Santorum Has Double Digit Lead over Romney in Michigan

Results from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling’s latest Michigan poll: Rick Santorum (39 percent), Mitt Romney (24 percent), Ron Paul (12 percent), and Newt Gingrich (11 percent). 

One surprising aspect of the poll: Santorum’s doing significantly better among Democrats and independents than Romney is. “Santorum’s benefiting from the open nature of Michigan’s primary as well. He’s only up by 12 points with actual Republican voters, but he has a 40-21 advantage with the Democrats and independents planning to vote that pushes his overall lead up to 15 points,” notes PPP.
