November 2nd, 2011 3 hours ago Poll: Cain pulls ahead of Romney Posted by CNN's Ashley Killough (CNN) - A new poll puts Herman Cain ahead of Mitt Romney by seven percentage points in the GOP presidential race, reflecting a margin wider than the sampling error. Cain and Romney competed for the top spot in national polls for much of October, but a Quinnipiac University Poll released Wednesday shows Cain breaking ahead to take a solid lead. Cain took 30% of support among registered Republican voters, according to the survey, with Romney following at 23%. The poll, taken almost entirely before reports emerged of sexual allegations against Cain, also reveals Cain leading in a hypothetical matchup against Romney, 47% to 39%. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/11/02/poll-cain-pulls-ahead-of-romney/ Cain has pulled away from Romney in the latest poll. This was after the vegas debates and before the "sex harassment" issues, would be interesting to see polls after that. Seems like any publicity is good publicity for the Cain Train.
