Thank you for posting the cross-tabs as well. To be sure, those figures are somewhat interesting.

Yet ANOTHER POLL showing Romney either tied, beating Obama, or doing better than the others in a general election match-up.

It's the Independents stupid. You know, that pesky, not so little group, that will determine the next POTUS!

The GOP will probably nominate anyone but Romney and lose the general election. Everyone needs to make sure that they push for a Republican Senate and House at this point.

When you have Fox News pandering to Cain and also trying to resurrect Perry's campaign and you have vocal conservative voices like Rush,Levin,Beck and Ingraham pushing for anyone but Romney the writing to me is on the walls for either a Cain,Gingrich or Perry nomination.

The country is evenly split and I can't see how these three are going to win over the independents and some of the Reagan Democrats. Cain's and Perry's mouth and gaffs are going to make for late night fodder and Gingrich's baggage is going to weigh him down.

Romney's flip flop allegations are getting old and he is no different on flip flops than Obama or any other presidential candidate.
