Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Among all Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, Perry edges ahead with 27 percent of the vote, followed by Romney with 22 percent, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin at 14 percent, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) with 8 percent and Bachmann at 6 percent.”
