BOSTON - Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney solidified his standing as the early front-runner in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination after Monday's seven-candidate debate, polls released on Thursday showed.

A survey by Public Policy Polling showed Romney with 22 percent support among Republicans. Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, new to the field and seen as a strong performer in Monday's debate, had 19 percent.

Businessman Herman Cain had 17 percent, and Sarah Palin, still not an announced candidate, 15 percent.

A Rasmussen Reports poll showed Romney at 33 percent support in a survey of 1,000 voters taken on Monday night after the debate.
