Poll: Rick Perry Leads Florida GOP Primary, Even Though He's Not Running
American Research Group, Inc., a little-known pollster, finds that 16 percent of likely Florida Republican primary voters would cast their ballot for Rick Perry. Only 15 percent would now vote for perceived front-runner Mitt Romney. ARG conducted a previous poll back in May without including Perry. Romney captured 26 percent of voters then.
Meanwhile, Minnesota crazy lady Michele Bachmann has surged from 5 percent in May to tie Romney for second place with 15 percent. Sarah Palin, who, like Perry, has not officially entered the race, is at 13 percent.
Meanwhile, Tim Pawlenty, who is racking up endorsements among Florida's Republican elected elite, sits at just one percent with voters.
