Polling indicates a broad consensus that Mitt Romney will finish comfortably ahead of Newt Gingrich in Florida primary voting (though not with 50 percent of the vote).
But, Nate Silver writes, the votes in other states in February still hold peril for Romney.
Plus, Newt now has The Herman Cain on his side.
If the battle continues through May, don't you think Gingrich will be an easy victor in Arkansas Republican primary voting? Mormon religion, political flip-floppery and sheer lack of personal chemistry against unreconstructed bombast? Or do I misunderestimate Arkansas Republican voters?
