Perry and Bachmann Race to the Bottom — Of the Polls

Perry and Bachmann Race to the Bottom — Of the Polls

It's bad news for two antigay GOP presidential candidates — Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann have placed near the bottom of a recent poll of Republican voters in Nevada.

The Silver State will host one of the early primaries, and Nevada is largely seen as a swing state, with large union and Latino populations. While former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney gains strength there — 38% of likely caucus-goers said they support him — Perry and Bachmann are sinking.

Rick Perry only has 5% of respondents' support, while Bachmann has 2%. Rick Santorum, another antigay candidate, has long been viewed as a longshot — he only polled at 1%. Read more here, including poll numbers for Herman Cain and Ron Paul.
