So, what does this all mean?

Looks like Mitt Romney who announced his exploratory Presidential committee today has a leg up in this race, especially if Mike Huckabee does not run.

President Obama who won Florida by 3 points in 2008 may have a tough time in 2012 unless the GOP were to nominate someone like Sarah Palin or Donald Trump.

The GOP needs to win Florida and its 29 electoral votes in order to beat the incumbent President Obama and chances look good that they will.
