Cain Leads CBS Poll, Americans Watching Closely

A recent national CBS News poll shows businessman Herman Cain leading the pack of 2012 GOP Presidential hopefuls as Americans begin to pay closer attention to the primary race.

The poll, released Tuesday, shows Cain gathering support from 25 percent of Republican primary voters followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21 percent. The most recent numbers, tabulated Oct. 19-24, show Cain edging past Romney, with whom he was tied at 17 percent support earlier in the month.

According to the poll’s results, much of Cain’s support comes from Tea Party members, with 32 percent of the group behind his message. Romney has held at a steady 18 percent Tea Party favorability while Texas Governor Rick Perry has 7 percent support from the conservative group.

Trailing Romney in the national poll is former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich with 10 percent overall support and 15 percent support among Tea Party members, and Representative Ron Paul of Texas at 8 percent overall support and 9 percent favor among Tea Partiers.

The poll also says that Americans are becoming increasingly interested in the Presidential race, with 70 percent of registered voters paying at least some attention to campaigns.
