With strong support from men and conservatives, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum leads the Ohio GOP presidential field with 36 percent of likely Republican primary voters, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 29, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. But 45 percent of voters say they might change their mind.

This is unchanged from the results of a Feb. 15 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University.

Today’s results show former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 17 percent and Texas Congressman Ron Paul with 11 percent of likely Republican primary voters.

Santorum tops Romney 38-25 percent among men, while women split 34-33 percent. Santorum wins 40-25 percent among self-identified conservatives and 49-19 percent among tea party members. Self-identified moderates back Romney 39- 27 percent.

“A week out, Sen. Rick Santorum remains seven points ahead among Ohio’s likely Republican primary voters. While almost half the voters say they might change their mind, Santorum supporters seem a little surer of their vote,” said Peter A. Brown assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “What happens in Michigan tomorrow night might have an impact on voters in Ohio’s Republican primary.”

From February 23-26, Quinnipiac University surveyed 847 Ohio likely Republican primary voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, and the nation as a public service and for research.
