(CNN) - With two days to go until Super Tuesday, it's all knotted up in Tennessee's Republican presidential primary, according to a new poll.
An American Research Group survey released Sunday indicates that 35% of likely GOP primary voters in the state are backing former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, with 31% supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 20% backing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and 9% supporting Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. Santorum's four point advantage is within the poll's sampling error, which means it's basically all tied up.
