Bachmann giving GOP headache: surging in NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll

| No Comments

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Mn.), a 2012 White House hopeful, is saying that the migraine headaches she suffers would not impact her ability to be president--comments made to address a story the Daily Caller broke. The new NBC News / Wall Street Journal polls shows Bachmann jumping to second place among the Republican primary field, giving a headache perhaps (could not help myself) to her GOP rivals. Read the entire poll here.

30 Mitt Romney
16 Bachmann (up from 3 percent a month ago)
11 Texas Gov. Rick Perry--mulling a run
9 Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx.)
8 Newt Gingrich
5 Herman Cain
3 Rick Santorum
2 Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman--who have been mounting major campaigns.
