Some Interesting Facts about the Florida Primary

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Romney had a lot to smile about last Tuesday in Florida.
Some key data from Florida's results that illustrates why the Obama campaign is worried about facing Mitt Romney in the general election:

  • Mitt had a broad base of support, winning among conservatives, Tea Party members, Evangelicals, women, men, and Hispanics.
  • With over 770,000 votes, Mitt received the most votes in Florida GOP Primary history.
  • The idea that Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are splitting the conservative vote was proved wrong -- again. Not only did Mitt win more support from conservatives and Tea Party supporters than either candidate, Mitt garnered more votes than both candidates combined.
  • Mitt won Hispanic voters, a key swing voting bloc in the general election, increasing his support of 14% in 2008 to 54% in Tuesday's results.
  • Every GOP candidate who has won Florida has gone on to win the nomination.

Florida will be an important battleground state in November. Mitt proved he's ready to compete against Barack Obama -- and win.
