Polls Offer Good News For Gingrich, Romney and Santorum

Posted By on Sun, Mar 4, 2012 at 6:15 PM

A string of new polls released Sunday morning indicate that Super Tuesday should live up to its hype. In fact, the polls offered good news to each of the campaigns for Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

A Mason-Dixon survey gave Gingrich the lead in Georgia by 14 percentage points over Mitt Romney. An NBC News poll said Romney had a commanding 43 percentage point lead over Ron Paul in Virginia (neither Gingrich nor Santorum will be on the Virginia ballot). A separate NBC News poll gave Santorum a 2 percentage point lead in Ohio and Santorum was also leading in a Rasmussen Report poll in Tennessee, which gave the former Pennsylvania senator a 4 percentage point lead.

A jackpot of delegates are up for grabs on Tuesday, as Idaho joins nine other states in caucuses or primaries:

Alaska - caucuses - 27 delegates
Georgia - primary - 76 delegates
Idaho -caucuses - 32 delegates
Massachusetts - primary - 41 delegates
North Dakota - caucuses - 28 delegates
Ohio - primary - 66 delegates
Oklahoma - primary - 43 delegates
Tennessee - primary - 58 delegates
Vermont - primary - 17 delegates
Virginia - primary - 49 delegates
