CNN Poll: Romney Maintains 10-Point Lead
Gingrich second, but Romney's lead still large
A new CNN/Time/ORC poll shows former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney maintained a strong lead over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich this week despite Monday's debate performance.
The poll shows Romney with 33 percent support, with Gingrich 10 points behind at 23 percent.
The rest of the field remains significantly behind, as Sen. Rick Santorum stands at 16 percent, Rep. Ron Paul stands at 13 percent and Texas Gov. Rick Perry earned 6 percent support.
As in other polls, Gingrich leads among Tea Party members, but cannot capture Romney's lead among the entire electorate. Romney holds a 30-point lead among those who oppose or feel neutral about the Tea Party.
