In the remarkable race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, it now appears to be a three-way contest among embattled frontrunner Herman Cain, one-time favorite Mitt Romney, and the surging Newt Gingrich.
Poll Positions national scientific survey of Americans saying they plan to vote in the 2012 Republican primary or caucus was conducted Tuesday night as Cain found himself embroiled in a growing controversy over sexual allegations made against him by four women allegations Cain emphatically denies as baseless.
The poll found
24% backing Cain, (actually 24.4%)
20% Romney, (actually 19.5%)
19% Gingrich, (actually 19.0%)
7% Rick Perry,
6% Ron Paul,
4% Michelle Bachmann,
2% Jon Huntsman,
3% someone else, and
15% with no opinion.
These poll results reflect the views of 604 likely Republican primary voters with a margin of error of +/- 4%. The polls full crosstabs are below.

I also weighted the polls by their size. For example, a poll with a survey size of 1000 was weighted proportionately heavier than an 324 survey size.
Romney , or possibly Gingrich will get the nom . Either one will lose to Obama . The fix is in .
Geeez. Slit your wrists right now, then.
Romney will likely lose, but even if he wins, “we” lose.
Not so with our conservative candidates.
We can win with conservatives!
Herman Cain’s view on illegal immigration is the best from a Presidential front runner in my lifetime. He’s been talking about how serious the problem is long before he was running for President, so you at least know he actually believes it’s a serious problem that needs to be fixed. That’s one of the main reasons I’m supporting him. Below is Cain’s position on illegal immigration taken from his website.
Fix the Immigration Problems
America is an exceptional nation. We are also a prosperous nation because of our liberties and our free market system. Thats why people from all over the world want to come to America to create better lives for themselves and their families, because we are truly the land of opportunity.
Americans have embraced their role as the worlds premier melting pot, welcoming immigrants from every corner of the planet. We readily learn about other cultures, customs and beliefs. We appreciate those who are willing to come to this country and make America a more vibrant and enriched place.
Americans do resent, however, the willingness of some to circumvent our laws and enter our nation illegally. While many, if not most, illegal immigrants are peaceful people simply seeking to provide for their families, some are not. In fact, some are quite dangerous, jeopardizing the safety and well-beingwellingwallingwebbingwillingweldingweltingwallowingwelshingWelbiewelkinwallopingWheelingwheelingwhelmingwhelpingwieldingWebernWeylinlobinglubingwalingwilingWelbie’slibbinglobbingvealingveilingvilleinwailingwhalingwhilingwarblingwobbling of American citizens.
Illegal immigration has only exacerbated illegal activity, such as the horrendous crimes of drug smuggling and human trafficking. Illegal immigrants who are repeat offenders are harder to track, making it difficult for law enforcement to prevent crime. Further, weak borders have caused a compounding problem of terrorists assimilating with illegal immigrants, crossing the border with them and entering the U.S.
Illegal immigration also puts a tremendous strain on Americas entitlement and health care systems. Illegal immigrants are typically uninsured and cannot afford to pay for their medical care, driving up costs for all Americans, even those actually insured. In fact, several hospitals in the U.S. have declared bankruptcy as a result of the costs of caring for illegal immigrants.
We must secure our borders, enforce our laws and promote the existing path to citizenship. Protecting our nations sovereignty should be a paramount concern of those elected to lead us, not an afterthought or a reaction once the problem becomes even worse. Further, taking a stand on the issue does not mean one lacks compassion, but instead, that one respects the rule of law and the importance of not becoming a lawless nation.
Those in control don’t WANT a conservative to win . Just look at what they are doing to Cain ? The checked pants elite of the RNC are also involved in my opinion . Cain would rock the boat bigtime - no way they want that .
They can’t maintain control if we don’t let them. Right now it’s in our hands. If we let the elites and the media determine our nominee then we might as well not bother. I refuse to play these games anymore.
Yes, I realize that, but we have our votes and our hard work.
Cain is still ahead and he’s taking in money!
Romney is stuck in GOP-E 25% stupid.
That means 75% don’t want him!
Gringrich would definitely beat Obama; Romney probably so.
...”Geeez. Slit your wrists right now, then.
Romney will likely lose, but even if he wins, we lose.

Ron Paul had the fortitude to call it what it is..A dictatorship..It is here, folks..The vote in Ohio yesterday is a predictor of the future. The Unions rule and they have the money of the world in their stashes. The people are sheep being led to slaughter and those who see and know what is coming are very frightened. It will end sometime in the future after much bloodshed and extreme human misery..May God give the grace for good people to stand, regardless of the cruelties they will face. The Herman Cain case is a child’s preview of what is to come from the heartless and the Godless minions out there in the media. Just remember..We are in the midst of the biggest drug culture the world has ever seen..Drugs take away judgment first and they add a feeling of power and invincibility for the user..Look at the lies and the arrogance coming from your television everyday and then come to your own conclusions, folks.
“But but but, Mr. Tokyo Mr. Tokyo you told us the charges against Herman Cain were credible, HOW can THIS BE Mr. Tokyo?”
The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/
Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and like him. His likes have jumped dramatically since the attacks started. Make no mistake Sean Hannitys BFF Tokyo Rove is watching Hermans likes and so is Romney. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to like Herman as well.
Newt closing in on Romney can only be a good thing.
I’m going with Newt.
Richard Nixon, Geo. HW Bush and Geo W. Bush: none of which ever ran around on their wife. Which one would you like to be president again!
And your screen name cracks me up. There's no time like the present, you know...lol!
I expect the hit pieces on newt to start any day now the establishment can’t have this.
They Effed up trying to chuck shit at Cain. Now he has name recognition not only as the man with a excellent record, but the man who they tried to lynch in public.
All three would kick the hell out of Obama. But of the three, Cain is the most trustworthy.
Lets see the proof you bimbos! Lets see it! You aint got it, and you hired a media whore to get out front. Remember the Kalifornia election? This media slut was right there out in front of the cameras with that one.
No it aint, and Ronald Reagan won back then.
Reagan was the only president in history who divorced.
however now it is glaringly apparent that perry has no chance and it is Gingrich, Cain and Romney.
the problem is that I see Gingrich and Cain splitting the conservative vote while Romney will hold steady with his liberal conservative share.
The question now is who gets that final 5-10% that were still supporting La Raza Rick before his EPIC FAIL last night.
Seriously though - Perry, Bachman, Paul, Huntsman all need to fold the tents and let the final 3 duke it out.
I hate to say it, but you’re going to see the lesser candidates like Bachmann, Huntsman and Santorum all dropping out and throwing their support behind Romney. Perry could also do the same if he drops out, depending how bought and paif for he is.
Cain will get stronger and stronger. God keeps His promises.
in the case of Newt the thing is that we all agree on his political/governmental actions and his public conservative creds —> he’s not going to support gay marriage, abortion for everyone, socialism etc.
I hope Santorum isn’t like that. Bachman has been a biig disappointment.
After the lesser candidates drop out, much of that support will likely go to Romney or Gingrich, because Cain does not have any shred of experience. Gingrich reminds me of McCain in that he is severely underfunded and cannot organize his primary schedule adequately. Which leaves the door wide open for Romney.
Knowing how American politics generally plays out, this is looking more like another disaster with every passing day. I would hope not, but reality is what it is.
I would have thought that Paul would be polling stronger than that graph portrays.
I’ve said this about the “melting pot” concept:
Think of the “melting pot” more like a pot of soup. You can add a lot of things to soup that makes it better, chicken, carrots, celery, noodles, etc.
However, there are certain foods you just can’t add to soup, or it’ll just taste like crap.
I agree...we could have learned a lot more from the front runners if time had not been sucked up with the ones that do not have a chance. I did notice the panel asked Romney more questions than anyone ...get the drift the dems want him to be our candidate.
Newt appears to annoy the media the most..he hits hard. LOL when Maria asked each candidate to respond in 30 secs or less..what they would do after they repealed Obamacare..Newt said, “that is the most absurd question to expect an answer in 30 secs” too complex..well, he made her look like a fool
And now they’re attaching the adjective “embattled” to Herman Cain’s name. I also notice that Romney’s numbers are going down and it seems those numbers are going to Newt.
But I’m a Cain supporter through and through.
Maybe Tokyo Rove wishes someone would claim sexual harrassment against him. It might improve his image.
Perry, Paul, and the also-rans are all history (sorry, Bachmann supporters, maybe in 2016?). It’s down to Cain, Romney, and Newt. While I find Newt revolting, he’s a whole lot better than Romney. The question is whether Cain can survive the media’s dirty tricks. If he can, he’ll be the best choice we have, and the strongest candidate. If not, then Newt could ooze into the nomination as the anti-Romney.
OH how I would love to see Gingrich on a stage with Obama answering questions from the audience. My guess, in the scenario Obama will refuse to debate unless the questions are submitted before the debate.
I am not so sure that Obama could beat Gingrich. But the fix is always in, isn’t it!
Not only that Cain would rock the boat, the real good part is he has no further political ambitions. He lives every day as a blessing from God for his miraculous cure from advanced cancer. I am convinced he is the most likely to act as a statesman and do what is good for this country, and the future generations. Others in the running have big time “political” ambitions.
Gingrich has voted on 1000 bills. That is a lot of baggage.
The time has come for Huntsman, Perry & Bachman to exit the race.
and Romney has signed quite a few
