Cain, Romney Lead In Recent Polls

Two recent polls show former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney ahead of other candidates but neck and neck with one another when it comes to preference among likely 2012 GOP primary voters.

In Virginia, the Quinnipiac University Poll that was released Tuesday shows Cain and Romney sharing first choice among voters with 21 percent favorability each. They are followed by Texas Governor Rick Perry who only 11 percent of those polled said they would vote for, less than half than in the same poll a month ago.

“Herman Cain is moving up the ladder at breakneck speed. His 21 percent share of the GOP primary vote is more than three times the 6 percent he received when Quinnipiac University surveyed Virginians September 15,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling institute in a press release.

Of the other candidates Representative Ron Paul got 9 percent, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 7 percent each, former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania had 2 percent and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman had 1 percent of the total votes cast.

In a poll released Monday by the American Research Group, Inc., on the 2012 primary outlook in South Carolina, Cain led Romney’s 25 percent by just 1 percentage point. In third place, Perry received 25 percent of votes cast followed by 12 percent for undecided voters, 8 percent for Gingrich, 7 percent for Paul and 1 or no percentage points for the other candidates.
