Perry Not Supported for President Even in Texas

A new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll finds just 4% of Texas Republicans say they'd vote for Gov. Rick Perry (R) for president if he decided to run.

Said pollster Daron Shaw: "This is a major question for a guy who's getting national buzz. He hasn't convinced Texans that he's a presidential frontrunner."

Perry's not even the top-rated Texan in the race. That distinction goes to Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), who's at 10% among registered voters who say they will vote in the Republican primary. The leader of the pack is Sarah Palin at 12%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 11% and Mike Huckabee at 10% while Mitt Romney and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) each have the support of 7%.
