Romney, Cain Tied for First
Survivinng allegations of sexual harassment, Georgia businessman Herman Cain ties former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination, reports Bloomberg
A Washington Post-ABC News poll matched up Romney's 24 percent of Republicans surveyed to Herman Cain's 23 percent. The poll was taken Oct. 31 through Nov. 3 with a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.The survey tracked a hard week for the Cain campaign. This week Cain denied knowledge of a settlement between the two women who brought accusations of sexual harassment.
Later, Cain said that one of the women was paid a few months’ salary as severance, not as a “settlement.”An Iowa poll showed Texas Gov. Rick Perry tied for fifth place with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for the first-in-the-nation primary.
Meanwhile, the poll, taken before reports of sexual harassment surfaced, showed Romney and Cain tied for first.
Romney appears to be increasing his campaign presence in Iowa, a change from his previous strategy focusing on other early-voting states, reports Bloomberg. He is scheduled to make two campaign stops next week in eastern Iowa, less than three weeks after he was last in the state. It will be Romney’s fourth visit to Iowa this year.
