Newt Gingrich is now in the lead of the Republican field for US President among primary voters with 32%, followed by Herman Cain at 26% and Mitt Romney at 14%, according to a Zogby poll.

According to that same poll, in theoretical match-ups with Barack Obama among all voters, both Romney and Gingrich are statistically tied with the President.

Relatedly, the IBOPE Zogby interactive poll conducted from Nov. 15-17 also finds Obamas approval rating holding steady 44%, as is the percentage saying he deserves re-election (40%).

The poll also asked whom Republicans primary voters would choose if the only candidates were Romney and either Gingrich, Cain, Rick Perry or Ron Paul. Both Gingrich and Cain easily defeat Romney, who defeats Perry and Paul, according to the poll.
