Rick Perry Leading in Recent Rasmussen Poll

After Rick Perry threw his name in the hat, it was expected that he would be the leader in recent polls.

And, now that Rasmussen has conducted and posted the results, we see that he leads with 11 points over Mitt Romney. But when these polls come out, it is easy to get caught up the main set of numbers posted and forget that there is more to the poll.

(Rasmussen Reports) – Perry captures 39% of the vote among GOP primary voters who say they are members of the Tea Party, with Bachmann a distant second with 21% support from this group. Perry barely leads Romney among non-Tea Party members 27% to 24%, but this marks a interesting change from the previous survey when Romney held a double-digit lead over Perry among these voters.

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of primary voters hold a favorable opinion of Perry, with 38% Very Favorable. Bachmann is viewed favorably by 71%, with 32% who share a Very Favorable regard for her.

Romney has slightly higher overall favorable rating – 77% – than Perry and Bachmann, but there’s less enthusiasm in his support. Only 21% hold a Very Favorable opinion of him.
