RAISING RISING CAIN …
For those who say that Mitt Romney is a sure thing to win the Republican Presidential primary … not so fast! Could we possibly be saying President Herman Cain in 2012?
In the most recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll comes the following surprising result, Herman Cain leads the pack of GOP presidential contenders. Herman Cain, the former God Father’s pizza CEO garnered 27% of GOP voters, for Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney 23% and Texas Governor Rick Perry 16%. Herman Cain is on a roll lately and has gained considerable momentum, Perry is sliding fast and Romney is polling sure and steady. However, it is obvious that Cain is on a roll and has catapulted himself into the limelight and the GOP primary lead. Now it is a matter of can he sustain his new found support.
Cain checks in as the first choice of 27 percent of Republican voters in the poll, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 23 percent and Perry at 16 percent. After those three, it’s Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 11 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 8 percent, Bachmann at 5 percent and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman at 3 percent.
In the previous survey, conducted in late August, Perry led the field at 38 percent, Romney stood at 23 percent, while Cain was at only 5 percent.
“He isn’t a politician”
Cain’s numbers are sky-high among Republican primary voters. Fifty-two percent view him favorably, versus just 6 percent who see him unfavorably. Among Tea Party supporters, his favorable/unfavorable score is 69 percent to 5 percent. And among Republicans who identify themselves as “very conservative,” it’s 72 percent to 2 percent.
The full polling results can be seen HERE. The fact that Cain has never been a politician is resonating with the GOP voters. Imagine a Cain-Obama Presidential match up and BO trying to tell America he is a DC outsider because his campaign is based out of Chicago.
Doug Ross says, “Shhh… no one tell the Axis of Fail that Herman Cain is currently leading Mitt Romney in the polls, having jumped 22 points in the last six weeks.” However, the Legion of Gloom has gotten the memo as Democrats, the LEFT, the liberal MSM and black celebrities are on a full scale attack on Herman Cain.
Just curious, are those who oppose Herman Cain racist?
