HARTFORD, Conn.—A new poll from Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with a commanding lead in Connecticut's upcoming Republican presidential primary.

The survey, released Thursday, shows Romney with 42 percent of the vote. He's followed by former Sen. Rick Santorum with 19 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 13 percent and Rep. Ron Paul with 9 percent.

Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York and Rhode Island are holding GOP primaries on April 24.

In a potential match-up between Romney and Democratic President Barack Obama, Obama wins with 53 percent of the vote, compared to Romney's 37 percent.

The survey of 1,622 registered voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points. The poll includes 429 Republicans and that margin is 4.7 percentage points.
