CBS Poll: Gingrich Makes It a Three-Horse Race

Newt Gingrich has turned the battle for the Republican presidential nomination into a three-horse race by catching front-runners Herman Cain and Mitt Romney, according to a new CBS News Poll.

But the nomination is still up for grabs as seven out of 10 potential voters say they have not made up their minds definitely just eight weeks ahead of the first vote in the 2012 primary season.

Cain led the pack in the poll with 18 percent, followed by Romney and Gingrich tied at 15 percent. But 17 percent said they were undecided and 14 percent went for someone other than the top eight candidates.

The CBS survey echoed a Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage poll among Iowa caucus voters by showing that Cain has lost support among women in the light of the sexual harassment allegations that have been leveled against him, with 38 percent saying they are less likely to back him now. That compares with 30 percent of men.

The pizza mogul’s female vote has gone from 28 percent in a similar poll in October to 15 percent now.

The nationwide poll was conducted by telephone from Nov. 6-10
