Tim Pawlenty, who’s likely to run for president, and 14 percent for former Sen. Norm Coleman. No other potential candidate has double-digit support.

To be sure, the poll found that Klobuchar leads Bachmann 56 percent to 39 percent among voters as a whole. Pawlenty trails the incumbent senator by 10 points, while Coleman trails her by 14 points.
