It’s not looking good for Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential aspirations. A new American Research Group, Inc. poll shows Perry with only nine percent support among likely Republican primary voters in South Carolina.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney continues to lead there, just slightly ahead of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, 29 percent to 25 percent. That is within the four-point margin of error. Rep. Ron Paul is polling in third according to this survey, receiving 20 percent support. Gov. Perry is ahead of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman.

Perry is second among evangelical Christian voters, behind Gingrich by a large margin. Forty percent of evangelicals say they would vote for Gingrich, while 15 percent say they would vote for Perry. Romney is in third among that group with 13 percent.
