    WATERLOO — Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced her candidacy for President on Monday, June 27 in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.

    Just hours before, the first Iowa Poll of the campaign was released by the prestigious Des Moines Register, and the news couldn’t have been better for the Bachmann campaign.

    The Iowa Poll had Bachmann and presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney in a virtual dead-heat among likely Republican caucus-goers. Romney was at 23 percent, Bachmann at 22, Herman Cain at 10, Ron Paul at 7, and Tim Pawlenty at 6. It was a major boost for Bachmann going into the Iowa Straw Poll set for Aug. 13 in Ames.
    pretty interesting, Cain's not doing too bad, beating out the Ronulan

    ya it's interesting alright.....it shows the Republican party in Iowa hasn't learned a damn thing about it's core beliefs if Romney is picking up a quarter of the votes. :(

    Me neither. I think we need someone like Perry or Palin that will fight like hell for oil and natural gas exploration which will provide millions of great paying jobs. New discoveries in PA, TX and the mountain states have boosted federal and state coffers.

    Romney would not be that much different than the O. Kinda in between the O and Bush.

    I started to like Bachmann but then some of her comments kinda turned me off.

    I agree. We need our own oil and we need jobs.

    I am surprised Romney is doing so well.

    But the Not-Romney hasn't been picked yet. Sooner or later (I figure shortly after South Carolina), it will occur.

    Romney isn't "doing so well" the fact that he's given up there, and that Bachman has gained pretty significantly shows a lot. He's the perceived front runner that will look like a loser come South Carolina

    I thought Iowa was a given for Bachmann just like Nevada is a given for Romney.

    Seriously, I am surprised he is that close in Iowa.
