Bachmann Rising...Romney Stalling

Congresswoman Bachmann's momentum continued for another week, with her moving into a strong second in New Hampshire, a must win state for Governor Romney.  Public Policy Polling ( 

Romney's once strong lead in New Hampshire before Congresswoman Bachmann's entry is now down to 7 per cent.  Romney has 25% support to Bachmann's 18%.

Bachmann leads in Oregon, Montana, New Mexico and is tied with Romney in Iowa.

Romney also posted weak fundraising numbers for the second quarter of 2011, when he raised $18 million.  While that amount led the Republican field, Romney's total was well below the $50 million many had expected and calls into question whether Romney will in fact have a clinching money advantage in the nomination struggle.  It would seem that he won't.

All this adds up to Bachmann Rising and Romney Stalling.
