InsiderAdvantage Poll: Gingrich Surging, Race ‘Tighter Than Expected’

A new InsiderAdvantage poll conducted Sunday night of likely Republican voters in the state of Florida shows a significant surge for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The poll has former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leading with 36 percent of voters, followed by Gingrich at 31 percent.

The Sunday results of 646 likely GOP voters are as follows:

Romney 36 percent
Gingrich 31 percent
Santorum 12 percent
Paul 12 percent
Other/Undecided 9 percent

“The race will be tighter than expected,” Matt Towery, chief pollster of InsiderAdvantage told Newsmax.

Towery noted that his poll showed a surge for Romney on Wednesday, with him leading Gingrich by 8 points. The InsiderAdvantage poll was among the first to show Romney’s resurgence after his dismal showing in the S. Carolina primary.

The InsiderAdvantage poll was also the first to show Gingrich’s rise in S. Carolina and accurately forecast his win there.

“The trend is favoring Gingrich,” Towery said, noting that while Romney’s lead was still outside the margin of error of 3.8 percent, “It’s not by much.”

Towery said Gingrich is doing “substantially better” with men than Romney, 38 to 28, but the former House Speaker still faces a “gender gap,” as women are still favoring Romney.

“Men are moving in droves to Gingrich and away from Romney,” Towery said.

If Newt pulls out a win in Florida the fit will hit the Shan.

This is starting to remind me of the movie Jeepers Creepers, where the “good guys” were so stupid I began to root for the monster.

“Hey sis, I think that guy was dumping dead bodies into a pipe. Let’s go back and check.”

    Hmm, I’m usually for the monsters in scary movies. Maybe I should stop with the IV of Apple products. 🙂

    To be fair, the monster in Jeepers Creepers was the only cool thing about that movie.

    I have a problem with this kind of teaching.

    I do not care what the teacher’s politics are. They are supposed to teach a subject. If it is government then both sides are to be taught and debated. That is how I was taught and it made me more aware of many things

    Sarah Palin has just urged Florida voters to vote for Newt. We’ll see if she has any influence. If she does, we’ll also see how the media ignores her.
