Sarah Palin Washington, Mar 27 (ANI): Tea Party supporters have favoured Mitt Romney as their top choice for President in 2012, a new Pew Research poll has revealed.

Twenty four percent of Tea Party backers have named the former Massachusetts Governor as the number one choice as a potential GOP presidential contender, the New York Daily News reports.

Sarah Palin’s ratings are slipping, according to the recent poll.

Romney beat out Tea Party favourites by double digits — Paul received 13 percent and Palin received 12 percent. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee garnered 19 percent of the Tea Partiers’ support, while former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich received 15 percent.

Tea Party favourite Michele Bachmann, who will reportedly launch a presidential exploratory committee, was reportedly not included in the list of possible candidates. (ANI)
