Support for Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul’s bid for president plunging.
A poll conducted by the New York Times and CBS News finds former
Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, the former
Massachusetts governor, leading the field of Republican candidates. In
the new poll, 30 percent of Republican primary voters say they support
Mr. Santorum, compared with 27 percent for Mr. Romney.
The poll finds two two other major candidates are far behind, at 12
percent for Mr. Paul and just 10 percent for former House Speaker Newt
Gingrich, who has vowed to remain in the race for president. Mr.
Gingrich’s numbers have fallen sharply since his win in South Carolina
on January 21.
The poll is the latest indication that support for Mr. Paul and Mr.
Gingrich is waning. A series of recently released polls finds Mr.
Santorum and Mr. Romney well ahead of the rest
