Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania has a commanding lead among Republican presidential candidates in Texas, according to a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll.

Santorum would get the votes of 45 percent of the respondents if the election were held today, according to the survey. The other three candidates in the GOP race — former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas — are clustered well behind. Gingrich got 18 percent, Romney received 16 percent and Paul garnered 14 percent.

Total, complete, absolute separation of church and state...the Constitution allows for all expressions of faith beliefs in this country, but in government, the business of the people is just that...the BUSINESS of the people...legislators may address decisions guided by their personal beliefs of fairness, compassion, and servant-leadership, but may not move the US in the direction of a theocracy...don't kid yourself for one minute...saintorium would do this in a heartbeat. OBAMA 11/6/2012.

Santorum is almost as radical in the Christian faith as some Musiims are in Islam. Can't we find someone who is not a religious nut?

I no more believe in the credibility of these meda polls then I do cows fly over the moon. Without any validation the reader is asked to take for garnted the stated outcome...a worthless and meaningless media report meant only to sway the opinion of the uninformed. Ask any woman if they think Santorum is a viable candidate with his stance on womens rights. Ask any fiscal reponsible republican if they agree with Santorums tax and spend past. With our primary delayed, Texas media ignores Ron Paul.

This is no surprise. Santorum sounds like an extremist right wing religious freak. He should be in a church pulpit and not for political high office. I hope he does get the nomination though, because only those with extreme religious views would vote for him. Moderates or independents , and more sane and reasonable Republicans will run from him.

Voters need to realize that they are being manipulated by religion to vote for the establishment candidate. When Rick Perry washed out as the pseudo- Christian warrior, the GOP of Texas allowed their primary vote date to get pushed back to a national hoiiday while they advertise Santorum to take his spot. The medias move into politics by religion destroys the unity of our nation. I love my country, I worship God and my neighbor is free to do the same if he wants. Ron Paul says personal liberty
