With Alabama’s March 13 primary looking more and more important, Rick Santorum has pulled even with the Republican field in a poll conducted by Alabama State University. While former House Speaker Newt Gingrich maintains a small lead with 18.9 percent, Santorum’s share of support has more than doubled in the last month to 18.3 percent. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has slipped to 15.2 percent.
Texas Congressman Ron Paul was not included in the poll except for a choice for “other.”
The poll, conducted statewide over the past month, found 28 percent of likely GOP primary voters remain undecided on their choices heading into the state’s March 13 primary. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich had the support of 18.9 percent of respondents; Santorum had 18.3 percent, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney had 15.2 percent.
The poll did not include Texas congressman Ron Paul, who was grouped in a category labeled “Others” that included candidates that have since dropped out of the race. Myles Mayberry, manager of demographic research services for the Center for Leadership and Public Policy, said Paul stood at 4 percent in the most recently conducted poll.
