(CNN) - Potential presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann may expedite an announcement about her presidential intentions.
"The recent response from people, in terms of Facebook activity and donations, has been amazing," Bachmann said in a statement Tuesday. "And it is forcing us to probably speed up our timing. We were looking at June, but we may make a decision in May."
Bachmann previously said she would make a decision by June, or possibly earlier.
The Minnesota Republican and Tea Party favorite has traveled to early presidential primary and caucus states including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
In a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll, Bachmann received support from 7 percent of Republicans and independents who lean Republican when pitted against other possible and declared GOP candidates.
She ranked fifth behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney who received 23 percent support, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with 17 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 13 percent and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas with 12 percent.
