PPP Polling: Romney leads GOP in North Carolina

The clearest sign of Mitt Romney's enhanced standing after Mike Huckabee decided not to run for President may be his strength in the South. Last week we found him with a healthy lead among Republican voters in South Carolina and this week we find him ahead in North Carolina as well, a state where he had previously polled pretty poorly.
Romney leads in the Tar Heel state with 20% to 18% for Herman Cain, 17% for Sarah Palin, 12% for Newt Gingrich, 8% for Tim Pawlenty and Ron Paul, 5% for Michele Bachmann, and 1% for Jon Huntsman.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Sarah Palin 64/29/7 (+35)
Mitt Romney 56/30/17 (+26)
Herman Cain 39/17/44 (+22)
Tim Pawlenty 40/23/38 (+17)
Newt Gingrich 38/47/15 (-9)

Given the choices of Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, and Mitt Romney who would you most like to see as the Republican candidate for President next year?

Mitt Romney 20%
Herman Cain 18%
Sarah Palin 17%
Newt Gingrich 12%
Ron Paul 8%
Tim Pawlenty 8%
Michele Bachmann 5%
Jon Huntsman 1%
Someone else/Undecided 10%


Mitt Romney 25%
Herman Cain 21%
Newt Gingrich 14%
Michele Bachmann 10%
Ron Paul 9%
Tim Pawlenty 9%
Jon Huntsman 1%

I'm just tickled pink that the forecasters who said Romney was doomed a few weeks ago have eggs on their faces--big time. Ha ha ha!

This just gets better and better. Who in the world is going to step up and make this a real race?

I guess this and SC helps put to rest the notion that Romney only has regional strength.
