According to a new poll from Mason Dixon Polling and Research, 32 percent of people questioned in the survey say they are backing the congresswoman from neighboring Minnesota for the GOP presidential nomination. At 29 percent is former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who’s making his second bid for the White House. Bachmann’s lead is well within the poll’s sampling error.
The survey indicates that seven percent are supporting former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, with former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at six percent. Everyone else was in the low single digits.
