A new "CNN/TIME/ORC" poll shows the former Massachusetts leading all Republican presidential candidates in the early primary states.
The survey of Republican voters covers Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.
Those are the first four states on the Republican Presidential primary calendar.
In another poll, Republican voters are choosing Herman Cain as the presidential candidate they'd most like to have dinner with.
The Clarus Research Group poll shows 29-percent say Cain's the one they'd want across from them at the table for a meal.
Newt Gingrich follows as the choice of 22-percent, while 17-percent are expressing interest in dining with Mitt Romney.
Meanwhile, Romney is making a stronger impression among members of his party regarding the upcoming presidential election.
Forty-six-percent believe he has "the best experience to be president."
