Yes, there's a million different polls coming from all different directions, but the latest from War Room Logistics, a Republican aligned firm bases in Gainseville, is worth a look. Unlike most polls this early in the race, the survey polled likely Florida voters and not just registered voters. The poll also compared numbers from before Herman Cain's surprise win in Florida's P5 straw pool and after.
"The War Room Logistics surveys have been unlike any other in Florida because they're based on a sample of likely voters, instead of just registered voters,"explains The Herald
. "Around now, it's more common (and cheaper) to poll registered voters because the campaigns aren't in full swing and it's a little tougher to estimate the likely voter population."
