Survey: Rick Santorum Has Sizable Lead Over Mitt Romney Heading Into Saturday's La. Primary March 20, 2012
WASHINGTON -- Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has a significant lead over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in Louisiana heading into Saturday's primary, according to a survey conducted Monday by a Republican polling firm.
According to the survey of 2,018 likely Republican voters conducted by Magellan Strategies BR, and not paid for by any campaign or political organization, Santorum was leading Romney by 13 points -- 37 percent to 24 percent, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, right behind Romney with 24 percent.
According to the survey, if Gingrich were not in the race, 61 percent of his support would go to Santorum, and only 22 percent to Romney. In a one-on-one contest, Santorum would defeat Romney by 21 points -- 55 to 34 percent with 11 percent undecided.

We need to unite and fight Romney. He needs to have his coronation stopped.
If Ricky were running for Jeff Davis’ job, this’d be great news! Unfortunately, he’s running for Barack Obama’s position!
Nothing suppresses a vote more than then belief of loss.
If Ricky were running for Jeff Davis job, thisd be great news!
Who is this? A congressman?
Rick Santorum usually wins in the conservative states; Romney wins in the liberal states.
Why is that? LOL
Right now - Rick has 35% to Romney’s 47% in IL, that’s pretty impressive. He’ll have some tailwind even if not a victory...
Here’s a little good news to cheer you up.
I needed some good news tonight!
If Willard hadn’t pumped millions of dollars in attack ads against other Republican candidates, he would be toast. You Mitt-Bots must be very proud of him.
Aftermath with Santorum Ill. Primary
As Myth would say telle est la vie
You ain’t a kiddin’....
Jesse Jackass Junior won with over 50,000 votes, the Republican challenger won his primary with fewer than 10,000 votes.
It doesn’t matter much, because Louisiana has so few delegates, and they are all “unbound” to the convention, but to the degree you trust the selection of delegates, the goal in Louisiana is to keep ROmney below 25%, which is the cutoff for proportional assignment.
So in this case, we want Gingrich to stay in the race, and to take a few percent from Romney.
What isn’t helpful is Gingrich taking votes from Santorum, if it helps Romney get over 25%. If Romney ends up below 25%, conservatives win.
Mitt-Bot? I hope you enjoyed your short stay with us.
Sure it’s talent...if you have a bucket full of money to throw around and buy those never ending,mud-slinging, robo-calls.
Your comment is a pathetic snide comment .
What’s your point outside of making a snide comment about my family’s state which you know nothing about.
Odd how you leave the real enemy Mittens alone ?
