Florida Primary Poll: Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney tied

Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are in a statistical tie among Floridians likely to vote in Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary, according to a new CNN/Time/ORC International Poll.

The poll indicates that, while Gingrich surged after his 12-point victory in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, his momentum appears to be cooling.

According to the poll, 36% of likely voters said they are backing Romney, with 34% supporting Gingrich. The 2-point margin is well within the survey’s sampling error. Rick Santorum is at 11%, and Rep. Ron Paul is at 9%.

The poll’s Wednesday release comes one day before a CNN/Republican Party of Florida presidential debate in Jacksonville. Watch the debate Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on CNN TV, CNN.com/live and CNN’s mobile apps.
