Poll: Romney, Santorum Even in Michigan Polls on Primary Eve

HuffPost Pollster aggregate data shows Romney support increasing over the past two weeks.

Poll: Romney, Santorum Even in Michigan Polls on Primary Eve

The latest round of polls on the eve of the critical Michigan Republican Primary Tuesday indicates that former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and former Penn. Sen. Rick Santorum are within single-digits of each other, according to the Huffington Post. 

Three of the five surveys, by Rasmussen Reports, Public Policy Polling (PPP) and We Ask America, show Romney ahead of Santorum by two to four percentage points.

The two others, an automated poll by Mitchell Research and the one live-interviewer survey by the American Research Group (ARG), show Santorum ahead of Romney by one to two percentage points.

The HuffPost Pollster chart, which uses all of the recent public surveys to derive a single set of data indicates a late trend toward Romney, whose support has increased roughly eight percentage points over the past two weeks. The chart's current estimate gives Romney a roughly two-point lead over Santorum.
