Gallup Poll: Most Conservative Voters Have Yet To Pick A Candidate
With the loss of several potential Republican Party nominees, the field of contenders for the GOP nomination is taking shape. But a recent poll of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents shows conservative Americans are unsure about which candidate they will support.
The Gallup poll shows former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the lead, with 17 percent and 15 percent, respectively.
Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and businessman Herman Cain “essentially tie for third,” with 10 percent, 9 percent and 8 percent, respectively. However, 22 percent of those polled had not formed an opinion.
The report also noted Palin has not decided whether she will run.
“Re-allocating Palin supporters’ votes to the candidate who is their second choice gives a sense of where current preferences would stand without Palin in the mix. Under this scenario, Romney leads with 19 percent, followed by Gingrich and Paul with 12 percent each,” the report read.
