The news is good for Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich and bad for Rick Santorum in PPP's final polls of the three biggest Super Tuesday states.
In Ohio Romney leads with 37% to 36% for Santorum, 15% for Gingrich, and 11% for Ron Paul.
In Tennessee Santorum leads with 34% to 29% for Romney, 27% for Gingrich, and 8% for Paul.
In Georgia Gingrich leads with 47% to 24% for Romney, 19% for Santorum, and 8% for Paul.
A week ago Santorum had a huge lead in Tennessee, a decent sized one in Ohio, and seemed like he had a good chance for second in Georgia. Now he's barely holding on in Tennessee, ever so slightly behind in Ohio, and seems doomed for third in Georgia.
Romney's fortunes have swung the other direction. What was looking like a runner up finish in Ohio is looking more like a win with each passing day. He has an outside chance at pulling off an upset win in Tennessee. And it looks like he'll finish a solid second in Georgia.
The news for Gingrich is good too. It's been expected he would win Georgia, but it looks now like he could even hit the 50% mark. And he's pulled within striking distance of Santorum and Romney in Tennessee.
Here's the breakdown on each individual state:
-In Tennessee Santorum's saving grace may end up being early voters. 25% of the electorate has already voted and with those folks he's at 39% to 32% for Romney and 23% for Gingrich. Also working to Santorum's considerable advantage in Tennessee is that we find an electorate that is 66% Evangelicals, and they support Santorum 39-27 over Gingrich with Romney at 25%. As in Ohio, the late momentum is on Romney's side. He's up 38-34 on Santorum with those who've decided in the last few days or the last week, so if that continues on through Tuesday he'll have some chance at the upset.
-In Georgia Gingrich is basically winning every group of the electorate. 66% of Republicans in the state have a favorable opinion of him to only 27% with a negative one. And although he now lives in Virginia, he's still embraced as a native son. 71% of voters consider him to be a Georgian to only 22% who do not.
