Crystal Ball: Predicting Florida GOP Primary Results

By ABC News

Jan 31, 2012 3:13pm

We’re journalists, not prognosticators. But we can have a little fun with the Florida primary. Below, ABC News staffers – from correspondents to interns – offer predictions on who will win the Florida primary, when the last polls close at 8 p.m. ET.  In Iowa, ABC’s Jonathan Karl won the crystal ball after Rick Santorum became the ultimate victor of the caucuses there. In New Hampshire, Matt Negrin had the best prediction (but just barely).  And in South Carolina, ABC’s Shush Walshe won bragging rights.  So without further ado, here are our predictions for Florida:
