(KSL News) A new poll shows support is dropping for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

The poll done by USA Today shows only three percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters support Romney, down from eight percent earlier this month. The paper says part of the drop could be blamed on the announcement from former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson saying he may enter the race.

Republicans for Romney
--Today 3%
--Early March 8%

Support for Other Candidates
--Thompson 12%
--McCain 22%
--Giuliani 31%

Twelve percent of Republicans say they would back him as a candidate, making him the third most popular behind former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona Senator John McCain.
