Poll: Bachmann Surges Nearly 15 Points... Now in Second Behind Romney

Romney 33%... Bachmann 19%... Cain 10% 


In the wake of a dazzling debate performance earlier in the week, confirmation of the positive impression made on Republican primary voters has now arrived in the form of an almost fifteen-point move for Michele Bachmann , one that has her pulled-away from the second-tier pack and now growing larger in Flipper's rear-view mirror...

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters, taken following the candidates’ Monday night debate, shows Romney earning 33% support, with Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann a surprise second at 19%. Georgia businessman Herman Cain is in third place with 10% of the vote. 

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich picks up nine percent (9%) support, followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul with seven percent (7%), ex-Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty at six percent (6%) and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum also earning six percent (6%). 

Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, who did not participate in the debate but is expected to announce his candidacy on Tuesday, gets two percent (2%) of the vote. Eight percent (8%) prefer some other candidate...

As for relevance, imo Rasmussen is pretty much the only pollster one can take at face value... more on that -here-

I for one am delighted to see the Bachmann surge... don't know about you, but here she's on the short list for 2012. Below we have Michele on Hannity a couple days ago with some thoughts on how the campaign is shaping-up:



Michele Bachmann is a true American patriot... 
a Reaganite conservative to the bone... and a real firecracker
just what this moribund party could use next year-

Now watch the MSM hacks lay into her with the rumors, 
innuendo, and spin...  predictably, that's already started.

My wife and I were present at the Manchester debate. I had seen Reagan on the campaign trail in 1980. I have never seen such a charismatic political figure as Bachmann. The establishment Republican who asked a worried question about how extreme the Tea Party faction was--after the debate, he said that he was inclined to vote for Bachmann.
Even my wife, who has serious concerns about Bachmann's social views, was reassured by Bachmann's eloquence on sticking to the Constitution, e.g., the President has no Constitutional or legal role as a "values czar". Bachmann said that, as President, she would have no intention of going into NH or any other state, for that matter, to repeal gay marriage.

Bachmann is a deeply principled politician, and indeed loyal to the Constitution

She seemed to nail every topic just right for me too, and I thought she nuanced the states' rights issue well too- she's still against gay marriage, but has other priorities than launching a crusade against such state laws- makes sense we have bigger problems now, that's for sure

Thanks for your input... I saw Reagan on the stump a couple times myself, and Michele indeed does connect in a way you just can't teach- agreed

Caught this from the LA TImes piece you linked to "Bachmann emerged into public notoriety as a vanguard of the slash-and-burn “tea party” movement"
LMAO! slash-and-burn??? WT..... And of course they throw in a little jab at Palin, to boot.
The comments there on the piece, however, seem to show most hammering in Obama. Good sign.
Bachmann 15% serge shows momentum to gain more ground on Romney, which only gained 10. Nice. Hope she can over take him.

That LAT article by Oliphant is 100% tripe... spinning like the Tasmanian Devil, he tried to imply that Bachmann/conservatives are somehow "against" compassion, please

What's funny, is that if you go by their policies, Reagan was much to the Left of Obama.. taxes.. guns.. immigration.. military ...

too bad Republicans just can't get past race.

Their loss.

Examples or links to back up your fanciful dream world, troll?

There's a local guy on the radio I'm forced to listen to on occasion. He fancies himself an all around conservative. The other day I couldn't stand his rantings any longer. He kept asking "Why are they debating SOoooo early?"

I did something I never have done before ... I called. I basically told him about an obvious numbers game. If a candidate did well, as in this case Bachmann, they could count on an early infusion of cash for their election war chest. She would need it to beat Mitt, the liberal medias darling. Believe you me ... Mitt doesn't want these either, they do nothing but show him to be "McCain Like".

I personally love Bachmann way over Mitt. I'd also be happy with Cain up to a point. I'd sure love to see either Alan West or John Bolton in the race though! Man, how great would a Bolton/Bachmann (either position) or Bachmann/West ticket be?

Hey, THAT was original...
Anon, those cards have been dealt. Try a new deck.
