Romney was followed by Rick Santorum at 14 percent, Newt Gingrich at 9 percent, Rick Perry at 5 percent, Ron Paul at 4 percent and Jon Huntsman at 2 percent.

A quarter of Republicans were undecided.

The survey of 553 registered voters statewide was conducted Jan. 5-9.

It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points among all voters who were surveyed.

The margin for the subgroup of Republican voters is at plus or minus 7 percentage points.

Arizona’s Republican primary is set for Feb. 28.
