I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Republicans In Florida All Tied Up

With two weeks to go the Republican race in Florida, the last battleground before Super Tuesday is closer than it’s ever been:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds four candidates essentially tied for the lead in Florida’s Republican Presidential Primary. It’s McCain 19%, Giuliani 18%, Romney 18%, and Huckabee 17%. Fred Thompson is a few points off the pace at 11% while Ron Paul is a distant sixth with support from 5% of Likely Primary Voters.

The race in Florida is very fluid. Just 45% of Likely Primary Voters say they are “certain” to vote for the candidate they currently support. Another 45% say they could change their mind while 10% do not even have a first choice.

Giuliani enjoys the most solid support—63% of his voters are “certain” they will vote for him. Fifty-five percent (55%) of Romney’s voters are that certain along with 42% of McCain fans and 41% of those who support Huckabee. Just 9% of Giuliani voters say there is a “good chance” they could change their mind. That figure ranges from 16% to 18% for the other three top candidates in Florida.

This can, and will, change before January 29th, but Florida is a clear reflection of the fact that the Republican race is incredibly fluid right now.
