Santorum Ahead in Tennessee

Tennessee doesn’t vote until March 6, Super Tuesday, but voters there are already leaning toward Rick Santorum. The former Pennsylvania senator has a lead of 34 percent to 27 percent over Mitt Romney, according to a recent poll in the state by American Research Group. Only 16 percent of likely Republican voters in Tennessee support Newt Gingrich, and just 13 percent are in favor of Ron Paul. Support for Santorum was even greater among voters in favor of the Tea Party movement.
