A new Florida Times-Union/Insider Advantage poll in Florida finds Rick Perry leading Mitt Romney in the GOP presidential primary race by nine points, 29% to 20%. All other candidates are the single digits.
Said pollster Matt Towery: “Romney’s saving grace likely is his position on Social Security, which helped him to a lead over Perry among Florida seniors. Even so, Perry did fairly well among seniors also.”
Voters over 65 backed Romney 31% to 23% over Perry.
