Romney 2016?

Mitt Romney doubles up on GOP field in 2016 poll

Mitt Romney continues to poll exceptionally well in the hyper-early going of the 2016 presidential contest.

The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP nominee sits at 21 percent in the latest Washington Post/ABC News survey of the 2016 race. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is in second at 11 percent, followed by Mike Huckabee and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at nine percent apiece.

Romney has led a number of early horse race polls, though he insists he has no intention of running for president again.
