Momentum in Michigan Swinging Back to Santorum

February 27, 2012

according to http://www.thehill.com

… a Mitchell Research-Rosetta Stone poll shows Santorum with the momentum, overtaking Romney during the weekend 37 percent to 35 percent.

“Romney’s strategy had been to win over all conservatives by hammering Santorum on the fact that he is not the fiscal conservative he claimed to be,” said Mitchell Research president Steve Mitchell in a statement. “Up until the weekend, that strategy seemed to be successful. However, Santorum’s push for conservatives in the past three days seems to have worked and they moved back to him, allowing him to re-take the lead. The volatility we thought had changed has not. The race remains very fluid.”

Romney led the same poll last week 36 percent to 33 percent, after briefly stealing support from Santorum’s key constituents — evangelical Christians, Tea Party supporters and the very conservative.

That support has swung back in favor of Santorum, according to the Mitchell-Rosetta poll.
