|Description||Mitt Romney remains the favorite GOP presidential candidate among registered Nevada Republican voters, according to a poll by a super PAC backing Newt Gingrich, a source said Wednesday. |
The survey showed Romney with 33 percent support compared with 31 percent for Gingrich. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas came in at 8 percent support, followed by former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., at 7 percent.
The poll of registered GOP voters is an indication of popularity in the state, but doesn't necessarily reflect who will show up at Nevada's Feb. 4 GOP caucuses to support the candidates.
The survey suggests the GOP race remains volatile with about 21 percent saying they're undecided or prefer "someone else."
The automated telephone poll of nearly 14.000 registered Republicans was taken Sunday through Tuesday. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
