But, 45% say they could change their vote for March 6th.
(AP) The latest Ohio Republican presidential race poll shows Rick Santorum holding steady with his lead.
The Quinnipiac University poll Monday indicates the former Pennsylvania senator is running ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 36 percent to 29 percent among likely primary voters. That's unchanged from a poll released Feb. 15.
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich was third at 17 percent, with Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 11 percent. The Feb. 23-26 telephone survey interviewed 847 likely Republican voters, with a margin of error of 3.4 points.
Santorum led Romney among men, self-identified conservatives and tea party voters. They ran nearly evenly among women, with self-identified moderates preferring Romney.
