Rasmussen Poll: Bachman Leads GOP 2012 Dark Horse Pack

File this poll under USELESS INFORMATION. It would be valuable I suppose if Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Donald Trump, and Mitch Daniels all decided to take a cruise on the Titanic, but other than that...?
What if they held a Republican Primary contest and the front-runners didn’t show up? Or what if voters look for anybody but the front-runner? How do primary voters view the dark horses who are possible contenders for the party’s 2012 presidential nomination?
If the 2012 Republican Primary for President were held today and you had a choice between Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Buddy Roemer, Gary Johnson, Thaddeus McCotter or John Huntsman for whom would you vote?

Michele Bachmann 27%
Rick Santorum 12%
Herman Cain 9%
Rick Perry 7%
Jon Huntsman 3%
Buddy Roemer 1%
Gary Johnson 1%
Thaddeus McCotter 1%
Some other candidate 17%
Undecided 22%
The survey of 1,000 Likely GOP Primary Voters was conducted on April 26, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. Likely GOP Primary Voters include both Republicans and unaffiliated voters likely to vote in a GOP Primary. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
