New Poll: Romney Blows Out Santorum in Wake of AZ Debate

Posted By on Fri, Feb 24, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Rasmussen has a new poll out in the wake of the Arizona debate that shows Mitt Romney taking big lead over Rick Santorum in next week's presidential primary:


Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has widened his lead over leading challenger Rick Santorum in the Arizona Republican Primary race with the vote just four days away.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Arizona Republican Primary Voters finds Romney leading Santorum 42% to 29%. The survey, taken after the last scheduled debate of the GOP candidates, finds Romney up three points and Santorum down two from a week ago when it was a 39% to 31% race.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich earns 16% support, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul trails with eight percent (8%), marking virtually no change for either man from the previous survey. Only one percent (1%) favors another candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This Arizona survey of 750 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted on February 23, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

We can't say we're surprised.

Romney is also taking a big lead over Santorum in Michigan, according to Rasmussen. Santorum has hit his high-water mark.
