If Rick Perry was a race car driver, he'd have the pole position. As a presidential candidate, he has the "poll" position.

Quinnipiac University released another poll, and Perry was again the leader.

Perry tallied 24 percent, while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came in second with 18 percent.

In a surprise, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin came in third with 11 percent, even though she has not declared that she's running for President.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, winner of the Ames Straw Poll, was a distant fourth with 10 percent.
