No bounce for Bachmann in New Hampshire

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s recent success in Iowa hasn’t boosted her support in New Hampshire, according to a new poll.

The latest NH Journal survey shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leading the GOP field for the first-in-the-nation presidential primary at 36 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was next at 18 percent. Ron Paul was third with 14 percent. Bachmann followed at 10 percent.

The survey also found that 84 percent of New Hampshire respondents said the results of the Ames, Iowa, straw poll, which Bachmann won, had no impact on their candidate support.

The survey of 613 likely GOP or GOP-leaning voters was conducted on August 15-16.
