Florida Poll: Romney maintains lead

Mitt Romney 35
John McCain 28
Mike Huckabee 13
Rudy Giuliani 12
Ron Paul 5

Mitt Romney has opened up a seven point in Florida, based largely on support he has picked up in the last week. 40% of respondents said they made up their mind either over the weekend or in the last week. Romney has a 47-28 advantage among folks who said they decided who to vote for in the last week, and a 36-26 lead with people who decided over the weekend.

Romney also has a good amount of support in the bank, regardless of what happens in tomorrow's voting. His lead over McCain is 39-30 among the 25% of folks polled who said they had already voted.

When PPP polled Florida last week, 34% of respondents said they supported either Mike Huckabee or Rudy Giuliani. That is down to 25% now, which is an indication that voters who don't think either of those candidates is viable are deciding instead to vote for either Romney or McCain- but more of them are breaking toward Romney.

Is there any indication that Thompson supporters are breaking toward Romney in greater numbers? Is there “Who is your second choice?” data prior to Thompson’s exit? As a Romney supporter – Thompson was my second choice. We welcome Thompson supporters with the same warmth I’m sure we would have felt if situations were reversed.
