Mitt Romney Leads Herman Cain and 2012 GOP Field in Florida
A CNN/Time poll released on Wednesday found former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts leading the pack of Republican presidential candidates in the crucial battleground of Florida -- the fourth state in line to determine who the GOP will nominate to take on President Barack Obama in 2012.
Romney takes 30 percent in Florida while businessman Herman Cain, who won the Presidency 5 straw poll in Orlando last month, stands in second place with 18 percent. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry are locked in a tie for third with 9 percent each. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas takes fifth with 6 percent followed by U.S. Rep Michele Bachmann of Minnesota with 4 percent. Former Gov. Jon Huntsman and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania lag behind with 1 percent each.
The poll of 401 Republican voters in Florida was taken Oct. 20-25 and had a margin of error of +/- 5 percent.
