Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney in an Alabama poll on the eve of the former Pennsylvania senator’s first campaign trip to the state in advance of the primary election there on Tuesday, according to al.com.

Santorum received 22.7 percent, compared with 18.7 percent for the former Massachusetts governor, in the poll, which Alabama State University’s Center for Leadership and Public Policy conducted on March 1. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia received 13.8 percent in the poll, which did not include Rep. Ron Paul.

The poll showed that support for Gingrich has fallen since the university center began tracking the race five weeks ago, said political science professor Thomas Vocino. Gingrich had led the field with 26.9 percent in a Feb. 2 poll.

Santorum picked up Gingrich’s support, Vocino said. Romney’s numbers have remained between 16 percent and 18 percent.

However, the telephone poll of 470 likely Republican voters also shows that 29.8 percent of are undecided on whom they will vote for in the primary. And 15 percent said they intended to support other candidates in the primary.

Santorum is scheduled to make campaign appearances today in Huntsville and Mobile. Gingrich canceled plans in Kansas this week to woo voters in Alabama and Mississippi.
