New Poll Shows Romney in Lead in Wisconsin

In a new poll released today by Rasmussen Reports, Mitt Romney has a 13 point lead over Rick Santorum. This is a turn-around from two previous polls that showed Santorum in the lead in the Dairy State.

The Republican presidential primary in Wisconsin is heating up. Ads are playing on television and candidates are starting to make appearances. And now, in a new poll released today from Rasmussen Reports, Mitt Romney leads Rick Santorum by 13 points, a new twist from two previous surveys that put Santorum in the lead.

Last month, survey results from a Marquette University poll showed Santorum in the lead with 34 percent of the vote compared to Romney's 18 percent. Likewise, a poll from Public Policy Polling a week later resulted in a similar outcome: Santorum with another double-digit lead over Romney, 43 to 27 percent, respectively.

Results from the Rasmussen Report show Romney in the lead with 46 percent over Santorum's 33 percent. The rest of the field shakes out like this:

  • Ron Paul; 8%
  • Newt Gingrich; 7%
  • Other candidate; 1%
  • Undecided; 5%

Rasmussen Reports says its survey was conducted among 1,000 eligible Wisconsin voters on March 21, 2012 and has a +/- 3% margin of error.

Bob, your teasing aside, I'm a moderate independent and proud of it. I did like Jon Huntsman. Of all the candidates, I feel that he had the best capacity to bring both sides of the aisle together again. I also believed that he would represent our country in a dignified, knowledgeable, and respectful manner on the international stage. He doesn't have the same type of "past" as the other Republican nominees, doesn't have to answer questions about his patriotic infidelities, revenue sources, intemperate comments, or newsletter content. I was disappointed that the GOP didn't embrace him as their candidate.

The US should never have backed opposition to Muammar Gaddafi. Since Clinton put a missle in Gaddafi's living room and killed his kid, he was afraid to mess with the USA. Only an idiot like Obama would back an Arab Spring where the new leader of Libya will hate us more and respect us less. What we got a was bill for protecting the uprisers and a Muslim Brotherhood leadership. Another unfunded war. Iraq was supposed to have ended in the first year of the BO admin... Hope and change my butt, this Bozo has us circling the drain. Have we cut funding to any Countries who hate us? Anyone but Obama in 2012! I'd even vote for Ernie and Bert over that fool.

So Bren you would have voted for Huntsman rather than Obama?

Voting Ron Paul because he's by far the most honest candidate in the Republican field and can beat Obama http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/306941/20120229/ron-paul-2012-rasmussen-poll-beat-obama.htm

NDAA, The Patriot Act, Federal Reserve, ACTA, undeclared wars, imperialism, military industrial complex, bail-outs, the income tax, government controlled education, corporatist controlled medicine and mainstream media. You bet your apples I'm voting for Ron Paul.
