Public Policy Polling will have a poll today that has Governor Perry with a double digit lead in the Republican Race. He has surged by Governor Romney who is unable to get beyond about 25% and is no longer the front runner.
Governor Perry also seems to have achieved his first crucial strategic goal and that was to stall Congresswoman Bachmann and gradually consolidate the dominant conservatives within the GOP around his candidacy.
PPP published an Iowa poll yesterday that had Perry leading in Iowa which is a must win state for Bachmann. Romney was third in Iowa, with Paul a close 4th.
Looking to the general election Gallup had the President and Governor Perry tied.
