45% Santorum
33% Obama

44% Romney
35% Obama

NBP released Friday the results of a poll it conducted between Feb. 15-17. Officials say they selected registered South Dakota voters are random. The question on choosing a GOP candidate drew 302 responses, with a margin of error of 5.64 percent. The question on a head-to-head race drew 559 responses, with a margin of error of 4.15 percent.

If the Dakota's are even remotely close, it'll be a great night for Obama and co.

Split the difference 50-50 (which may be charitable for Republicans), and President Obama loses the state 55-45, which is little worse than he did in SD in 2008. I doubt that the President will make many appearances in South Dakota because it will have only one nationally-important  contested race (the at-large House seat -- and that is now tied).

Why the high undecided rate?

Most pollsters ask undecided voters which way they're leaning, and include this in the top-line; it's called pushing.  A lot of crappy pollsters, especially university ones, do not, and end up with absurdly high undecided rates.
