Perry Way Ahead of Republican Field

A new CNN/Opinion Research survey of Republicans nationwide shows Rick Perry leading the primary field as their choice for president with 32%, followed by Mitt Romney at 18%, Michele Bachmann at 12%, Newt Gingrich at 7%, Ron Paul at 6% and everyone else in the low single digits.

Notes pollster Keating Holland: "Perry's biggest support comes from Republicans who say they are supporters of the tea party movement - he wins 37 percent of their vote -- but he also edges Romney by a couple of points among Republicans who don't call themselves tea party supporters."
