Latest MI polls 3 show Romney ahead and 2 show Santorum ahead

Can't be looking good for Romney. Polls tend to ask likely Republican voters and not take into account Dems and Inds that want to embarass Romney.



http://politicalwire.com/archives/2012/02/27/mixed_polling_results_in_michigan.html

Though a Public Policy Polling survey released late last night showed Mitt Romney regaining the lead over Rick Santorum in the Michigan GOP primary, 39% to 37%, a new Mitchell Research/Rosetta Stone poll shows Santorum taking over the lead back from Romney, 37% to 35%.

A new We Ask America poll shows Romney ahead 37% to 33%.

A new American Research Group survey shows Santorum just ahead, 36% to 35%.

A new Rasmussen survey shows Romney leading, 38% to 36%.

1. cool. I'll be rooting for him tomorrow. There is nothing more satisfying

than seeing Romney lose. There's no telling what a win for Santorum will do...embolden him more
to say more and more crazy shit.

2. Only problem is, as PPP noted, Romney does have a substantial lead among early voters

so Santorum would have to win pretty solidly in the actual voting tomorrow. This is where Romney's organization is helping. Santorum doesn't even have a campaign office in Michigan.

5. PPP

According to the PPP polling, Santorum is winning voters who will vote tomorrow. People who will vote tomorrow will make up a much larger percentage of the overall vote so this is good for Santorum. Regardless of who wins, it will be very close. I don't really care who the nominee is because I think both are weak candidates. I just want Romney to lose MI because it has been so annoying to listen to the "native son" nonsense for 5 years.

12. I'm sure some will

I don't know how many Dems will show up. I'm doubtful there will be a huge number of Dems. The PPP poll showed about 5% were Dems. Since it will probably be a close election, even a small number of Dems could effect the result.

14. Tampering with the other side's primary seldomly (if ever) works

There simply aren't that many die-hard politicos out there who will do it.

4. actually the latest trends have been switching over to Romney

according to most polls in Michigan. After Santorum had his triple wins a couple of weeks ago, the Michigan polls indicated that Santorum had taken a 6 or 7 point lead. In the last week especially most of the polls have been closing in Romney's favor including PPP which went from a 6-point Santorum lead to a 2-point Romney lead.
