Gallup's latest:

Gallup Daily tracking conducted through Tuesday night finds Romney already enjoying a national boost born of his success in Florida, even before the full impact of his victory there has played itself out in the Gallup data. Romney's current five-percentage-point lead will likely expand in the coming days, following the pattern seen previously for the primary victors.

Given the volatility in the race to date, however, and the proven capacity of major campaign events to be catalysts for further change, it remains to be seen whether Romney can maintain that momentum.
