NBC/WSJ Poll: Perry Holds Commanding Lead Over Romney

September 6, 2011

Updated at 11:47 a.m.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry leads the Republican presidential field in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday morning, confirming the findings of other recent national polls that show the Texas governor as the clear Republican frontrunner.

Perry places first in the poll with 38 percent, and is followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is second with 23 percent. In the previous poll, conducted in mid-July, about a month before Perry officially announced his bid, Romney led the pack with 30 percent and Perry registered just 11 percent support.

Rep. Ron Paul , R-Texas, is at 9 percent in the latest poll, and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., who is shaking up her campaign's leadership's structure, is fourth at just 8 percent. That's down from 16 percent in the previous poll, where Bachmann was second only to Romney. The congresswoman's momentum has been slowed in recent weeks, largely due to the entrance of Perry.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted Aug. 27-31 by a bipartisan team of pollsters. That poll surveyed 1,000 adults, with a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent, but the margin of error for the subsample of 266 GOP primary voters +/- 6.0 percent.
