Rice Tops Poll, But GOP Divided On VP Pick

Results of a new CNN/ORC poll released Thursday showed Condoleezza Rice tops the list of who Republican voters would like at the side of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in this year's election.

Rice, the former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, was favored by 26 percent of voters polled. However, former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum came in a close second, garnering 21 percent of those polled.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tied for third place with 14 percent each.

The Romney presidential campaign announced earlier this week that advisor Beth Myers will lead the search for the former Massachusetts Governor's running mate.

The CNN poll, conducted by ORC International, interviewed 1,015 Americans by telephone from April 13th to 15th and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
