Not much for Michele Bachmann to cheer about in a new Fox News poll that came out Wednesday night, which shows Mitt Romney at the top, with Rick Perry falling to second and Herman Cain jumping into third.

Bachmann gets 3 percent support in the poll. She’s fallen steadily in recent Fox polls: 15 percent in mid-July; 13 percent in early August; and 8 percent in late August.

The results from the Sept. 25-27 national poll, taken after the Florida debate and Cain’s surprise straw poll victory:

  • Mitt Romney, 23%
  • Rick Perry, 19%
  • Herman Cain, 17%
  • Newt Gingrich, 11%
  • Ron Paul, 6%
  • Jon Huntsman, 4%
  • Michele Bachmann, 3%
  • Rick Santorum, 3%

Slightly better results for Bachmann came on the poll question: Which one of the Republican presidential candidates do you have the most in common with? The results:

  • Rick Perry, 17%
  • Herman Cain, 14%
  • Mitt Romney, 12%
  • Michele Bachmann, 10%
  • Newt Gingrich, 7%
  • Ron Paul, 6%
  • Jon Huntsman, 2%
  • Rick Santorum, 2%.
