PPP reports on its latest Michigan poll, released ahead of today's Republican presidential primary:

PPP's final poll in Michigan finds Rick Santorum holding on to the smallest of leads with 38% to 37% for Mitt Romney, 14% for Ron Paul, and 9% for Newt Gingrich.

It's always good to be cautious with one night poll numbers, but momentum seems to be swinging in Santorum's direction. Romney led with those interviewed on Sunday, but Santorum has a 39-34 advantage with folks polled on Monday. The best sign that things have gone back toward Santorum might be that with those polled today who hadn't already voted, Santorum's advantage was 41-31. . .

We've seen a lot of the Republican contests so far shift dramatically in the final week...this has the potential to be the first one that's shifted twice in the final week. It's going to be interesting.
