Romney Catching Up to Perry

by Katrina Trinko

A Rasmussen poll released today has Rick Perry leading with 28 percent — and Mitt Romney only four points behind him at 24 percent. That’s a significant change from when Rasmussen polled likely GOP voters before the first debate and found that Perry had an 11 point lead, 29 percent to 18 percent.

The rest of the candidates are polling in the single digits: Newt Gingrich is at 9 percent, Michele Bachmann 8 percent, Herman Cain 7 percent, Ron Paul 6 percent, Rick Santorum 3 percent, Jon Huntsman 2 percent, and Thad McCotter 1 percent. Eleven percent of likely Republican voters are still undecided.
