Poll: Romney Has Best Shot at Beating Obama

Ad Feedback

Republicans believe Mitt Romney has the best chance to beat President Obama in the 2012 presidential election, according to a new poll.

However, the same ABC News-Washington Post poll also shows only 24 percent actually want him to be the nominee.
Half of the Republicans polled say it's because they don't like the mandatory health care law that Romney passed while governor of Massachusetts.

The same survey shows 22 percent of voters say Herman Cain is the most honest and trustworthy candidate, compared to 17 percent for Romney.

Meanwhile, another woman has made harassment allegations against Cain, according to a news report released Monday.
So far, the Georgia business man's poll numbers have held steady despite the accusations.

Congenial Debate
Meanwhile, Cain and fellow 2012 hopeful Newt Gingrich had an amusing exchange during a one-on-one debate on entitlement reform Saturday night.

"If you were vice president of the United States, what would you want the president to assign you to do first?" Cain asked the former GOP House speaker.

Both Gingrich and the audience laughed.

"I thought it was great, and the punch line at the end was fantastic," Bob Bailie, a mechanical engineer who said he would love to see a Gingrich-Cain ticket, told The New York Times. "I think those two are a great team."
CBN News Senior Political Reporter David Brody said that friendly exchange could signal a possible Cain-Gingrich running ticket.
