Nearly seven in 10 Republicans disagree with Rick Perry's recent comments that Social Security is a "monstrous lie," according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll.

Seventy-two percent of those asked whether they thought the description was fair and accurate said they were inaccurate. Among Republicans only, that number was 69 percent. Among self-described conservatives, it was 67 percent, Politico reports.

Social Security played a prominet role at Monday night's Tea Party debate, where former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney took on Perry on the popular entitlement program. The poll indicates it's not smooth sailing for Perry on the matter.
