According to the LA Times, a new survey released by CBS/New York Times shows that Herman Cain has jumped into the GOP lead.

The former pizza chain executive (Cain) [is] leading the field with 25% of the vote, 4 percentage points ahead of Mitt Romney.

"Newt Gingrich places third at 10%, followed by Ron Paul at 8% and Rick Perry at 6%.

Cain and Romney were tied at 17% each in the previous survey; Perry had placed at 12%," said the Times.

The Times also said that the survey was conducted after the most recent Republican debate, between Oct. 19-24 and that the reason for Cain's success may be from securing tea party voters.
