The victory ends a bit of a dry spell for the former speaker. Since
winning South Carolina January 21, Newt has placed second in Florida
with 31.9 percent, and then a slow decline: 21.1 percent in the
low-turnout Nevada caucuses (29 percentage points behind Romney) and
then 10.8 percent in the nonbinding results in Minnesota, 12.8 percent
in the nonbinding results in Colorado, 6.7 percent in Maine, 6.5 percent
in Michigan, 16.2 percent in Arizona and 10.3 percent in Washington.
