Democrats are touting comments by Gallup’s editor in chief that Mitt Romney’s national support is “collapsing.”
Gallup’s Frank Newport told MSNBC that new data on Friday shows Romney with a lead, but a diminished one.
“Romney was up 23 points over Newt Gingrich,” Newport said, reports Talking Points Memo in a story e-mailed out by the Democratic Party. “Now it will be down (t0) about 10 points, so clearly things are collapsing.”
Indeed, Romney leads Gingrich 30%-20% in Gallup’s latest daily track; yesterday, Romney was leading 33%-17%.
Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are tied for third place, each at 13%.
