Romney, Santorum, and Obama Tied in Florida

According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are both statistically tied with Barack Obama in Florida. The survey, which considers a 3 percentage-point difference within the margin of error, found that when hypothetically matched up against the president, 46 percent of registered Florida voters chose Mitt Romney and 43 percent chose Obama. When the incumbent was placed against Rick Santorum, he garnered 45 percent of the vote while the former Pennsylvania senator received 43 percent. Though the poll was released Wednesday, the survey was taken immediately following the Iowa caucus, so it's unclear whether Santorum's support remains as high following Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. Florida, which is expected to be a swing state, will hold its primary Jan. 31.
