Mitt Romney is likely to win 50 percent of the vote in Nevada this Saturday, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling. Results of the survey predict that his closest competitor, Newt Gingrich, will win 25 percent. In a change from the last primary election, in Florida, the poll foresees Ron Paul taking third place, with Rick Santorum in fourth. The poll's analysis explains that Nevada Republicans don't just like Romney more, they "actively dislike" Gingrich—49 percent have a negative opinion of the former speaker. "That's an indication that GOP voters might be starting to sour on him again, sending his numbers back to preSouth Carolina levels," the pollsters write.
