Head-to-head, horse-race polls this far out don’t mean a LOT, but they do show important trends. In that light, behold Rasmussen’s newest, which shows Rick Santorum as the only Republican to beat Obama head to head. This is the latest in a week-long series of polls, from pollsters left, right and center, showing Santorum doing better against Romney than Gingrich or Paul, or better against Obama than Gingrich or Paul and either better or about even with Romney when matched against Obama — or, having a significantly better favorable-to-unfavorable ratio (this IS a significant poll number this far out, unlike a horse-race match-up) than anybody in the GOP field.
Also today, Phyllis Schlafly announced she would vote for Santorum. This follows endorsements or “support” statements in favor of Santorum this week from Michelle Malkin, David Limbaugh, Sharron Angle, Tom Tancredo, Jane Norton, Bob Schaffer, and others.
Not bad for a guy who the establishment media keeps writing off.
