Bachmann Surges in New National Poll

The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds Mitt Romney still leading the GOP presidential race nationally with 30%, but Rep. Michele Bachmann has surged into second place with 16%.

(In the current poll's crosstabs, Romney narrowly leads Bachmann among Tea Party supporters, 24 to 20 percent, while Bachmann is ahead among Republican primary voters who identify themselves as very conservative, 24 to 22 percent.)

Rick Perry is third at 11%, followed by Ron Paul at 9%, Newt Gingrich at 8%, Herman Cain at 5%, Rick Santorum at 3%, and Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman tied at 2%.

Earlier, a PPP poll found Bachmann just edging Romney nationally.
