A new poll of registered Republicans in Pennsylvania shows serious erosion in support for Rick Santorum ahead of the April 24 primary there, and it now has him in a statistical tie with Mitt Romney.

According to the Franklin & Marshall College Poll, the former senator from Pennsylvania holds a narrow lead over Mitt Romney, 30 percent to 28 percent, well within the margin of error, a big change from February, when he led 45 percent to 16 percent.

Santorum’s drop in the poll coincides with a decline in his favorable rating, which dipped to 54 percent, down from a February mark of 63 percent. Romney’s favorable ratings have remained more consistent, all in the low to mid-40s over the past three months.

 

In the poll, Rep. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich trailed with 9 percent and 6 percent, respectively.

Santorum's home state is make or break for his underdog campaign. He has some advantages in Pennsylvania, but other factors are working against him.
