WASHINGTON - US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has widened his lead over rival Newt Gingrich to 11 points in Florida, with just three days remaining before the state's Republican primary, according to Reuters/Ipsos online poll results released on Saturday.

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum trailed with 16 percent, although he had gained ground from 13 percent in a similar poll a day earlier. Texas Congressman Ron Paul was at 6 percent.
