PPP Arizona Republican Primary poll: Mitt Romney 43%, Rick Santorum 26%, Newt Gingrich 18%, Ron Paul 11%

mccain-romneyWell, it looks like Arizona is in the bag more Mitt Romney. This state’s primary is winner take all for delegates like Florida’s primary, so coming in second, third or fourth in Arizona’s primary means nothing. A recent Rasmussen poll of the Arizona Republican Primary showed Mitt Romney with a thirteen point lead on Santorum. The left wing PPP poll shows an even bigger lead for Romney at seventeen percent, and that was before Arizona Governor Jan Brewer endorsed Romney on Meet the Press. Based on this poll, and the earlier Michigan primary poll, it looks like there’s nothing to look forward to until the weekend with Washington state’s caucus and then Super Tuesday.

You can make a fair argument that Romney’s already won the Arizona primary. Almost half of those planning to vote have already cast their ballots, and Romney has a 48-25 advantage over Santorum with those folks. That lead makes it nearly impossible for Santorum to make up the difference on election day, and Romney has a 39-27 advantage with those planning to vote on Tuesday anyway.
