GOP Polls, Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has erased a 10-point deficit against rival Rick Santorum among registered Republicans in the race for the GOP nomination, according to a new Gallup poll released Monday on the eve of the Michigan and Arizona primaries.
In the new Gallup tracking poll, 31% of respondents said they would support Romney and 26% said they favored Santorum, reversing a 36% to 26% advantage for the former Pennsylvania senator last week.
But another nationwide poll released Monday — addressing likely GOP voters nationwide — suggests the candidates are just about evenly split between presidential Santorum and Romney.
The Politico/George Washington University Battleground Poll gives Santorum the support of 36% of likely GOP voters, while the former Massachusetts governor gets 34% — within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
The poll also indicates that independent voters, whose support will be crucial in the general election, have a more favorable view of Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania.
According to the poll, 40% of independent voters hold a favorable view of Santorum while 33% hold Romney in a positive light.
