The new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Mitt Romney leading the Republican primary race nationally, with Michele Bachmann in second.
The numbers: Romney 30%, Bachmann 16%, Perry 11%, Paul 9%, Gingrich 8%, Cain 5%, Santorum 3%, Pawlenty 2%, Huntsman 2%.
NBC notes of Bachmann's huge rise in the poll: "A month ago -- before she announced her presidential bid -- Bachmann was just at 3 percent in the survey."
Earlier today, a national survey from Public Policy Polling (D) put Bachmann ahead of Romney. This very different result is much better for Romney, but still signals potential dangers for him and openings for Bachmann.
