The Zogby Poll shows Romney trailing Obama by just two points, 45 to 42-percent in a survey of nearly 85-hundred likely voters.
The poll also indicates that Romney's potential opponents for the GOP nomination, Sarah Palin and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee trail Obama by much larger margins.
Palin trailed the President by eleven points and Huckabee was behind by nine points.
In addition to his lead in the Zogby Poll, the Boston "Herald" reports Romney is the leader in fund-raising as well, already bringing in three-point-five-million-dollars this year.
Romney has not yet said if he'll be a candidate again.
