CBS/NYT Poll: Cain and Romney on top

Businessman Herman Cain is now atop the field of Republican White House hopefuls, squeaking past former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.


Cain's support surged among voters who identified with the conservative Tea Party wing of the Republican party, rising to 32 percent in mid-October from 18 percent just a few weeks ago....


Romney's Tea Party support has held steady in October, at 18 percent, after a modest increase from September's 12 percent.


The race is still open, as voters are not firm in their support of any of the candidates. About four of five voters said it is too early to say for sure who they support for the nomination, with just 19 percent saying their minds are already made up. That's about the same as it was at this point in 2007.

The poll was conducted Oct 19-24 among 1,650 adults. 1,475 interviews were conducted among registered voters and 455 voters who said they plan to vote in a Republican primary. The MOE among primary voters is +/-4%.

Cain is leading by the Marian of error.


That's not leading... that's a tie at best.

Well let's hope Cain stays put for a little while. He's doing very nicely holding Perry back. If he would just shut his trap, he could hold on.

I don't have a lot of faith in CBS polls. I think Cain is in trouble.
