Is Michele Bachmann’s support among GOP voters cratering? That’s what a new Gallup/USA Today poll implies. The survey, taken last week, shows her as the first choice of only 5 percent of respondents. That’s down from 10 percent in August.

USA Today’s estimable political correspondent Susan Page, in a tweet, described the Minnesota lawmaker’s poll trend line thusly: “Bachmann implodes.”

Congresswoman Bachmann does not even place third in the Gallup survey. Ron Paul does, with 13 percent of the GOP vote. Bachmann’s tied for fourth, with businessman Herman Cain and ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich.
