Romney still leading in Wisconsin

in Uncategorized by

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Wisconsin shows Mitt Romney leading Rick Santorum in this week’s Republican primary, 43% to 36%, with Ron Paul at 11% and Newt Gingrich at 8%.

Key finding: “The only thing keeping Santorum competitive in Wisconsin is the state’s open primary. He actually trails Romney 50-36 with Republican voters but 40% of those saying they’re likely to vote are either independents or Democrats and with those folks Santorum leads 37-32, making it more competitive overall. If those non-Republicans don’t actually end up turning out Romney can expect to win by a wider margin.”
