Mitt Romney Adviser: 'We're Going To Win Michigan'

Posted: Updated:

A few new polls were released on Thursday morning, showing Rick Santorum with a small lead in Michigan. The American Research Group had the former Pennsylvania senator at 38 percent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 34 percent, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) at 12 percent, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 7 percent. Meanwhile, the Detroit Free Press released its own poll, showing Santorum ahead of Romney by a margin of 37 percent to 34 percent.

The numbers were culled from interviews that took place before last night's debate in Arizona, so the dials may have moved since then. But the Romney campaign did not exactly seem eager to downplay expectations on Wednesday night.

"We're going to win Michigan," Romney adviser Stuart Stevens told reporters in the spin room after the debate.
