A Republican candidate leads Obama

Rasmussen's latest tracking poll shows that there is a Republican candidate who leads Barack Hussein Obama. It's not Mitt Romney and it's not Newt Gingrich. It's Rick Santorum (Hat Tip: Sunlight via Bret Baier and The Weekly Standard).
In a potential Election 2012 matchup, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is at 45% while President Obama earns 44%. This is the first time in any poll that Santorum has led the president. Several other GOP challengers have led the president a single time in the polls including Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Newt Gingrich. Each man briefly held the lead while they were surging in the polls, only to fall quickly. It remains to be seen what will happen to Santorum’s support. [...]

Only one GOP candidate has led the president in more than one poll and that’s former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. At the moment, however, he is behind. The latest daily numbers show President Obama at 47% and Romney at 43% (see tracking history). These matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).
Hmmm. Check back with Rasmussen in a few hours for Sunday's poll.
