(Las Vegas, NV) — Herman Cain could give Mitt Romney some tough competition in the
upcoming Republican primaries and caucuses. A poll taken during last week’s Western Republican Leadership Conference in Las Vegas puts Cain with nearly 31% among attendees, compared with 29% for Romney. Newt Gingrich placed third with just over 20%, with the other GOP candidates in single-digit territory. The poll was conducted by the conservative group Citizen Outreach.
