The battle is on between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry for the front-runner spot in the Republican presidential campaign. In the key battleground state of Ohio, a new Public Policy Polling survey of Republican voters shows the Texas governor barely ahead of the former Massachusetts governor — 21 percent to 20 percent.

Perry’s lead is statistically insignificant given the poll’s 4.9 percent margin of error. The survey was taken Aug. 11-14. Perry only entered the race Aug. 13.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann took third place in the poll, with 14 percent, followed by businessman Herman Cain with 10 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul tied with 8 percent, and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman with 1 percent.

Putting former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin into the mix, Perry again tallies 21 percent, with Romney second at 18 percent and Palin third at 11 percent.
