One of the most accurate public opinion polls in America,Rasmussen Reports, released a shocker this morning concerning the upcoming Florida Republican Primary on January 31. Newt Gingrich now leads Mitt Romney by 9 points.
A mere 2 weeks ago Romney had garnered a 22-point lead over Gingrich in Florida, where the former Massachusetts Governor was expected to 'walk away with a big victory' and perhaps even 'wrap up the nomination.'
But in this highly volatile election year in which Republican voters appear to be having trouble making up their minds and in which there has been much waffling and switching back and forth between candidates, nothing is set in stone. Conventional wisdom has not worked. Pundits on all of the major news networks, including Fox, have been wrong.
