A new poll shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has is leading in Ohio going into to the all-important Super Tuesday.
 
The Quinnipiac University survey shows Romney inching ahead of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in the Buckeye State with 34 percent of the vote.
    
Santorum has 31 percent, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has 12 percent.

Romney and Santorum spent Monday in Ohio making their final pitches to voters.
     
Romney is working to make the race more about the economy and less about conservative social issues -- a strong point for Santorum.

"I look at this campaign right now and I see a lot of folks all talking about lots of things, but what we need to talk about to defeat Barack Obama is getting good jobs and scaling back the size of government, and that's what I do," Romney said.

Santorum shot back at his wealthy rival, saying the election must be earned - not bought.

"Look into what the candidates have overcome and what they offer to this country - not just what money they have," Santorum told students and supporters at Dayton Christian School. "But where's the soul, where's the conviction, where's the fight?

With a total of 419 delegates at stake Tuesday, Romney leads with 203. He's followed by Santorum, who has 92, Gingrich with 92, and Paul with 25. About 1,144 are required to win the nomination.
