New CNN Poll: Perry on top when it comes to electability

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Hours before the start of the first-ever CNN/Tea Party Republican debate, a new national survey indicates that Texas Gov. Rick Perry is maintaining his lead in the race for the GOP presidential nomination.

And according to a CNN/ORC International Poll, what appears to be Perry's greatest strength - the perception among Republicans that he is the candidate with the best chance to beat President Barack Obama in 2012 - seems to be exactly what the GOP rank and file are looking for.

Lots at stake in first-of-its-kind tea party presidential debate

Tampa, Florida (CNN) – A battle over Social Security between the top two contenders in the race for the GOP nomination that started at last week's presidential debate doesn't show any signs of quieting down, and a first ever CNN/Tea Party Republican debate Monday night in Florida could serve as the setting for round two in the clash.

And the debate, being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds, will give the six other candidates on the stage an opportunity to change the dynamics of what many are currently portraying as a two-person race between Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Huntsman: Florida will decide the GOP nominee

Tampa, Florida (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said Sunday that winning Florida is “critically important” to his campaign, saying the early primary state will decide the GOP nominee for president.

“Somewhere between Orlando and Tampa, the great I-4 corridor, there’s gonna be a lot of important campaigning, a lot of connecting with the people of Florida, and ultimately I believe the decision made that will determine the next nominee of the Republican Party, and I do believe the next president of the Unite States,” Huntsman told reporters after a 9/11 memorial ceremony at the Tampa Firefighters’ Museum.
