New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s decision — again — to not run for president in 2012 means that the lineup of GOP presidential candidates may be set. Among those candidates, Mitt Romney has moved into the lead as Texas Gov. Rick Perry has faded. Romney has 25 percent support in the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, while Perry has dropped to 16 percent and is now tied with Herman Cain for second place. Perry’s support fell 13 percent since the last poll. His biggest decline was among conservatives, whose support for Perry dropped from 39 to 19 percent. Whoever wins the GOP nomination has a strong chance of beating President Obama, according to the poll. Only 37 percent of those surveyed believe Obama will win re-election, and 55 percent think the GOP nominee will win.
