Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leads a Harvard-Saint Anselm poll
of likely Republican primary voters at 38 percent, 18 points ahead of
his nearest competitor.
“He is the best-known candidate, and the
most favorably viewed, with a 75 percent favorable rating,” said Chris
Galdieri, assistant professor of politics at Saint Anselm College,
Herman Cain registered second at 20 percent, with Ron Paul third at 13 percent.
All the other follow candidates, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, were in single digits.
Perry, at just 4 percent, had a favorable rating of 43 percent but an almost equally high unfavorable rating of 41 percent.
