Mitt Romney beats out Rick Santorum in a poll of Texas Republicans | Sunshine State News

Romney 32, Santorum 30, Newt 19, Paul 9

In the last TX primary poll that I'm aware of - about a month ago - Santorum had a huge lead:

UT/TT Poll: Santorum Crushing GOP Hopefuls in Texas — 2012 Presidential Election | The Texas Tribune

Both Santorum and Newt have pinned their hopes on the Texas primary. This doesn't look good for either of them. Too bad, so sad.

Great news! If he is leading in TX, that is a really good sign.

Um, a 2-point difference isn't a "lead." It's within the margin of error. Plus, Santorum has endorsements from numerous Texas legislators including the comptroller and secretary of finance. And Santorum has gathered at least $2 million from a fundraiser in Texas last week. It was expected that Romney was going to gain on Santorum's lead from last month's poll after he had a good Super Tuesday.

Who care. It's more than 2 months away. Anything can change in weeks.

He did gain from where he previously was. He was way behind before.

When Gingrich drops out after tonight, we'll see if Romney still has the lead.
