Meet Your New GOP Presidential Frontrunner: Michele Bachmann

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Regardless if anyone actually really likes him, Mitt Romney has been the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president, topping every national poll. That is, until now. The latest poll has a new leader -- Michele Bachmann.

According to a report in the New York Post, Bachmann has a slim 21%-20% lead over Romney in the new Public Policy Polling survey.

Showing how unhappy GOP voters are with the current field of candidates, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who isn't even running, finished third with 12%.

Herman Cain was next with 11%, Ron Paul followed with 9%, and Newt Gingrich had 7%.

The media seem to love Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman, but voters don't, taking just 5% and 3% of the vote respectively.

Bachmann is on a hot streak. She tops many polls in Iowa, and is number two behind Romney in New Hampshire, where Romney now owns a $10 million estate -- a very transparent move for support in the state that holds the nation's first primary (Iowa has a caucus).
