Mitt-Mentum!!! Romney Up By 10 Over GOP for Party Nod.

Former Governor Mitt Romney’s is enjoying a serious bounce in the polls since announcing his 2012 Presidential campaign last week. He leads both the GOP field for his party’s nomination, while running the strongest against President Obama, in new polls by ABC News and Quinnipiac.

A Quinnipiac poll released today shows Romney leading the GOP field in the party nomination race by 10 points, thanks to a full 25% level of support from Republicans and GOP-leaning Independents. This is a 7point increase in Romney’s support since their May 4th poll. Read full story here.

Here are the current and previous results from Quinnipiac:

If the 2012 Republican primary for President were being held today, and the candidates were Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Mitch Daniels, Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul Michelle Bachman, Gary Johnson, Rick Santorum, John Huntsman, and Donald Trump, for whom would you vote?

It sure seems like Pawlenty would be getting more traction by now. Maybe the debate next week will help him. It will be interesting to see the contrast between Tim and Mitt, and if MassCare really is going to blow up on Romney.

Thanks for the post, Doug!

mitt will own them all in the debate!!

Good week as far as positive press reports and mittmentum for romney. it seems like he goes through phases, a week of negative anti-romney stuff, then a week off good polling and positve reports.
