Texas Governor Rick Perry Surges into the Lead in Latest Gallup Poll

 

Texas Governor Rick Perry to the head of the pack …

The latest Gallup poll has Texas Governor Rick Perry surging into the lead in the GOP race for the Republican nomination for president with 29%. Similar to last weeks Rasmussen poll, Rick Perry has a double digit lead in Gallup, far outpacing Mitt Romney 17%, Ron Paul at 13% and Michele Bachmann at 10%.  The American Spectator has some nice geographic analysis.

Perry crushes Romney in the South 39 percent to 12 percent while trailing the former Massachusetts governor by just one point in the East. Perry has also taken a toll on Bachmann, who does no better than tying Paul in any region of the country and trails all three of them in the Midwest, even though that’s where she does best. Perry also beats Romney 33 percent to 16 percent among conservatives, while Romney has a single-digit lead among moderate to liberal Republicans.

Perry seems to have traction in the polling since he entered the GOP race on August 13. Quite interesting how well the Texan polled in the East against former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Interesting indeed, don’t mess with Texas.
