Pollsters Ignoring Rick Perry

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) "continues to make headlines for what is ostensibly a roll-out for another run at the White House in 2016, but a new Smart Politics report demonstrates that the nation's pollsters are not convinced and have largely ignored the Texas governor this year."

"Perry ranks as just the 11th most listed Republican candidate in horse race polling questions of the GOP presidential primary field for the 2016 cycle. The names of only three Republicans have been given as a choice to survey respondents in all 17 such polls conducted this year: Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio. Paul Ryan and Rand Paul are next with 15 followed by Bobby Jindal with 12, Ted Cruz with 10, Rick Santorum with nine, and Scott Walker and Susana Martinez with six."
