Mitt Romney Or Rick Santorum OVER Obama?

The former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum has won polls in three states on Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has won the state’s primary caucuses in Maine on Saturday. Mr Santorum, now viewed as Mr Romney’s main rival nationally, also had only limited campaign activity in the state, according to US media.

Romney topped a straw poll held at the end of the three-day, with 38% of the vote, Santorum came in second with 31%, with Mr Gingrich and Mr Paul on 15% and 12%.

Rasmussen Reports says: “In a potential Election 2012 matchup, the president posts a 49% to 42% lead over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.”

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum trails the president by four percentage points, 46% to 42%. Last week, Santorum had a one-point advantage over Obama. However, like Rick Perry, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich before him, Santorum was unable to sustain that advantage beyond a single poll.

In Florida as in Ohio and among voters nationally, Santorum now runs slightly stronger against Obama than Romney does. Obama is essentially even with Santorum in the Sunshine State but leads Romney by three points.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.

Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s job performance.  50% at least somewhat disapprove.”
