Rising Cain … Herman Cain Vaults into the Lead in Rasmussen Iowa Caucus Poll



According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Herman Cain is now in the lead in Iowa among GOP Presidential hopefuls. Cain leads the pack with28% followed by Mitt Romney with 21% and Ron Paul at 10%. As much as Cain has benefited from recent debates, Texas Governor Rick Perry has obviously not. With Perry’s last  debate performance, is it  any wonder why he has dropped to 7%.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa caucus-goers shows that Cain is in front with 28% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21%. Congressman Ron Paul is a distant third at 10% followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann at 8%, and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 7%. The sixth place finish for Perry is a sharp decline from early September when Perry was the frontrunner both nationally and in Iowa. (To see survey question wording, click here).

Herman Cain is proving to be the People’s champion. As Strata-Sphere states, Cain is turning the Political Industrial Complex on its head these days. Cain is the non-politician running the non-typical politician campaign. What Cain lacks in donation dollars, he more than makes up in charisma and the People’s support. Cain is a breathe of fresh air in a political environment when We the People are tired of politicians … Cain is a man of morals, principles and conservative convictions. No wonder he leads in the polls.

As reported at NRO, Cain is about to make a serious play in Iowa … YES HE CAIN!!!

      Cain is the real item at heart. He has all the great stuff
      going for him with the exception of political mud wrestling
      (with the pigs of course) and world affairs mud wrestling
      (the other pigs). Surrounding himself with good advisors
      would work (contrary to GOP opinion) better than many
      might think. He is the final decision man, and I think he
      can navigate thru the conflicting stories to the correct
      position. Plenty of time to see how the ’9-9-9′ plan can
      be made bullet proof against later increases to say ’15-15-15′
      or worse by hungry politicians.

      Cain is a man of morals, principles and conservative convictions

      He is a politician right?

      scrap morals and principles.
      SM: Sorry, I will not. That is why he is resonating with the People.

      Tell you what—every week that passes, I am liking Mr. Cain more and more.

      I have just one concern~ his experience in Politics in general. Frankly, I still think Cain could do the job—-and I like him….Just genuinely like him.

      Interesting candidate who is getting more and more attention for a reason?

      What say you, Monkeys??

      NG…please, don’t worry about that. What experience did Obama have? A community organizer in the most mafia/organized crime invested city in the north, and a campaigning jr. senator who figured out how to vote “present”.

      Cain has MORE THAN ENOUGH experience. Ronald Reagan was an actor before he launched his political career and was amazing. Do not doubt. This guy had been around the world and back long before Obama ever stole the White House from the American People.

      We need HONESTY. Cain will put experience people around him unlike Obama who’s only requirement for a position of power was that you hate America and be a communist-minded individual.

      seeing the black people condemn Cain tells me that they are not intrested in helping themselves.
      but would rather follow the militant Obama.

      Geithner doesn’t strike me as a communist.

      Red:”That is why he is resonating with the People.”
      So was Obama, his election resonated through the whole world.

      84% of the people will get a tax increase. Yea, that’s gonna sell. He’s getting absolutly destroyed on it by the other candidates (which will be great fodder for Obama in the election).

      Herb “Flavor of the Week” Cain is a joke…..but please nominate him teatards. Please nominate this non-politician politician. Please. Please.

    8. super dave on October 24th, 2011 10:10 am

      yoyo, that was another one of your racist remarks. and we all thought you hated racism. Cain is blacker than Obama, is that your problem ?
      a dog could be nominated and would be better than your illegal kenyan boy.

    9. Moi on October 24th, 2011 12:21 pm

      Dolf, Those who truly believed obama had anything to offer no doubt believe there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

      yoyo, 84% will not get tax increase. Read up more on the plan. What WILL occur a flat tax across the board. Since you libertards constantly whine your hearts out about fair, seems to me you’ll finally be getting just what you’ve cried for. FAIR TAX when all pay same percentages. Now, what you gonna cry about next?

      #4-Moi- you said:

      “NG…please, don’t worry about that. What experience did Obama have?

      None! And look at the damn mess we are in EXACTLY because of that lack of experience.

      I fear the same common denominator (LACK OF EXPERIENCE) will yield the same results.


    11. Tamikosmom on October 24th, 2011 8:29 pm

      Experience is not the issue?

      Lack of experience is not the issue?

      The issue is common sense policies when it comes to securing the borders … common sense policies when it comes to prosecuting those who would enter the United States illegally … common sense policies when recognizing and identify enemies of the United States and … common sense policies regarding fair taxation.

      In other words … do away with political correctness which is nothing but a betrayal as well as a risk to to the law abiding American citizens.

      @9: I have trouble believing any politician who promises change overnight.

      you cant change politics overnight esp. in the US.
      even if Obama wanted to be bi-partisan (I believe he wanted too), you had the leftwingers looking for payback and the rightwingers putting their heels in the ground and refusing to cooperate.

      sidenote: Bush was even more inexperienced, but then you all thought that was a plus.
