Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has received a nudge of social media support from News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch. In a tweet this afternoon Murdoch echoed growing sentiments that Santorum has the chance to deal a fatal blow to rival Mitt Romney if polls keep their course and the former Pennsylvania senator wins in the state where Romney grew up and his father was governor. The Australia-born business also commended Santorum for his outspoken stance on "values:"

Mediaite notes that Murdoch previously tweeted a positive sentiment for Santorum in January, writing “Can’t resist this tweet, but all Iowans think about Rick Santorum. Only candidate with genuine big vision for country.”

In RealClearPolitics average polling from 2/11-2/19, Santorum leads Romney in Michigan by 5 points before the state's February 28 primary.
