Just days ahead of Florida's straw poll, Florida's Republican Party Communications Director Brian Hughes explained to "Power Play Live" host Chris Stirewalt just how big the sunshine state showdown really is. "The winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll is going to be the Republican nominee," Hughes said. He also explained the difference between his state's contest and the Iowa Straw Poll held in August.

After watching the Florida debate the other night, I was very pessimistic about this race. The 2 "frontrunners" looked very "high school" to me. I felt like I did in 2007 when McCain was shoved down our throats.
Now, I'm hoping what the Florida governor said is true....he said the last 3 winners of the FL straw poll went on to get the nomination, and that the winner today would be the candidate.
I think it's time to send Herman Cain a campaign contribution.

And all I've been hearing from the media is, "Whoever wins this poll will most likely be the republican nominee."
How can they make that statement? Are they giving this way more attention because Perry and/or Romney have big followings there?
If Florida was a Ron Paul stronghold, they would not be saying that.
Old retired people like "smooth talkers and charmers". So clearly Romney will win today, that's why the media is saying this poll is the "8 ball."
