Michele Bachmann tops new 2012 poll
Though Bachmann is well liked among Republican primary voters, they don’t expect her to get the nomination. Only 7 percent predicted she would win, while Romney — who has led most polls — is predicted by 37 percent of GOP voters to win the nomination.
Bachmann’s performance at the first GOP presidential debate was widely considered to have helped her campaign. A Rasmussen poll released last week following the debate showed Bachmann surging to second place with 19 percent. She had previously been polling in the single digits.
At some point on Wednesday, the Bachmann campaign is expected to announce details of a Monday stop in Waterloo, the Congresswoman’s hometown, where she is expected to officially enter the GOP race for the White House.
