Santorum leads Romney in latest Ohio poll
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum still has a small lead over rival Mitt Romney in the latest poll of likely Republican primary voters in Ohio, though the gap between the two men has shrunk since Monday.
Conducted by Quinnipiac University, the poll released Friday found Santorum leads the former Massachusetts governor 35 percent to 31 percent among likely Republican voters, compared to a poll released Monday showing Santorum with 36 percent to Romney's 29 percent.
Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said a third of Ohio Republican voters told pollsters they might change their mind before March 6, when Republicans in ten states choose who they want to take on President Obama in November.
In addition to the Buckeye state, voters in Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia head to the polls on "Super Tuesday," as the early March contest has come to be known. Ohio is considered the most important of the states as it will be crucial for the Republican candidate to win Ohio in the general election seven months from now.

2. Ohio doesn't seem to like Romney very much.
he has had a very hard time breaking 30% there, this is the first time iv seen a poll with him over that.

3. It's those Michigan trees,
or maybe that Ohio leads Michigan in US Presidents 7 - zip.
Probably a bit unfair, Michigan doesn't like Mitt very much, but then again, who does?

6. Not much time left for that, primary is in 4 days.
And he already has, the ad war has been ongoing in Ohio for sometime now.
he might win cause of momentum and electability though.
And even in Michigan Romney's ads did not do all that much to Santorum, Santorum's mouth is what did Santorum in.
