PPP reports on its latest Wisconsin presidential primary poll, ahead of tomorrow's election there:

[In Wisconsin] Romney's at 43% to 36% for Santorum, 11% for Paul, and 8% for Gingrich.

Romney's starting to have some success with groups that have generally been key components of Santorum's base over the last two months. For instance he leads with Tea Party voters in both states, 43-34 in Maryland and 46-38 in Wisconsin. He's also becoming more competitive with Evangelical voters, leading 43-36 with them in Maryland and trailing only47-35 with them in Wisconsin. In the states where Santorum's been victorious he's generally won Evangelicals by a much wider margin than that.

Regarding this poll, PPP last night tweeted, "People who decided 'in the last few days' in WI (9% of electorate) go Santorum 52, Romney 27. Makes you wonder how much Ryan mattered."
