Pizza Man No Longer Topping Romney
Herman Cain seems to be losing popularity with Republican voters, at least in the upcoming primaries. CNN polled registered Republicans in Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, four of the first five primary states. Cain is losing to Romney in all four.
In New Hampshire, neighbor to Romney’s home state of Massachusetts, Romney is up by a commanding 27 points. In Florida, Romney’s up by 12 points. In Ohio and South Carolina, Romney is ahead but the two are within the margin of error.
The Tea Party, however, still backing Cain. According to CNN:
“In all four states, Cain does best among tea party movement supporters. In Iowa, for example, Cain beats Romney among tea party supporters by a 29% to 17% margin, but Romney wins among Republicans who are neutral toward the tea party or oppose it by 14 points,” adds [CNN Polling Director Keating] Holland. “Even in New Hampshire, where Romney wins handily among both groups, Cain’s share of the vote is four times higher among tea party supporters.”
