Here is video of Gov. Mitt Romney delivering an outstanding victory speech in Florida tonight, after winning the Florida GOP Presidential Primary by a wide margin.

Romney focused his speech squarely on President Barack Obama. The speech was a preview of what Mitt Romney’s Campaign would look like this Fall if he becomes the GOP Nominee. He hammered Obama on the Economy and on the failed direction he is taking the nation.

Paul said he had called to congratulate Mitt Romney on his victory in Florida, but he said he also told him, “I’ll see you in the Caucus states.” The Ron Paul crowd roared their approval.

Paul is clearly excited to be in caucus states like Nevada, Maine, and Minnesota, and he believes he is going to do well there.

Here is complete video of Newt Gingrich delivering a defiant speech in the wake of a distant second place finish to Mitt Romney in the Florida GOP Presidential Primary.

Gingrich never congratulated Romney on his victory in Florida, but instead made it clear he intends to fight Romney in every state. Gingrich supporters held up signs that said, “46 states to go.” He said he would run a campaign “of the people, by the people, for the people,” and that in the end, “people power” would triumph over “money power.”

He also spent a good deal of time describing what he would do his first day as President. From this speech, you would never know he just lost a primary race by a wide margin. He certainly made it clear he won’t leave the race anytime soon.

CNN and Fox News just projected Gov. Mitt Romney as the winner of the Florida Primary. The polls are now closed in the entire state, and Romney’s lead in votes already counted from the precincts that closed an hour ago is fluctuating between 17-20%. Romney is getting right at 50% of the vote. If he winds up getting between 45%-50% of the final vote, it will be a huge night, indeed, for Mitt Romney.

Here is a Republican National Committee Web Ad that wastes no time pointing out just how out of touch President Obama is regarding the state of the U.S. Economy. They use video of Obama’s exchange yesterday with a woman who spoke to him during a Google event and told him her husband, a semiconductor engineer, had been out of work for three years. Obama was clearly disbelieving, essentially telling the woman her husband should not be out of work. The ad drives home the reality that Obama’s sunny outlook on the U.S. Economy is just not matched by the reality of it.

Here is video of Newt Gingrich on Fox & Friends this morning where he essentially called on Rick Santorum to drop out of the GOP Presidential race for the good of the party. He did not say that verbatim, but he did say that as long as the conservative vote remains split, Romney will continue to win. Gingrich said it is clear “I am the leading conservative,” and he hopes the conservative vote can be “consolidated” in the weeks ahead. When asked if he was calling on Santorum, he simply repeated his hope the conservative vote can be consolidated.

The problem is that Gingrich assumes he would get most of the Santorum vote. But the numbers don’t bear that out.

As the Newt Gingrich Campaign looks beyond today’s Florida Primary – where it looks like a win for Mitt Romney is coming – they are already lowering expectations for some of the February contests:

CNN Political Ticker: Up against Mitt Romney’s robust campaign operation and facing a tough February slog, Newt Gingrich’s campaign is tempering expectations for two major contests and largely setting its sights on March, when a slew of southern states begin to weigh in on the presidential race.

Gingrich campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond told CNN Monday that Michigan and Nevada – two states that Romney won during his unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign – will be difficult political terrain for the former House speaker come February.

“The toughest one is Nevada,” Hammond said.

As for Michigan, he said: “If we are looking at the six February states right now and we are going to rank them, we are not putting Michigan first.”

“Our strongest states, you look at Arizona, you look at Minnesota, Maine and Colorado,” he said.

Arizona is a primary state, while Minnesota, Maine and Colorado all have caucuses scheduled for next month. . . . Read More

Public Policy Polling’s final Florida Poll shows Mitt Romney headed for an 8 point victory today over Newt Gingrich:

PUBLIC POLICY POLLING: PPP’s tracking of the Florida Republican primary wraps up with Mitt Romney at 39%, Newt Gingrich at 31%, Rick Santorum at 15%, and Ron Paul at 11%. Our three days of tracking found very little movement in the race: Romney was at 39-40% every day, Gingrich was at 31-32% every day, Santorum was at 14-15% every day, and Paul was at 9-11% every day.

The lack of movement in the final 72 hours of the campaign is a far cry from the dramatic shifts Florida Republicans made in their preferences over the last four months. In late September we found Mitt Romney ahead of Newt Gingrich by 20 points in the state. By late November, as he surged nationally, Gingrich had taken a 30 point led over Romney. But then our first poll in early January, after poor performances by Gingrich in Iowa and New Hampshire, found Romney back on top by 15 points. Riding a (short lived) wave of momentum off his South Carolina victory, Gingrich led our Florida poll last week by 5 points. By the end of the week the race had swung back to Romney and over the last three days his lead has been steady in the 7-8 point range.

One thing Romney did a great job of was getting his voters out early. With the third of the electorate who have already cast their ballots he leads 45-32. That means Gingrich would have to win election day voters by somewhere in the 6-8 point range to pull off the Florida upset, but we find that Romney still has a 36-30 advantage with those are waiting to vote tomorrow.

Romney will win in Florida tomorrow because he’s winning his core groups of support by wide margins, while holding Gingrich to single digit advantages with his key constituencies. Romney is winning moderates by 39 (53-14), seniors by 12 (46-32), and women by 12 (42-30). Meanwhile Gingrich is only up 8 with Tea Partiers (39-31) and 6 with Evangelicals (38-32), groups he won by huge margins in South Carolina. . . . Read More

Here is video of President Obama in a “Google hangout interview” today explaining to a woman why her husband should not still be out of work after losing his full-time job three years ago. The woman said her husband is a “Semiconductor Engineer,” and Obama was clearly mystified as to why he can’t get a job right away. He offered to send her husband’s resume to companies that are telling him they can’t find enough engineers.
