Outside of South Carolina, Women Don’t Find Newt So Charming


Over on the homepage, I lay out five key lessons from Florida: The gender gap returned with a vengeance; the elderly abandoned Newt: early voting closed the window for Gingrich to help himself in the final days; Romney ran stronger among evangelicals than most expected: and Newt underperformed where he needed it most, in the Panhandle and key northern Florida counties.

Oh, and some GOP consultants are talking about making the national party convention in Tampa “more interesting and productive than most.”
