Gingrich, Santorum Trail Romney in Today's Nevada Republican Primary

Following Mitt Romney's 14-point victory in the Florida Republican primary, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are bracing for another double-digit Romney win in Nevada tonight. Townhall's latest polling average shows Romney with a twenty-point lead over his nearest rival, Newt Gingrich. If things break for Mitt tonight, he could end up with fifty percent of the vote.

Romney doesn't even plan on being in Nevada for much of the day - he's flown to Colorado for a short day of campaigning before returning to Nevada for a likely victory party tonight.

Gingrich has cast tonight's Nevada contest as a fight for second place, hoping to hold off Santorum and Ron Paul all while looking ahead. Gingrich might be in for a rough month of primaries in which he's fighting an uphill battle, but he's said time and again that it's about the delegates, and that only very few early states have voted so far.

Romney, however, is positioning himself as the likely nominee.

"I'm convinced that I can beat Barack Obama and I don't think anyone else can," [Romney] told volunteers making phone calls for him Friday.

He accused the president of failing to do enough to create jobs as he campaigned in a state with sky-high unemployment and foreclosure rates. Nevada's unemployment rate was 12.6 in December - well above the national average - after a record economic bust.

This is the second in a series of primaries that look rough for Romney's rivals - this month will be a real test to see if anyone can stop Mitt.
