Yahoo! | Florida Exit Polls Show Tea Partiers Narrowly Preferred Romney

It was close …

Mitt Romney turned the tables on Newt Gingrich in Tuesday’s Florida primary, stealing his Tea Party clothes in the process.

Exit polling data showed Romney beat Gingrich in one of the former House of Representatives speaker’s core conservative constituencies, a sign that Republican voters may be coalescing around the man they think can best win the general election in November against Democratic President Barack Obama.

Out of the 66 percent of Florida voters who said they supported the small-government Tea Party movement, 41 percent cast their ballots for Romney and 38 percent for Gingrich, according to the data compiled for U.S. news organizations.”
