Ron Paul - 14% (+4)
Michele Bachmann - 10% (+0)
Herman Cain - 3% (-1)

Tim Pawlenty - 8%
Herman Cain - 8%
Newt Gingrich - 5%

Bachmann gained absolutely nothing from Ames, although -- to be fair -- she proved that in a GOTV contest that neither Romney nor Perry participated in, she could narrowly defeat Ron Paul.
