Two New Polls Show Gingrich Now 3rd. Only Other Candidate in Double Figures

Continuing the slow but steady rise that has been apparent for some weeks now Newt Gingrich is solidifying
his third place situation behind Cain/Romney.

A new poll in Florida , posted below shows Gingrich as the only other candidate in double figures and rising. This is mirrored in the latest nationwide Rasmussen poll which also has him as the only other candidate in double figures.

If Cain falters under scrutiny then Gingrich automatically becomes the "Non-Romney". At that point, given that it could be likely that no candidate has enough delegates at the convention there may well be a brokered convention with many ballots. How that would turn out, with the possibility of candidates bargaining their delegates or the convention turning to someone who did not run, is anyone's guess.
