Commentary
Among ‘Decided’ * Republican Party supporters, 56.5% believe Mitt Romney has the better chance over Rick Santorum (44.5%) to defeat President Barack Obama.
A stunning 57% of ‘Decided’ Republican supporters are of the opinion that Rick Santorum is “most likely to be completely honest with the American people” compared to 43% for Mitt Romney.
Republican supporters in this poll believe that Mitt Romney is more electable but are of the opinion that Rick Santorum is more honest.
Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate who looks like a President might look - in a movie of the President. Also, he is a very successful businessman and has excellent political credentials. He is clearly the front runner and beats Rick Santorum in this survey in terms of who is most likely to beat Barack Obama.
The problem is that Rick Santorum is rising as the Tim Tebow (NFL quarterback) of American politics and his star brand is similarly ascending. He easily defeats Mitt Romney in terms of honesty with the American people -if elected President.
