Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has regained the lead in the 2012 GOP presidential primary, according to a new Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll.

The survey, taken late last week — after Rick Perry's "oops" moment during a Republican debate in Michigan — puts the Texas governor at 4 percent, down from 8 percent two weeks ago.

Mitt Romney is in first place with 32 percent. In the wake of sexual harassment allegations, Herman Cain slipped to second with 27 percent.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich commands 22 percent in the survey, followed by Ron Paul with 9 percent and then Perry.

Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman bring up the rear with 2 percent or less each.

The survey was conducted November 10-12.
