Santorum is Hot on Romney’s Tail

According to a recent poll, it looks like the numbers gap between the two candidates has all but closed, with the possibility that Santorum is taking the lead over Romney:

Rick Santorum has pulled slightly ahead of Mitt Romney in Republican primary voters’ preference for the presidential nomination, a national CBS News/New York Times Poll shows.

Santorum has the support of 30 percent of GOP primary voters in the poll, following by Romney at 27 percent. Ron Paul is now in third at 12 percent, followed by Newt Gingrich at 10 percent.

Just three points over Romney, Santorum’s lead in the national survey is within the poll’s margin of error.

Santorum has been nipping at Romneybot’s heels since his victories in last week’s caucuses; whether Skynet will choose to send cyborg assassins from the future to eliminate the threat is uncertain.

Regardless of what happens, Mittensus will have to change his strategy and attempt to appeal to Santorum’s base: the uneducated, the evangelical poor, and various sewer mutants. At the very least, we’ll be in for some amusement as Romney tackles tent revivals and boat shows in a vain effort to lock up Santorum supporters:

“I say, young man–what moniker is this fried confection called by? And would you object terribly to wiping your mouth before you speak to me?”
