Ron Paul has placed a surprising tie for second place in Wisconsin in a new poll by the Marquette University Law School. Mitt Romney has 18% compared to 17% for Ron Paul. Looks like Wisconsin will still be relevant come the April 3rd primary. From thestatecolumn.com
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has tied former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for second place in a Marquette University Law School poll of likely voters in the Wisconsin Republican presidential primary.
Mr. Paul garnered 17 percent of the votes in the Wisconsin poll and Mr. Romney pulled in 18 percent of the votes. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum finished in first with 34 percent of the votes. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose campaign is struggling to regain momentum, earned 12 percent of the votes.
Although Mr. Santorum has a double-digit lead over his competitors, Mr. Paul and Mr. Romney still have time to increase their support among Badger State voters. The Wisconsin poll reveals that 17 percent of Republican voters are undecided.
