Despite being under the microscope for his 9-9-9 plan in recent weeks, business man Herman Cain is still topping the polls and is currently beating Mitt Romney in the latest from CBS/NYT.
This poll was conducted by telephone from October 19-24, 2011 among 1,650 adults nationwide. 1,475 interviews were conducted with registered voters and 455 with voters who said they plan to vote in a Republican primary. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus two percentage points. The margin of error for the sample of registered voters could be plus or minus three points and four points for the sample of Republican primary voters. The error for subgroups may be higher. An oversample was conducted for this survey which will be analyzed in a future poll release. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.
Cain also dominates the tea party vote, which is no surprise, but the combination of the two, both Republican and tea party votes, shows Cain has solid support in both branches of the party.
