Bookmark and Share

Polls show the competition for the GOP presidential nomination is stiff in both Michigan and Arizona, but in South Dakota, one candidate has a wide lead.

Mitt Romney leads the group of candidates with 33 percent of the vote from South Dakota voters who are registered Republicans, according to Nielsen Brothers Polling. Rick Santorum comes in second place in the state, with 24 percent from the same group of voters.

Ron Paul, who led the company's December poll, now comes in tied for third with Newt Gingrich, with 9 percent of the vote for each. Polls officials say 26 percent of registered Republican voters remain undecided.

In the same poll, voters were asked to make their choice in a head-to-head contest between President Obama and Romney and Santorum. Their results show Romney leading Obama 44 percent to 35 percent about all registered voters polled, with 21 percent undecided. Santorum also leads Obama in South Dakota, 45 percent to 33 percent, with 22 percent undecided.

South Dakota's primary election will be held June 5.

NBP released Friday the results of a poll it conducted between Feb. 15-17. Officials say they selected registered South Dakota voters are random. The question on choosing a GOP candidate drew 302 responses, with a margin of error of 5.64 percent. The question on a head-to-head race drew 559 responses, with a margin of error of 4.15 percent.
