    Poll: Santorum surges, Obama leads Republicans
    By JENNIFER AGIESTA and LAURIE KELLMAN | Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A surging Rick Santorum is running even with Mitt Romney atop the Republican presidential field, but neither candidate is faring well against President Barack Obama eight months before Americans vote, a new survey shows.

    "The Associated Press-GfK Poll was conducted Feb. 16-20 by GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications. It involved telephone interviews with 1,000 adults nationwide and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points."

    "The GfK Group, established in 1934 as Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (Society for Consumer Research) is Germany's largest market research institute, and the fifth largest market research organisation in the world, after Nielsen Company, Kantar Group, Ipsos (incl. Synovate) and IMS Health. It was founded by an association of university teachers, among them Ludwig Erhard, later Minister for Economics and Chancellor of Germany."

    What are the actual numbers? No where anywhere does it say.

    Another skewed poll IMHO


    "...random sample of 1,000 adults, including 450 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents"

    "There are other sources of potential error in polls, including the wording and order of questions."

    "The margin of sampling error for Republicans and Republican-leaning independents is plus or minus 6.2 percentage points."
