Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is so excited about his probable win in the Florida primary that he broke out into song Monday.

The candidate has been quoting Katharine Lee Bates’ “America the Beautiful” on the campaign trail for weeks, but at his final event before Florida voters go to the polls, he sang the entire first verse.

And Romney has a reason to sing: The latest Suffolk University-7News poll shows Romney with a 31 point lead over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich among early voters, 55 percent to 24 percent.

Last week, President Barack Obama treated supporters at the Apollo theater to a little of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”

Vote for the better singer in the poll below.
