Cómodas ventajas de Santorum y Gingrich en OK y GA

Encuesta de American Research Group para Oklahoma:
Encuesta de Landmark Communications/Rosetta Stone para Georgia:
The poll was commissioned by WSB-TV Channel 2 in Atlanta.

The poll, conducted Thursday evening March 1, reveals that Gingrich is winning both the Metro Atlanta area of the state, which constitutes approximately 45% of the Republican Primary vote, as well as winning in the rest of the state.

42% of likely voters say they will vote for Gingrich (an increase of 4 percentage points over the last week), 22% respond they will vote for former Governor Mitt Romney (an increase of 3%), 16% for former Senator Rick Santorum (down 9%), and 5% for Congressman Ron Paul (unchanged).

Older voters are much more likely to support Gingrich (49% of those aged 65 and older choose Gingrich), though Gingrich leads with all age groups.

“Rick Santorum’s defeat at the hands of Romney in the Michigan Primary on Tuesday is likely having a negative effect on Santorum’s support in Georgia,” said Mark Rountree, President of Landmark Communications. “It’s natural that if Santorum surged as a result of a series of election victories, that a series of defeats would likewise hurt him.”

“Newt Gingrich has solidified his vote here in Georgia. It looks increasingly unlikely that Romney or Santorum will be able to catch up. It will be interesting to watch how the campaigns operate in Georgia over the weekend,” said John Garst, President of Rosetta Stone Communications in Atlanta.
