Poll after poll are showing that Mitt Romney has a commanding lock on the Florida vote count today. But don't count Newt Gingrich out just yet says the thiriller from Wasilla, Sarah Palin.

Gingrich was bolstered, if that's the right word, with an unexpected weekend endorsement from another former front-runner with documented marital issues of his own, Herman Cain, and the Florida Tea Party.

But pundits were astounded to see 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin appear on Fox News on Sunday to endorse the former Republican House Speaker: 'If for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for Newt; annoy a liberal, vote Newt. Keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going,' she enthused.

And her unexpected challenge might yet have an impact. A recent poll shaved Romney's lead down to just five points and another suggested his front-runner's position was ebbing.

Gingrich is the unlikely favorite with with traditional values  Evangelicals, Tea Partiers, and those voters who describe themselves as 'very conservative.' Unfortunately, his margins with these conservative groups are not as large as they were in South Carolina.

By throwing her lot in with Gingrich we will learn a great deal about the political clout of Sarah Palin tonight.
