Double ouch! Governor Perry is in 5th place in Texas! Texas Senator Ted Cruz is barely ahead of Scott Walker in his home state of Texas after a week when Walker appeared to handle reporters’ questions pretty poorly (e.g. – not sure about evolution).

Sen. Ted Cruz leads a crowded field for the Republican presidential nomination in Texas, according to a University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll released on Monday.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker grabbed 2 percent of the vote in the last such poll in October, but he has surged to a close second. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whom 14 percent of Republican voters would have chosen in October, fell to fifth place in a wide-open field.
Twenty percent of those surveyed went for Cruz with Walker pulling in 19 percent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and neurosurgeon Ben Carson followed, each with 9 percent, and Perry at 8 percent.
