Public Policy Polling released a new round of presidential polling numbers Tuesday featuring another weak showing from Michele Bachmann.

Public Policy Polling released a new round of presidential polling numbers Tuesday featuring another weak showing from Michele Bachmann. The polling agency said she is “well on her way to being as irrelevant as Rick Santorum, Gary Johnson, and Jon Huntsman.”

Bachmann got support from only 3 percent of Nevada voters and 5 percent of those in Wisconsin. She’s in sixth place of nine in each of those states.

PPP notes that the last time it polled in Wisconsin, after her Iowa straw poll victory, Bachmann checked in at 20 percent. The last time they polled in Nevada, in July, she received 14 percent.

Herman Cain has a big lead in Wisconsin, leading second place finisher Mitt Romney 30 percent to 18 percent. The two are statistically tied for first place in Nevada.
