DETROIT — A new poll indicates Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney are about even in Michigan.
The phone poll of 500 registered voters likely to participate in the state's Feb. 28 GOP primary showed Santorum with 34 percent and Romney with 30 percent.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had support from 12 percent of respondents, ex-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul had 9 percent and 12 percent was undecided.
The poll was conducted Saturday through Monday by Glengariff Group Inc. and commissioned by The Detroit News, WDIV-TV and WZZM-TV. It was released this week and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
