Herman Cain and Mitt Romney are dead even in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, just after they and other GOP candidates debated economic issues, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released today.

The Atlanta businessman and the former Massachusetts governor both garnered 29 percent support in the nationwide poll of 1,000 likely Republican voters taken Wednesday, one day after the Republican debate at Dartmouth College.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was the only other contender to reach the double digits, and he was a distant third at 10 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, once ballyhooed as the front-runner, had 9 percent.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul was next with 5 percent. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann had 4 percent support, while former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman scraped up just 2 percent each.

In a two-way matchup, Cain squeaks past Romney by 43 percent to 42 percent. The former Godfather's Pizza CEO would wallop Perry, 54 percent to 29 percent. Romney would also best the Texas governor, 54 percent to 30 percent.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
