In the latest sign that Mitt Romney’s road to the Republican presidential nomination could get rocky, a new PPP (D) survey shows the former Massachusetts governor nursing a razor-thin lead over Rick Santorum in Arizona.  Like Michigan, the Grand Canyon State’s winner-take-all primary will be held on February 28, a potentially watershed day in the GOP’s race for president.

PPP’s statewide survey of likely Arizona primary voters shows Romney narrowly edging Santorum, 36 percent to 33 percent. Newt Gingrich claims the support of 16 percent of respondents, while Ron Paul comes in fourth with 9 percent. 

Many viewed Arizona as a buffer for Romney against a potential setback in Michigan, where he was born and raised.
