MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Mitt Romney is in full control of the Republican field in the upcoming Florida primary, according to a new poll from War Room Logistics.

The poll found that Romney has opened a 10 point lead over his near GOP competitor, Newt Gingrich. Rick Santorum came in third and Ron Paul finished a distant fourth.

Still, there were just more than eight percent of voters who were still undecided about who to vote for Tuesday.

The War Room Logistics poll of registered Republicans found that a majority support the establishment of “limited, resort-style casinos” in Florida.

Overall, 51 percent support the casinos compared to 39 percent who oppose them.

The poll also looked at the Republican nomination fight to face incumbent Senator Bill Nelson.

According to the poll, Representative Connie Mack captured 33 percent of the vote, but a majority of 52.6 percent were undecided on the Republican Senate race.
