Silk on Florida

Mark Silk, at his new blog site, looks at some of the recent polling data on the Florida primary which will be held tomorrow. Clearly, the glut of negative ads the Romney campaign has dumped on the Sunshine State is having its desired effect, but I think it is way too premature to count out Gingrich even if he does terribly in Florida. The key dynamic in this race for many months now has been this: The GOP electorate is not thrilled with any of their choices and as soon as someone looks close to winning, they spank the frontrunner at the next primary. This could go on for a very long time.

Silk also notes the persistence of the "Mormon Gap" among white evangelicals.
