Romney has received a bump in two polls in Michigan, taking a 6-point lead over Rick Santorum in the same poll that he trailed the former Pennsylvania senator by 4 points earlier in the week. That 10-point swing was boosted by another poll that said one in 10 Michiganders changed their minds after Wednesday-night’s debate, 27 percent of them saying they switched allegiance to the former Massachusetts governor. The same poll, conducted by Mitchell Research and Communications, saw one third of participants saying Romney was the winner of the debate compared to just 13 percent for Santorum.
