A presidential ticket of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich has the potential to beat President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, according to a new national poll.
The Republicans would win by 44 to 43 percent, Poll Position’s national telephone survey
The result is a statistical dead heat, because the poll of 1,179 registered voters on Sunday has a 3-point margin of error. The survey was taken a week after Cain’s sexual harassment scandal broke.
Predictably, Republicans favored Cain/Gingrich by 78 percent to 12, while Democrats went for Obama/Biden by 86 percent to 4. Among independents, the vote went 46 percent to 34 for the Republican duo.
