2012 Florida Primary Betting Odds Favor Newt Gingrich To Win

Filed under: Political Betting Odds |

The race to win the GOP nomination for the 2012 Presidential Election has been one of historic proportions.

For the first time in history, a different nominee has won each of the first three primaries as they work towards the nomination of the party.

First, it was a win by Rick Santorum in Iowa to kick things off.

That was followed by a victory for Mitt Romney in New Hampshire. Many believed Romney was the favorite to go on to South Carolina and come away with the win.

But that was not the case, as Newt Gingrich took South Carolina by a significant 12-point margin. Gingrich took 40 percent of the vote in South Carolina, while Romney came in second with 28 percent.

Now, the candidates look towards Florida, a critical piece to the puzzle that could go a long way to deciding the winner of the GOP nomination.

Oddsmakers are jumping in on the primary action.
