Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research conducted a research study of likely Republican primary voters across the state of Texas. Respondents were screened to ensure that they were neither a member of the news media or a public relations company. The sample for this survey was stratified based on gender, age, and geography. This methodology allows us to minimize post-survey “weighting” which can reduce the reliability of survey results.

Respondents were contacted by phone via a live telephone operator interview March 11th – 13th 2012. The study has a sample size of 750 likely Republican primary voters in Texas with a margin of error of ±3.6%.


  • The question was asked, “If the Republican primary election for United States President were held today, for whom would you vote if the candidates were RANDOMIZE Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul ?”
    • Rick Santorum           35%
    • Mitt Romney              27%
    • Newt Gingrich            20%
    • Ron Paul                       8%
    • Undecided                  10%
