Fla poll: Romney 28%, Cain 24, Gingrich 10, Perry 9
Debates matter. So did Florida’s straw poll. Just ask two guys: Herman Cain and Rick Perry.
Cain is now running in second place in Florida now that his support surged nearly 19 percentage points after last month’s Republican Party of Florida’s Presidency 5 debate and straw poll, according to a survey of likely Florida voters conducted by Gainesville-based War Room Logistics, which typically polls for Republicans.
Meantime, Perry’s support plummeted nearly 16 percentage points.
Perry had been tied as a Florida frontrunner with Mitt Romney at about 25 percent on Sept. 20, dropped to third/fourth place with 9 percent of the vote where he’s statistically tied with Newt Gingrich (10 percent).
The GOP field is so volatile that it’s impossible to figure out who will be the nominee. What’s amazing is that the GOP can’t find a solid candidate to go against President Obama, especially given the economy and Obama’s very weak poll numbers.
