Notes: Pollster Tom Jensen says the big disparity between Romney and the rest of the GOP hopefuls is explained by indies.
Obama dominates most of the Republican field with them- a 22 point lead over Palin, a 23 point one over Huckabee, and a 27 point one over Gingrich.
But Romney actually has an 11 point lead over Obama with them.
