After her disappointing 6th place finish in the Iowa Caucuses last evening, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann announced today that she is dropping out of the race. She leaves the race, however, rated number one in the Conservative Examiner's exclusive Presidential Rating Scale.
Bachmann had high hopes after she won the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa back in August. But she failed to capitalize on her momentum following the poll, and her numbers went into a free-fall.
Nonetheless, Bachmann leaves the race on top when it comes to her stance on the issues.
