Only 3 percent of Floridians polled over the weekend said they would vote for Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Political Wire reports.
According to an InsiderAdvantage/Florida Times-Union poll of likely Florida voters, Perry has plummeted from front-runner to the bottom tier in the Sunshine State.
Support for Perry, who once held a national double-digit lead over his closest competitor, began to decline after his poor debate performance Orlando, Florida last month. Perry led in Florida just a few weeks ago according to a Quinnipiac University poll unveiled on Sept. 22.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is leading in the state with 33 percent while businessman Herman Cain trails Romney by 3 points.
The InsiderAdvantage/Florida Times-Union poll of 505 likely voters, conducted on Saturday, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.
