New Florida poll by War Room Logistics: Romney 28%, Cain 24, Gingrich 10, Perry 9.
Going into the last debate, Rick Perry had been tied with Mitt Romney in Florida at 25% each, making this a remarkable 16 point drop for the Texas governor. Herman Cain, on the other hand, has seen his support grow by 19 percent. (For Decoder’s take on Cain’s recent rise and whether he really wants to be president, see here.)
If Perry gets crushed in Florida - with the Sunshine State primary now scheduled for January 31 - that makes the path to the nomination much, much tougher for him.
