Pizza magnate Herman Cain leads the Republican Presidential pack in Ohio and Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown maintains a comfortable edge over his likely challenger, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University.

In Ohio’s 2012 Senate race, the survey found Sen. Brown ahead of Treasurer Mandel by a 49% to 34% margin. The poll has a 2.4% margin of error.

In the Presidential race, President Barack Obama retains a lead over potential Republican challengers. The poll predicted Pres. Obama would defeat Mr. Cain by a 47% to 39% margin; former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney by a 45% to 41% margin; and Texas Gov. Rick Perry 47% to 36%.

“Cain’s support is strong among Republican men, who give him 32 percent of their votes, while he receives 23 percent among GOP women,”  the pollsters said. “Romney, on the other hand, does better among women — 25 percent compared to 20 percent among GOP men. When Ohio Republicans are asked who they would support if the nomination came down to Cain, Romney and Perry, the former pizza executive’s lead grows to 40 percent.”
