      Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted February 29, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.
      Inside the numbers:
      Obama earns overwhelming Democratic support against both Republicans. Yet while Romney captures 85% of the GOP vote in the state, only 60% of these voters favor Santorum. Among voters not affiliated with either political party, Romney leads Obama 49% to 43% and Santorum edges the incumbent 46% to 42%.

      The president holds a sizable lead over both GOP hopefuls among female voters in Massachusetts but is nearly tied with Romney and trails Santorum by five points among male voters.
