Herman Cain leads presumed frontrunner Mitt Romney as the top choice of Republican primary voters in the race for the 2012 Presidential nomination. Among all voters, no one in a list of 13 possible GOP candidates leads President Barack Obama.

More critically for Obama, however, is the fact that less than half of voters (42 percent) say Obama deserves re-election.

The results of a new IBOPE Zogby Interactive poll, conducted May 20-23, show Cain, a businessman and radio talk show host who drew attention at the first party presidential debate early this month, as the choice of 19 percent of GOP primary voters.

Gov. Chris Christie, the New Jersey Governor who has repeatedly stressed that he is not a candidate for president, is second with 16 percent, followed by Romney in third with 11 percent.

Romney is now seen as a more acceptable candidate to Republican voters than he was in an interactive poll conducted from May 6-9. Then, 27 percent of GOP primary voters said they would never vote for Romney compared to just 9 percent who say so now.

Romney remains the candidate GOP voters believe most likely to be the nominee with 37 percent, and no one else gets more than 6 percent.
