After a quick rise in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has experienced an almost equally dramatic decline, losing roughly half his support over the past month, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Perry's slide, which comes after several uneven performances in candidate debates, has allowed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to resurface atop the GOP field. But the most direct beneficiary of the disenchantment with Perry is businessman Herman Cain, who is now tied for second place.
