Santorum leading Romney among women and independents in Florida

From the Weekly Standard.

Excerpt:

In the biggest prize among November’s swing states, the latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows Rick Santorum faring slightly better than Mitt Romney versus President Obama. In Florida, Santorum trails Obama by 2 percentage points (45 to 43 percent), while Romney trails Obama by 3 points (46 to 43 percent). Florida, by far the largest swing state, now has as many electoral votes as the state of New York (29).

Interestingly, Santorum is faring better than Romney among women in the Sunshine State. Among women, Santorum trails Obama by 11 points (52 to 41 percent), while Romney trails Obama by 13 points (53 to 40 percent). Santorum is also faring better than Romney among independents and among likely voters who make close to the median income. Among independents, Santorum trails Obama by 19 points (50 to 31 percent), while Romney trails Obama by 24 points (55 to 31 percent). Among those making between $40,000 and $60,000, Santorum leads Obama by 4 points (49 to 45 percent), while Romney trails Obama by 3 points (50 to 47 percent).

With 24 states still to come in the GOP race, Romney needs to win about half of the remaining delegates (48.2 percent) to reach the tally of 1,144 delegates necessary to win the Republican nomination.

I notice that the mainstream media, including Fox News, seem to be incapable of telling the truth about Santorum and Romney. Romney is a weak candidate, and he is only competitive with Santorum because he is burning through millions of dollars to pay for television ads. It’s not sustainable.
