Ron Paul Wins Texas Primary Poll!

Azimuth Research Group just released the results of a poll in Texas of likely Republican primary voters showing Ron Paul to be the top pick in the Lone Star State with 22%. And with 9%, Gary Johnson beat out Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann, and received more votes than Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman, and Rick Santorum combined:

"With its expanded number of electoral votes, if the field doesn’t narrow down too much, Texas could play a key roll in determining the Republican nominee for 2012.  While everyone is watching the early states like New Hampshire and Iowa we’re taking a look at a big state which could decide the ultimate outcome.

Poll Date: 5/29-6/3, 2011
Poll Method: Monitored and automated calls
Poll Sample: 882 highly active Republican voters in Texas
Margin of Error: +/- 2%

Question: If the Texas Republican primary were held today, which presidential candidate would you be most likely to vote for?

Ron Paul – 22%
Rick Perry – 17%
Herman Cain – 14%
Newt Gingrich – 11%
Gary Johnson – 9%
Mitt Romney – 8%
Michele Bachmann – 7%
Tim Pawlenty – 2%
John Huntsman – 2%
Rick Santorum – 1%

This poll was not paid for or authorized by any campaign or political organization. Azimuth polling is a non-partisan polling company."
