Romney polls in near tie with Santorum in Michigan, to apply Trump robo-calls Wednesday

After being as far as 15 points behind Rick Santorum ten days ago, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has clawed back to a near tie in the state he grew up in, Michigan, before voters there head to the primary Tuesday. The Associated Press reports that as the finish line is approaching, the Romney campaign has hit the phone lines with robo-calls from supporter Donald Trump, disparaging rival candidate Rick Santorum as a career politician who doesn't know how to create jobs:

"Mitt Romney's campaign deployed an automated phone call from Trump Wednesday in Michigan, a state that has become a must-win for the former Massachusetts governor. Trump also recorded a Michigan radio ad for Romney.

The real estate mogul and reality show host endorsed Romney earlier this month.

On the call, Trump says he's tired of Santorum 'pretending' to be the outsider in the race. Trump says the former Pennsylvania senator has been entrenched in the Washington culture for decades.

Trump calls Romney a good man who is working hard."

The real estate mogul officially endorsed the presidential campaign of the former Massachusetts governor earlier in the month, introducing Romney before a speech at Trump's luxury hotel in Las Vegas. Whether Trump's endorsement has been a positive or a negative for the Romney campaign is up for debate.
