The latest Gallup Poll shows former Gov. Tim Pawlenty has made little progress this year increasing his name recognition.
The poll showed 40 percent of Republicans and people who lean Republican recognize Pawlenty ‘s name. That’s about where the former GOP governor was in Gallup’s January poll, when 39 percent said they recognized his name.
Rep. Michele Bachmann was better-known than Pawlenty. The poll showed her name recognition at 54 percent. The poll was taken between March 14 and March 27. Pawlenty announced his exploratory committee on March 21.
