Gingrich Attracting 'Enormous' Crowds In Florida; Romney, Meh, Not So Much

By Susan Duclos

LA Times reports that Newt Gingrich drew a crowd of approximately 3,000 in Naples Florida on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, then drew another crowd of 5,000 on his final stop of the day.

According to the same article, Romney's crowds were "significantly smaller throngs."

While Romney spoke Wednesday morning at a metal distribution facility in Orlando, 300 unused chairs remained stacked off to the side. That was more than the number of people he attracted, no more than 250 in all.

On the same day that just two of Gingrich's appearance drew a combined total of 8,000 people, Romney drew about "150 people to a closed speech in Tampa and addressed about 300 people outside a foreclosed house in southwest Florida later in the day."

Is it any wonder that Mitt Romney is on Full Tilt?

Romney needs a political miracle between now and next Tuesday's primaries if he hopes to take Florida.
