MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new poll suggests Newt Gingrich has an edge on Mitt Romney among Minnesota’s republican caucus voters.
The poll, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling, says the Republican presidential hopeful has a 2-to-1 lead on the next closest contender, Mitt Romney.
The Public Policy Polling figures, which were collected on Jan. 21 and 22, suggest 36 percent would vote for Gingrich, compared to 18 percent for Romney, 17 percent for Rick Santorum and 13 percent for Ron Paul.
Fifteen percent of voters said they remain undecided, and of the rest, nearly two-thirds say they could change their minds before Minnesota’s caucus, which is set for Feb. 7.
Romney won the Minnesota caucus in 2008. He was eventually beaten out for the nomination by Sen. John McCain.
