Public Policy Polling has released a new poll that was conducted over the weekend. It shows Newt Gingrich leading the Republican field in Mississippi going into tomorrow’s primary contest.
- Gingrich, 33%
- Romney, 31%
- Santorum, 27%
- Paul, 7%
Polls last week showed the former House Speaker with a similar lead, but it’s a good sign for Gingrich supporters to see these numbers holding up over the weekend.
The same poll showed Gingrich’s favorability at 58%, with Mitt Romney’s rating at only 53% amongst likely Alabama GOP voters. In Mississippi, Gingrich’s favorability hits 62%, compared to Romney’s 51%.
