UTICA, N.Y.—Businessman Herman Cain is now the runaway leader among Republican presidential primary voters with 45 percent, according to the latest an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll.
Cain has more than twice support of second-place former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (21 percent), who was recently endorsed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who led with 41 percent in late August, has fallen to 7 percent, and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who led in June and July, now gets just 1 percent.
Cain appears to have won support of voters who previously supported Perry or Bachmann. Romney’s 21 percent is the highest IBOPE Zogby has shown for him in match-ups with the current field of announced candidates.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating among all voters is 43 percent, and the percentage saying he deserves re-election is 39 percent.
These results are from an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll conducted from Oct. 11-14.
