Ohio polls show Mitt Romney gaining, Rick Santorum volatile

at 11:46 AM ET, 03/06/2012

Today we’re running through the final polls in the most important Super Tuesday states — Ohio, Oklahoma, Georgia and Tennessee.

Polls in Ohio show a race between former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania governor Rick Santorum that’s too close to call.

But a look at polling over the past two weeks in this crucial Super Tuesday state shows that Romney has been steadily gaining while Santorum’s numbers have fluctuated.

Take a look:

While Romney moved up from the mid-twenties to the mid-thirties, Santorum sunk from the high to the mid-thirties, although he appears to have rebounded in a Suffolk University poll released Monday.

That said, every poll taken this month has the two candidates within or just on the edge of the margin of error. So while Romney appears to have the momentum, Ohio will still be a nailbiter.
