Romney leads Cain, 26% vs. 25%, in the poll with Texas Gov. Rick Perry a distant third with 13% support among Republicans. No other candidate registered in the double digits.
Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director said “With only 33% of all Republicans saying that their minds are made up, it’s far too early to say the race is over, or even that is has boiled down to a mano-a-mano fight between Romney and Cain,”
The aforementioned poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, a few days after Herman Cain took a hit at the hands of his rivals at the GOP presidential date for his 9-9-9 tax proposal. Cain has jumped in public opinion surveys in recent weeks, but Perry has tailed off.
Since Perry joined the race in mid-August, he has dropped 19 percentage points in the CNN/ORC poll. Cain, by comparison, has jumped 22 points in the same surveys.
