Santorum Has the Momentum in Michigan GOP Primary



If Romney loses Michigan today, his credibility to represent as the GOP nominee will be difficult. Thus, Romney would have a tough election in November.

(Fox Detroit) LANSING, Mich. - Mitt Romney is neck-and-neck with-Rick Santorum in Michigan but has pulled far ahead in Arizona on the eve of key primary contests in both states, according to new polls.

The Public Policy Polling (PPP) final survey of likely Michigan primary voters, conducted Sunday and Monday, found Santorum edging Romney by a margin of 38 percent to 37 percent -- a difference within the poll's margin of error.

The poll, however, did find momentum swinging toward Santorum in the final hours before the Michigan contest, with the former Pennsylvania senator holding a 39 percent to 34 percent advantage among those polled on Monday, the second day of polling.
