New Pew Poll shows Romney leading nationally but losing to Obama

A new Pew Research poll shows that Romney is, again, the favorite nationally among Republicans and GOP-leaning independents for the nomination, leading Rick Santorum 33 to 24 percent in a poll that was in the field through Sunday.

A month ago, Santorum and Romney were in a statistical tie, with the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania slightly ahead.

However, a large percentage of voters surveyed by Pew, 59 percent, see Romney losing to President Obama.
