Mitchell/Rosetta Stone: Santorum 34%, Romney 25% en Michigan

RealClearPolitics:
Rick Santorum has jumped into the lead in a Mitchell/Rosetta Stone Poll of Michigan conducted for MIRS (Michigan Information & Research Service). Santorum (34%) has a 9% lead over Mitt Romney (25%) while Ron Paul (11%) and Newt Gingrich (5%) are far behind in a trial Republican presidential ballot test. A quarter of the voters remain undecided (25%).

Just twelve days ago, before Santorum's victories in Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado on February 7th, Romney (31%) held a 15% lead over Newt Gingrich (16%) with Santorum (15%) and Paul (15%) right behind. Four percent said they were voting for someone else and 19% were undecided in the earlier survey.

(...) "Santorum's strong showing on February 7th has turned this volatile race upside down in Michigan. Mitt Romney has dropped 6%, Santorum has jumped 18%, while Newt Gingrich's support has collapsed. Santorum has staked a lot in going after Romney in his home state, and so far the gamble is paying off. Conservatives are uniting behind Santorum and abandoning Gingrich. Now, we will have to see if Santorum has the financial resources to compete against Romney's big money in the state in which he was born and raised," Steve Mitchell, president of Mitchell Research & Communications, Inc. said.
