Things That Are Less Steep Than Rick Perry's Drop In The Polls:

Things That Are Less Steep Than Rick Perry's Drop In The Polls:

Rick Perry's campaign has had a lot of ups and downs. And lately, the downs are coming fast. The red line in this slideshow represents Perry's trajectory in South Carolina since September 22. Here are other things less steep -- and sometimes as steep as Rick Perry's decline in the polls.

If, as the Mayans predicted, 2012 really is the end of the world, Rick Perry is really going out in a blaze of glory.

Rick Perry Loses Support Of Texas Republicans, New Poll Shows

Looks like Texas Gov. Rick Perry is no longer so deep in the heart of Texans.

A new poll released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling found that more Texas Republicans would vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney than their own chief executive if the two squared off head-to-head, edging out Perry 46 to 45. When asked their preference in a two-way contest in September, Perry led Romney 72 to 18. The turnaround indicates how Republicans are rallying around Romney despite Newt Gingrich's dismissal of him as a "Massachusetts moderate."

When including all GOP candidates in the race, Perry was at 49 percent in the September poll, compared to Romney's 10 percent. Now the Texan is in third place with 18 percent, behind Romney, who has 24 percent, and Gingrich, who has 23 percent. But Texans do still like him more than former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, at 15 percent, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, at 12 percent.

According to the polling outfit, "It's not just that Texas Republicans are no longer planning to vote for Perry -- a lot of them even feel that Perry's candidacy has hurt Texas' image."
