The poll was conducted Wednesday and Thursday, almost entirely before the CNN/Republican Party of Florida Debate in Jacksonville.
The two frontrunners dueled on stage Thursday night over a number of issues, including immigration, which is widely expected to be a focal point of the Arizona contest.
According to the ARG survey, 12% said they would back Texas Rep. Ron Paul, while 10% said they would support former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania. Twelve percent said they were undecided.
Among those who identified themselves as tea party supporters, Gingrich held a 40%-23% advantage over Romney. Meanwhile, Romney led Gingrich among woman with a 34%-28% margin.
Arizona comes after primaries and caucuses in Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota, Maine and Missouri, but before March 6, also known as Super Tuesday, when 10 states are scheduled to hold contests.
The American Research Group conducted the survey and questioned 600 likely Republican primary voters in Arizona by telephone Jan 25-26, with a sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points.
