The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows President Obama beating Herman Cain by just 3 percentage points (42 to 39 percent). Among independent voters, Obama leads by only 1 point: 38 to 37 percent. Rasmussen shows Cain faring better against Obama than any other GOP candidate except for Mitt Romney, who leads Obama by 2 points (44 to 42 percent).
Obama led Cain by 18 points (43 to 25 percent) in Rasmussen's survey in March.
