Latest 2012 Presidential Poll Numbers

The latest batch of news surrounding Herman Cain and the sexual harrassment accusations levied against him doesn’t seem to be putting a significant dent into his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

A Real Clear Politics polling average has Cain maintaining about a 25.5% to 23% lead over nearest rival Mitt Romney.  Newt Gingrich remains a distant third at about 11% support.

Cain is facing down allegations that he sexually harrassed employees during his time with the National Restaurant Association.  For Cain’s part, he claims the charges just come with the turf since he’s started appearing at the top of the polls.

The Republican nomination may ultimately become a moot point as all current Republican contenders fall short of incumbent President Barack Obama.  In current polling, Obama maintains about a 2% advantage over Romney, a 7% lead over Cain, a 10% lead over Rick Perry and a 14% gap over Newt Gingrich.
