Reporting from Washington —

President Obama for the first time has opened a sizable lead over his most likely Republican opponents, thanks to growing support among independent voters, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll, released Monday, showed Rick Santorum in a virtual tie with Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race. Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, has moved up as a result of his backing from tea party Republicans and white evangelicals. He led Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, 30% to 28% among Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters in the survey, which was conducted Feb. 8-12 and had a margin of error of 5 percentage points. In a Pew survey only a month ago, Romney led Santorum, 31% to 14%.

But both Republicans trailed Obama by sizable margins. Obama led Santorum by 10 points among registered voters nationwide (53%-43%) and led Romney by eight points (52%-44%). Obama’s lead over Newt Gingrich, who has faded in the GOP race, was 18 points (57%-39%). In previous polls in November and January, Romney and Obama were roughly tied. Obama has moved up because of support from independent voters, 51% of whom now back him against Romney, a gain of 11 points since last month.

The latest poll by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press was conducted among 1,172 registered voters nationwide. It found that Santorum has become the clear favorite of tea party supporters and white evangelical Republicans. He wins support from 42% of tea party Republican voters compared with just 23% who back Romney. Santorum’s margin among white evangelical Republican voters was almost the same, 41% to 23%.

A major factor driving the Santorum surge is that an increasing number of tea party Republicans do not believe Romney is a strong conservative, the poll showed. Only 29% of Republican and Republican-leaning voters who agree with the tea party say Romney is a strong conservative, a steep drop from 51% three months ago. More than two-thirds of tea party Republicans (68%) now say Romney is not a strong conservative.

it would be incredible if Santorum would be the nominee.

he seems *so* easy to distract with 1960s issues like birth control and women in the military. and the Tea "we're only about economic issues and especially debt and spending issues" Party seems to love it.

please GOP, continue to discuss social issues. you become ever more unelectable every time you do.

I agree. Though.......

Part of me is scared to death that we (being the american people) would even put someone like Santorum this close to the Presidency. While I think deep down we know Obama would wipe the floor with him.....it's that little bit of doubt that frightens me.

But he couldn't even keep his own seat in Washington, losing by the largest margin ever (maybe???), so the odds are he'll continue on about controlling woman and demonizing sex and completely lose the Independent/Moderate base....which is what wins the election

Obama would taunt and bait him with just about every social issue imaginable, and what Rick does is not just say "here's my beliefs" which is all smart social conservatives do anyway, but he goes further and says "here's why you should live like i do and here's what i'm going to do in order to make it so that you have no other legal choice but to do so."

what's also funny is that Rick seems to genuinely have *no idea* how utterly patronizing he is to women who aren't religious social conservatives. every time he opens his mouth he loses another suburban mother.

Weird...

Rick Santorum says women shouldn't serve in combat, but he's happy to have his wife jump on a grenade for him. When ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked the presidential candidate about a passage of his 2005 book -- "The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness" -- Santorum claimed his wife wrote the passage. But as The New York Times' Brian Knowlton points out, Karen Santorum's name isn't on the cover of the It Takes a Family, and she's not listed in his acknowledgments of people "who assisted me in the writing of this book."

She should've asked if that's the method he and his wife used to limit themselves to four, or if their sex life was just that bad.

It would be so hilarious if the economy continued to improve through November and Santorum was the Republican nominee and was mostly arguing social issues.

Wow, who ARE these Neanderthals??

Quote:
Appearing of MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today, Foster Friess, the main donor to the Super PAC backing Rick Santorum’s presidential bid, dismissed the controversy surrounding President Obama’s new birth control rule by suggesting that women should just keep their legs shut. Asked if he worried that Santorum’s Puritanical views on sex and social issues could hurt the candidate in the general election, Friess offered a more home-spun family planning scheme:

FRIESS: On this contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so inexpensive. You know, back in my days, they used Baer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.

Just a certain kind of old white guy who came of age in the 50s and isn't much in touch with current social culture, tends to refer to women as "gals" and "broads" and effects a characteristic fake-jovial manner to soften his paternalism. I've known quite a few...


ETA -- haha, I just remembered something. Didn't Palin herself call Santorum a "knuckle-dragging Neanderthal" last time around?
