While the last few days of polling show Mr. Romney catching up to Mr. Gingrich nationally, again; it is a bit puzzling why Mr. Gingrich leads at all. After all, Mr. Romney won both Florida debates unlike the South Carolina debates. So it short, at least as of yet, the Florida debates did not move national numbers as much and as fast as the South Carolina debates. However, that could change in the days to come. While the main contest (or dog fight to be a bit more blunt) in between Mr. Romney and Mr. Gingrich, ever since Christmas, there has been a minor dog fight below the radar between Mr. Santorum and Dr. Paul. Last week, radio pundit started to mention this contest below the radar and both non-charismatic candidates were able to at least throw some punches. While it does not matter who comes in third place, the trick for both Mr. Romney and Mr. Gingrich is to either snag Santorum/Paul voters or make the other guy lose a bit of support to the other guy. If the national contest does stay close, it will be interesting and important as to how the Santorum/Paul voters affect the overall contest eventually. No doubt Mr. Romney’s win today will give him some momentum, but how much and how long will it last? I have to agree with Ras this contest will not be over soon, although, Mr. Romney will regain the advantage after tonight.
