Romney Crushes Perry In NBC/WSJ Poll

Here's the latest evidence that Rick Perry won't be making a comeback in the Republican presidential race: The newly-released NBC/WSJ poll shows Mitt Romney holding a commanding lead over the Texas governor in a head-to-head primary matchup, 62 to 33 percent.

As I argued last week on Decoded, Perry's problems with the Republican base are deep-seated, and it's becoming awfully hard to see him coming back to seriously challenge Romney-- even with his millions to spend.

And with Herman Cain's struggles to get past the sexual harassment scandal, it's just the latest sign that Romney is on a glide path to the GOP nomination.
