Poll: 68% of Republicans willing to bend on issues for nominee who's electable

According to CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday, nearly seven out of ten Republicans say they would prefer a GOP presidential nominee who can top Obama in the next election, with 29 percent saying a nominee who agrees with them on every issue that matters the most is more important…

“Republicans are divided on their choice for the GOP nominee in 2012, but they are united in their desire to see Obama ousted from the White House,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

The survey indicates that the race for the Republican nomination is still wide open, with Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and Mitt Romney all clustered at the top of the pack.
