Here:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Santorum with 39% support to the former Massachusetts governor’s 27%. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich follows from a distance with 15% of the vote, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul runs last with 10%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

But

After all, 64% of likely primary voters nationwide still think Romney ultimately will win the Republican nomination, although that’s down from 75% a week ago. Just 18% see Santorum as the GOP nominee, but that’s up from three percent (3%) in the previous survey. Still, only 45% are certain of their vote at this time. Forty-nine percent (49%) say they could yet change their minds, and six percent (6%) have no initial preference.

    Q: “York County was recently in the news for a lawsuit involving the teaching of intelligent design. What’s your attitude regarding the teaching of evolution in public schools?”

    A: “I’m a Christian, and I believe in parents being able to provide children with religious instruction without interference from the state. But I also believe our schools are there to teach worldly knowledge and science. I believe in evolution, and I believe there’s a difference between science and faith. That doesn’t make faith any less important than science. It just means they’re two different things. And I think it’s a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don’t hold up to scientific inquiry.” Barack Obama

    “I believe that God designed the universe and created the universe,” Mr. Romney said in an interview this week. “And I believe evolution is most likely the process he used to create the human body.”

    He was asked: Is that intelligent design?

    “I’m not exactly sure what is meant by intelligent design,” he said. “But I believe God is intelligent and I believe he designed the creation. And I believe he used the process of evolution to create the human body.”

    While governor of Massachusetts, Mr. Romney opposed the teaching of intelligent design in science classes.

    “In my opinion, the science class is where to teach evolution, or if there are other scientific thoughts that need to be discussed,” he said. “If we’re going to talk about more philosophical matters, like why it was created, and was there an intelligent designer behind it, that’s for the religion class or philosophy class or social studies
    class.” Mitt Romney

    “I believe evolution should be taught as science, and intelligent design should be taught as philosophy. Francis Collins’s new book, The Language of God, is a fine statement that combines a belief in God with a belief in evolution. I do not know enough about the Dover case to critique the judge’s decision, but I am generally cautious about unelected judges establishing community standards—that is the duty of elected officials.” Newt Gingrich

    Ron Paul?

    “Paul promotes letting states decide most matters dealt with by the national government, and thinks climate change is a hoax, and advocates stopping interference with religion’s influence in government, including the teaching of intelligent design over evolution.”
