me Romney wasn’t that great a governor. He’s all for the rich and powerful, so think twice before you vote this man in.
