New CNN/ORC poll finds Romney and Cain neck-and-neck in contest for GOP nomination.

Romney 26
Cain 25
Perry 13
Paul 9
Gingrich 8
Bachmann 6
Santorum 2
Huntsman 1

Conducted Oct. 14-16, 2011. Margin of error 3 points.

There are three important questions of political physics right now in this race. What could/will cause Cain to drop? What could/will cause Perry to rise? And what could/will cause Romney to rise substantially? At this point, it is still possible to imagine one of the trailing candidates making a play in an individual state, but not in these national polls.
