New Fox News Poll Republican 2016: Romney Way Out In Front With 21%

The bigger headline? Romney also leads among those who identify themselves as Tea Party with 20%

Fox News
 Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton remain the front-runners for their respective party’s presidential nominations. In addition, Romney performs best against Clinton among the Republicans tested in hypothetical head-to-head matchups, coming out dead even.

That’s according to the latest Fox News poll, released Thursday.  In the quest for the GOP nomination, Romney leads with 21 percent among self-identified Republicans. He’s followed by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee each at 11 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 10 percent.

Then the single-digit tier:  Ben Carson earns nine percent support, followed by   Scott Walker at eight percent and  Marco Rubio at five percent.  Chris Christie,  Ted Cruz and  Rick Perry each get 4%.  .

Romney (20 percent) is the top choice among voters who consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement, followed by Carson (13 percent), and Paul and Walker (9 percent each).

Q23. I’m going to read a list of potential candidates for the 2016 Republican nomination.

Please tell me which one you would like to see as the Republican presidential nominee
Anybody remember the completely ridiculous headline from the WashExam the other day that Drudge linked to (at the top) saying Marco Rubio was surging to second place, now just 3 points behind Romney! There have been 2 polls out since then, a Rasmussen poll Friday had Rubio in 7th place with 5% . Today, Fox News also has Rubio in 7th place with 5%.  Marco Rubio has never exceeded 6% in the last 8 national polls.
