Michele Bachmann 2012 Campaign Staffers In New Hampshire Quit: Report

First Posted: 10/21/11 11:29 AM ET Updated: 10/21/11 11:51 AM ET

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's paid campaign team in New Hampshire has jumped ship from her political operation, WMUR reports.

The news comes as only the latest bump in the road for the conservative congresswoman ahead of 2012. According to WMUR, five staffers left Bachmann's Granite State team.

Ed Rollins stepped down as Bachmann's campaign manager last month and additional advisers to the presidential contender subsequently left her team.

In recent weeks, Bachmann has dismissed concerns that she doesn't have what it takes to come out on top in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

"I've got the complete skill set to do this job," she said last month during a stop in Iowa. The GOP hopeful has also predicted she'll emerge "the comeback kid" in the primary contest.

The AP reports on findings from a new poll out on the Republican presidential race:

Americans have yet to find a Republican they'd clearly prefer over President Barack Obama, although half say the president does not deserve re-election. Among Republicans, the desire to oust Obama is clear, according to a new AP-GfK poll. But it has not resolved divisions over the choice of a nominee. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is reasonably popular, but he has not pulled away from the field.

Former pizza company executive Herman Cain runs close to Romney as the candidate Republicans would most like to see on the ballot, but many Republicans are reluctant to back a man who has never held office. Texas Gov. Rick Perry lags in the poll, which was conducted before Tuesday night's combative debate in Las Vegas.

Since winning the Ames Straw Poll in August, Bachmann has tumbled in the polls and faced setbacks in striving to remain a top contender in the race.
