Romney's Sunshine State "Lead"

Can't find an average putting Romney at less than +6% over Gingrich, some have him at +12% so it looks like this one is down to how big/little the lead. Big lead, Romney might have leverage to at least get the headlines about him more than his oppenents with nothing to lose, at least ask nicely for them to step aside. Smaller lead, we still have a game here at least as far as headline chasers are concerned. Either way Gingrich and Santorum have little reason not to drag this out, but their credibility in doing so may evaporate tonight. What's amazing is how much it's costing "Mr. Most Electable" (?) and SuperPAC friends, how much energy the campaign is having to expend just to stay ahead of Newt Gingrich. Newt. Gingrich. Romney's not connecting.
While you're waiting for polls to close:
Gallup sizes up 6 months polling and finds swing state registered voters evenly split in an Obama/Romney matchup.
Also: Ron Paul.
FiveThirtyEight: Romney still vulnerable.
Historic partisan love/hate for Obama.
Romney the chameleon may be what's holding back the Newt. He's the closest candidate GOP voters have to "generic Republican" in a suit and tie.
Finally, not a poll, just cool: Physicists publish The Theory of F#@!ing Everything.
