As America was gearing up to watch the Oscars, We Ask America was in the field in Michigan and Arizona asking likely Republican voters for the final time before Tuesday’s primaries asking voters for their choice for president. This time, we didn’t give participants an option to say they were undecided:
If the Primary Election for President were held today–and you HAD to make a choice–for whom would you vote?
Here’s what Michigan voters said:Type: Automated - Date: 2/26//2012 - Responses: 984 Likely GOP voters - Margin of Error: ± 3.12%
And here’s what Arizona voters had to say:Type: Automated - Date: 2/26//2012 - Responses: 1,162 Likely GOP voters - Margin of Error: ± 2.87%
It appears that Mitt Romney has Arizona tucked away…Michigan may be another story. While Romney has pulled out all the stops in his home state and seems poised for a come-from-behind victory, Rick Santorum has hung in against an onslaught of negative ads and a few gaffes of his own doing. If Santorum loses by a close margin, many will question Romney’s ability to close the ultimate deal after a less-than-stellar showing in the Wolverine State.
Of course, many of those saying that will be Santorum, Gingrich and Paul.
