Romney strengthens lead in Nevada

A new Magellan Strategist poll of likely Nevada caucus-goers finds Mitt Romney's overall support jumping from 24% to 38% since its last survey in August.

1. Mitt Romney 38%

2. Herman Cain 26%

3. Newt Gingrich 16%

4. Ron Paul 7%

5. Rick Perry 5%

6. Michele Bachmann 2%

7. Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman 1%

Interestingly, Romney leads by 22% among women but only by 2% among men. That's a common tale. Throughout this cycle, men have preferred tea party bomb throwers; whereas, women have preferred Romney, and before that, Huckabee.
