On Super Tuesday tomorrow, Newt Gingrich is at least assured one victory in his home state of Georgia, where his support is about double that of Romney. But a big Gingrich win here may actually help Romney by keeping his foes divided.

The huge rapid swings taking place in the Republican primary this year are truly crazy. Only a week ago Newt Gingrich’s overall level of support shot up by double digits nationally in the states with upcoming primaries, South Carolina and Florida. This surge allowed Gingrich to win a significant victory in South Carolina and give him a big lead in the polling in Florida.
Yet in just a few days there are now signs that the momentum may swung quite sharply against Gingrich. Three new polls out today now give Mitt Romney a 7-8 point lead in Florida.

Newt Gingrich’s remarkable national surge over the past several days has also now put him in the lead in Florida a week before that primary. Only a week ago some polls had Mitt Romney leading in Florida by over 20 points. To blow such a huge lead so quickly has to shake any candidate and campaign, which must hope to turn things around with the February primary states.
