Rasmussen Poll has Bachmann third, after Perry, Romney

A new Rasmussen Poll this week of likely Republican primary voters around the country shows Congresswoman Michele Bachmann third, behind Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.

The poll has:

  • Perry 29%
  • Romney 18%
  • Bachmann 13%
  • Ron Paul 9%
  • Herman Cain 6%
  • Newt Gingrich 5%
  • Rick Santorum 1%
  • Jon Huntsman 1%
  • Thaddeus McCotter 0%
  • Undecided 16%

 “Governor Perry is enjoying a bounce from entering the race at precisely the right time,” said Scott Rasmussen. “Now the difficult part begins for the new frontrunner. It’s much easier winning support when people are hoping you will get in the race than retaining support when you are the frontrunner.”

The poll shows Bachmann is viewed favorably by 71%, with 32% who have a Very Favorable regard for her. About 20 percent hold an unfavorable view of the three front-runners, the poll story said.
