Newt Gingrich - 16%
Ron Paul - 11%
Undecided - 3%

Romney has regained the lead, has he? Sort of. The pollsters add that 16 percent of likely GOP voters have voted in Michigan, and they've broken 49-26 for Romey; half of Republicans have voted in Arizona, breaking 52-22 for Romney. Take them out and Romney's still losing Michigan.
