The first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Iowa’s Likely Caucus Participants shows that Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann attracts 22% support, while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney earn 21%. Just slightly behind is Texas Congressman Ron Paul at 16%, followed by Texas Governor Rick Perry at 12% and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty at 11%.
Overall, just 28% of potential Iowa Caucus participants are absolutely certain of how they will vote, while the rest could change their mind. Among those who are certain of their vote, Ron Paul is on top at 27%.
In the GOP contest to challenge Obama, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney continues to lead the field, at 24%, but a potential candidate who hasn't entered the race yet is in second place.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is exploring a presidential campaign, ranks behind Romney at 17%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul is third at 14%, followed by Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann at 13%.

Having won the CPAC two years in a row and the Republican Leadership Conference this year - in addition to this success, he continues to have the highest donation amounts from the military. More than all other candidates combined!
He is definitely not a fringe candidate. Despite the MSM and FED's deepest wishes.edit on 9-8-2011 by EagleTalonZ because: (no reason given)
That's a relief, but the fact that she even has 20 supporters makes me sick.
What this poll also shows is that Michele Bachmann is losing ground.
Bachmann – 24%, Paul – 5%: 7/25
Bachma nn – 33%, Paul – 7%: 7/18
I think there's a really good chance he'll win them. Based on the debates I've watched, Ron Paul gets uproarious applause almost every time he opens his mouth because he speaks the unscripted truth.
Ron Paul is now surging in Iowa just before the Ames straw poll and the Republican Presidential debates, [color=limegreen]if he can win the debates (even if the media ignores him) and can take at least second in Ames Straw poll there is no more doubt that he will be one of the top 3 candidates heading into the 2012 primaries.
They didn't want a vote; they wanted to disrupt the convention. Frankly, it turned me off to Ron Paul entirely that time and if they act the same way this time it will do the same thing this time. These guys are going to have to act like grown-ups this time around. We'll have to wait and see if they have matured enough in the last four years. They absolutely must ride this protest vote and keep it going.
