Rasmussen (R) Illinois 2012 GOP Primary Poll
  • Mitt Romney 41%
  • Rick Santorum 32%
  • Newt Gingrich 14%
  • Ron Paul 7%
If the 2012 Republican Primary for president were held today and you only had a choice between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, for whom would you vote?
  • Mitt Romney 48%
  • Rick Santorum 44%
Survey of 750 likely voters was conducted March 15, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.
Inside the numbers:
Given that 32% of voters could still change their mind before Tuesday, this represents a potential opportunity for Santorum. Most Gingrich supporters (55%) say they could still change their mind, and they overwhelmingly prefer Santorum over Romney in a two-man race.

Fifty percent (50%) of Illinois primary voters see Romney as the strongest general election candidate, while 24% say the same of Santorum.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) believe Romney is at least somewhat likely to defeat President Obama and 54% say the same of Santorum. Most (53%) think Gingrich is unlikely to win in November and 79% believe it is unlikely Paul could defeat the president.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) have a favorable opinion of Romney and 67% offer positive reviews for Santorum. The favorable numbers for Gingrich and Paul are 53% and 36%, respectively.
