A new NBC News/Marist Poll shows Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney leading his chief rival Rick Santorum 40 percent to 33 percent among likely voters in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul places third with 11 percent support, followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 8 percent support. And 7 percent of respondents are undecided. The poll has a 3.6-percentage-point margin of error.

Other recent polls in Wisconsin show former Massachusetts Gov. Romney ahead of former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum by 5 to 8 percentage points.

Romney leads Santorum among liberal and moderate Republicans, 43 percent to 24 percent; among conservatives, 42 percent to 33 percent; among non-tea partyers, 42 percent to 31 percent; and among those who earn $75,000 or more annually, 47 percent to 32 percent.

Santorum is ahead among very conservative voters, 42 percent to 33 percent; strong tea party backers, 40 percent to 32 percent; and evangelical Christians, 40 percent to 29 percent.

As for the general election, President Barack Obama leads Romney among all registered voters in Wisconsin 52 percent to 35 percent, and the president leads Santorum 51 percent to 38 percent. To be sure, 13 percent are undecided in the Obama-Romney race and 11 percent in the Obama-Santorum contest, so the GOP nominee could catch up.
