Mitt Romney has taken a narrow lead over GOP rival Rick Santorum, according to a new CNN/Time/ORC International poll released on Tuesday.

The poll, which was conducted with 467 likely Arizona Republican primary voters, shows Romney with 36 percent and Santorum with 32 percent. The poll’s margin of error was four points, meaning that the two candidates ran almost neck and neck in the survey.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich came in third at 18 percent, while Texas Congressman Ron Paul finished last at six percent. It should be noted that nearly one-third of those who were surveyed said they may change their vote before the state’s primary contest on February 28.

All four candidates are scheduled to participate in a CNN debate in Mesa, Arizona tomorrow night at 8:00 pm eastern.
