In the GOP contest to challenge Obama, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney continues to lead the field, at 24%, but a potential candidate who hasn’t entered the race yet is in second place.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is exploring a presidential campaign, ranks behind Romney at 17%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul is third at 14%, followed by Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann at 13%.

No other contender breaks into double digits.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich is at 7%, businessman Herman Cain 4%, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty 3%, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman 2% and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum 1%.

Perry narrowly leads Romney among Tea Party supporters, 23% to 22%. Bachmann claims 19% of backers of the Tea Party movement.

The poll of 1,319 adults Thursday through Sunday has a margin of error of +/-4 percentage points.
