A new Gallup poll shows that if the election were to happen today, the top four GOP presidential contenders would run a tightly contested race against President Obama.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leads Obama, 48 to 46 percent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry ties the president at 47 percent each, and the others 2 contenders trail at a total of 6 percentage points.
More startling numbers: Obama only received about 85 percent of votes from Democrats in all four simulated races.
