A new Rasmussen Poll on the 2012 GOP Presidential Nomination race shows Herman Cain holding a three-point lead over Mitt Romney, despite the allegations of sexual harassment he has been dealing with all week. The poll was conducted November 2, which was three days after the Politico story broke. That has to encourage Cain. It appears most of his supporters are not abandoning him because of the allegations.

The poll has great news for Newt Gingrich, who has now moved up to 14% support, a strong third place. That’s a 4-point improvement for Gingrich from the last Rasmussen Poll conducted on October 12.
