According to a Quinnipiac University poll conducted from November 18-23, 1,623 registered voters nationwide said that if the primary election were held today they would send Mitt Romney on to the 2016 general election.
The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee leads the pack with 19 percent of Republicans voters’ support. Following Romney are former Florida Governor Jeb Bush with 11%, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with 8%, Dr. Ben Carson with 8%, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 6%. Other candidates failed to gain more than 5 %.

While Clinton beats the other Democratic primary candidates by a wide margin,
for the general election she comes up short against Romney 44-45.
The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 1,623 registered voters between November 18-23, 2014. The results of the Quinnipiac poll echo those of a Bloomberg poll released earlier this week which also indicated strong support for Romney among Republicans.
“Enough Americans now regret their decision to vote for Obama that were the 2012 Presidential election to be held today, we would be seeing President Romney on the news, and there would be no Obamacare.”
