Poll: Perry Trails Obama In Texas


Obama was tested against other Republicans, with varying results: Michele Bachmann leads by 47%-44%, Herman Cain is tied at 43%-43%, Sarah Palin trails by 46%-44%, Tim Pawlenty edges ahead by 44%-43%; and Mitt Romney has an solid, healthy lead of 50%-42%.

As for another maybe presidential contender with a bad showing against Obama in her home state - a Hays Research poll released on Tuesday showed only 36% of Alaska voters choosing Sarah Palin over Obama. 42% of those polls said they would vote for the President.

The Texas survey of registered voters was conducted from June 25-27, and has a ±3.5% margin of error.
