Plum City, WI — Rick Santorum is running even with Mitt Romney atop the Republican presidential field, but neither candidate is faring well against President Barack Obama seven months before Americans vote, a new survey shows, as an 'unknown rider' emerges on the horizon. Little is known regarding Wisconsin's 'unknown rider' other than he has a birth certificate, graduated from Punahou School, and has taken 4 oaths to protect America from all enemies; foreign or domestic, gay or bi-sexual. Obama tops 50 percent support when matched against each of the four "Soros approved' GOP candidates and holds a significant lead over each of them, according to the Associated Press-GfK poll, but fears having his lunch handed to him by the 'new guy'.
Republicans, meanwhile, are divided on whether they'd rather see Romney or former Pennsylvania senator Santorum capture the nomination, with Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul lagging behind. That all changed on 17 March when Wisconsin sent Presidential Field into the mix. It's a troubling sign for the better-funded Romney as the GOP race finally has a breath of fresh air in the abel linguist and subject of a recent patriotic-Christian parade in Canton, Texas.
