Rasmussen FL poll: Cain 30%, Romney 24%, Gingrich 19%

From a press release:

As he continues to battle media coverage over past sexual harassment allegations, businessman Herman Cain leads other Republican hopefuls in the first Rasmussen Reports look at the GOP primary race in Florida.

The latest statewide telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary voters shows Cain with 30% support while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney picks up 24% of the vote. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich draws support from 19% of Florida GOP voters with no other candidate picking up double-digits.

This Florida survey of 788 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted on November 8, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

** Please note: With loads of polls, we sometimes miss a few and don't post all that are out there. Some of Rasmussen's polls have come under fire, and have sometimes appeared to skew too Republican. Since this is a GOP primary, though, his poll might have more validity than others.
