Fox News Poll: Romney Leads, Cain in Now a Top Tier Candidate

Three September debates have shaken-up the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Herman Cain has jumped into the top tier. Rick Perry’s stumbled. Mitt Romneys holding steady.

And Michele Bachmann is hitting bottom. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

The new poll found Cain’s support has nearly tripled among GOP primary voters to 17 percent.

That’s up from 6 percent before this month’s debates, and puts him in what is essentially a three-way tie with Perry and Romney.

Cain has benefited not only from his debate performances, but also significant media attention after winning the Florida Republican Party’s straw poll on Saturday.

Perry now garners 19 percent, a drop of 10 percentage points from a month ago. That puts Romney back in the top spot with the support of 23 percent. Last month Romney was at 22 percent.

Newt Gingrich recovered some ground and now stands at 11 percent. Ron Paul receives the backing of 6 percent now compared to 8 percent before the September debates.

  1. Romney should be in the lead. He is the only candidate that can carry the Independents and has a chance of beating Obama. Independents don’t like any in the top  tier that is supported by the fanatical tea bagging wacko’s. Perry and Cain fall into this group. They would end up being defeated like Goldwater in 1964. The tea party wacko’s and the bible thumping religious fanatics may nominate Perry or Cain only to come to the realization that they have created a devastating loss in 2012.  Neither will have mass appeal in a national election.
