That's about all that polls show with certainty less than three months before the first votes are cast in the GOP presidential primary.

At least eight other Republicans have seen their standings soar in GOP primary surveys since the year began.

The indecisiveness is a reflection on Romney. He hasn't been able to lock up the GOP's support even though he's essentially been running for president since losing his 2008 bid.
