A new poll shows Michele Bachmann falling back in the Republican field – and that her problems extend beyond front-runner Rick Perry siphoning off her supporters.
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.
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.
