The polls in Florida are looking pretty great for Mitt Romney just two days before the crucial Florida primary. The RealClearPolitics poll average shows Romney up by about 11.6 per cent in the last round of polling. 

The front page of the Miami Herald this morning had the headline: “Mitt- By A Lot” and touted a poll showing Romney pulling away to an 11-point lead in the very latest poll
