Perry edges Romney in latest Gallup Poll by 6 points

After spending the first month of his run in a dead heat with Governor Mitt Romney, Texas Governor Rick Perry surged to the lead in the GOP line-up of Presidential candidates.

The latest Gallup Poll shows him leading the former investment fund manager by 6 points, 27% to 19%.

When he made his formal announcement for election as President, Mr. Perry trailed Mr. Romney by 5 points, 23-18%. According to a poll taken during the week of August 17-21, he has taken the lead.

Political analysts attributed part of Mr. Perry's surge to his timing in the announcement of his candidacy to the day after the Iowa Straw Poll.
