Rasmussen Poll: Perry fades against Obama. Romney gains ground

Before he entered his first debate as a presidential candidate, Texas Governor Rick Perry was the Republican frontrunner and held a modest lead in a hypothetical matchup against President Obama. Perry was the target for all the other candidates in the two most recent GOP debates, however, and he now trails the president by single digits.
Head-To-Head: [results from September 1]

Barack Obama 46% [41%]
Rick Perry 39% [44%] (-7)

Of Note: Perry went from leading Obama by 3 to losing to him by 7.

From September 10-11: (results from August 25-26)

Mitt Romney 43% (39%) (+3)
Barack Obama 40% (43%)

From September 12-13:

Barack Obama 46%
Michele Bachmann 33% (-13)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 14-15, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Wow, Perry decreases by 10 points between him and Obama.

The other polls today seem to be trending that way as well.

I think with this next debate, Perry will leave the front of the line.

I would expect next weeks polls showing Romney ahead or tied with Perry.
