Republican presidential candidate, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum greets people during a campaign rally at the Dayton Christian School on March 5, 2012 in Miamisburg, Ohio.

Forget the polls, Rick Santorum is already an Ohio primary winner in his own mind. Speaking to ABC News Monday, the Republican presidential hopeful said voters are starting to see that Mitt Romney’s “values are not the values of the Republican Party.” Despite the fact that Santorum’s poll numbers in the key Super Tuesday state have taken a dip in the last week, he still declared: “We’re winning. Whether we end up with the most votes or not [in Ohio], we’re winning.” While Romney and Santorum are nearly neck-and-neck in the state, the former Massachusetts governor claims a slight lead ahead of tomorrow’s election.
