We Have Time for Two, Maybe Three More Florida Surges


Caution: Watching the Florida polls can expose viewers to dangerous risk of whiplash.

The past three polls: Romney by 8, Romney by 2, tie.

The preceding three polls: Gingrich by 5, Gingrich by 8, Gingrich by 9.

The preceding four polls before that: Romney by 2, Romney by 14, Romney by 24, Romney by 26.

We’re going to have to start measuring surges in milliseconds. We’re going to have to start measuring news cycles in Planck units.
