PPP Polling: Mitt Romney still stomps other GOP in Nevada

Romney may not be quite as strong as he has been in some of our previous polling of the state but he's benefiting from support across the ideological spectrum of the GOP. He's up 10 points on Trump with moderates, 9 with 'somewhat conservative' voters, and even 9% with 'very conservative' voters, a bloc that Romney has struggled with in many states.
Romney's even holding off Trump with the birther base that has been so important to Trump's support in a lot of our other polling. 43% of Nevada Republicans think Barack Obama was not born in the United States and with those folks Romney gets 25% to Trump's 19%. To give you an idea of how important this movement is/was to Trump's bid he's at only 6% with GOP voters who think Obama was born in the country, putting him in last place of the Republicans we tested.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Mitt Romney 64/23/13 (+41)
Newt Gingrich 61/21/18 (+40)
Sarah Palin 65/26/9 (+39)
Mike Huckabee 61/26/13 (+35)
Donald Trump 47/40/13 (+7)

PPP surveyed 300 Nevada Democratic primary voters and 300 Republican primary voters from April 21st to 24th. The margin of error for each survey is +/-5.7%.

Romney did very well in NV in '08. Glad to see that support has remained steady.

Great numbers for Romney in an ever so more important state in 2012!
