MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAU) – Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has lost his lead over rival Mitt Romney in the latest Marquette Law School poll.

The former Massachusetts governor now leads the former Pennsylvania senator 39-to-31 percent.

It was only a month ago when Santorum had a 16-point lead over Romney in the same survey. The new figures come on the heels of a Rasmussen poll last week which also showed Santorum trailing Romney by 13 points.

Meanwhile, the Marquette poll showed that neither Santorum nor Romney would beat President Obama in a head-to-head matchup. Of 707 voters polled over the last week, Obama led Romney 48-to-33 percent, and the president led Santorum 51-to-39 percent.

Santorum returned to Wisconsin today, telling about 100 people in Beaver Dam that he has a quote, “secret weapon” of people willing to vote for him next Tuesday. Santorum vowed today to quote, “turn this race right back around.”

Santorum continued his attacks on Romney and the health care bill he passed as governor of Massachusetts. And the former senator slammed Obama for the recent “hot microphone” incident in which he asked Russia’s president to quote, “give me space” in solving missile defense concerns.

Santorum said he interpreted “give me space” to mean, quote, “Don’t push me too hard until my election because after my election I’ll be happy … happy to throw our allies under the bus and negotiate away a missile defense system for our allies, for our country, for our security.” Santorum also planned a stop in Janesville today.

The other three GOP hopefuls and Vice President Joe Biden are due into the Badger State later this week.
