Romney Leads Santorum In Vermont Primary Poll

There is some big news with regards to the upcoming Super Tuesday primary here in Vermont. The state now has its very own polling institute. This is big new! The institute is out of Castleton. The first poll from the Castleton Polling Institute shows that Mitt Romney leads Rick Santorum in the state by 7%. What is more, Romney’s supporters are very firm in their support while 55% of Santorum’s supporters say that they could change their mind in the next week.

63% of those who describe themselves as “very conservative” say that they will vote for Santorum. Romney’s supporters are most likely to be moderates. Only 7% of Vermonters see themselves as conservative.

Vermont’s registered voters favor President Barack Obama in the head-to-head race rather heavily. Obama leads Romney by 26%, Santorum by 28%, Ron Paul by 30% and Newt Gingrich by 42%.

47% of Vermonters believe that Mitt Romney has the best chance of defeating Obama in the general election, and the economy is their biggest concern with the deficit being secondary. Social issues are not on the minds of Vermonters. In Vermont, Obama’s approval rating is 56%, while nationally, it is 45%.

A large majority of Vermonters support a constitutional amendment reversing Citizens United. 76% of Vermonters support the amendment. 57% of Republicans in the state do so, which is a significant number.
