A poll released Wednesday puts Herman Cain ahead of Mitt Romney by seven percentage points in the presidential race, reflecting a margin wider than the sampling error.Please bookmark!
Cain and Romney competed for the top spot in national polls for much of October, but a Quinnipiac University Poll shows Cain breaking ahead to take a solid lead.
Cain took 30 percent of support among registered Republican voters, according to the survey, with Romney following at 23 percent.
The poll, taken almost entirely before reports emerged of sexual allegations against Cain, shows him leading in a hypothetical matchup against Romney, 47 percent to 39 percent.
But Romney fared better than Cain in a hypothetical contest with President Barack Obama, scoring 42 percent to Obama's 47 percent. Cain came in at 40 percent, against Obama's 50 percent.
