PPP: Romney Headed For Big Victory In Illinois GOP Primary

The Land of Lincoln's suburban electorate should give Romney a statement win over Santorum in the Midwest on Tuesday, says Dem polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP)

Mitt Romney is headed for a blowout victory in Illinois on Tuesday. He leads with 45% to 30% for Rick Santorum, 12% for Newt Gingrich, and 10% for Ron Paul.

Romney's particularly strong among voters who live in suburban areas (50-29) and with those who live in urban areas (46-23). But he's even running slightly ahead of Santorum, 38-36, with folks who identify as living in rural parts and that strength with a group of voters he hasn't tended to do that well with is why he's looking at such a lopsided margin of victory.
