Herman Cain is the frontrunner now and I'm hoping that he is prepared for the onslaught that will surely come.
From the PPP poll:
Strong Tea Party support has Cain in the drivers seat nationally, just as he has been on our last four individual state polls. With non-Tea Party Republicans Romney actually leads Cain 29-27. But with the Tea Party crowd Cain is getting 39% with Gingrich at 16%, Perry at 14%, and Romney in 4th place at 13%. Romney doesnt need to win the Tea Partiers to be the Republican nominee. But he does need to finish better than 4th with them.
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.
Cains 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, its 72 percent to 2 percent.
In follow-up interviews with respondents supporting Cain, they argue that hes not a politician, and that he seems real. He has common-sense answers and is in touch with the heartbeat of America, said one respondent, a 46-year-old male from Florida
Despite Cains rise and Perrys fall over the past month and a half, Romneys standing in the Republican horse race hasnt changedit was 23 percent in August, and its unchanged at 23 percent now.
The man is anything BUT unprepared, in anything he has done in life so I am certain he is ready for the onslaught. The attacks on his 9-9-9 plan are just starting but even he has said that the plan is just the beginning, to unite the Flat Taxers with the Fair Taxers. It's not perfect but a good starting point for a discussion.
Meanwhile, in the latest MSNBC poll you see that Romney's numbers haven't changed a bit. Anyone who is for Cain was NOT for Romney before so that isn't surprising....but the MSM is all but crowning Romney anyway:
Hes viewed as an almost inevitable candidate, said longtime strategist Ed Rollins, who until last month managed the campaign of Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), one of Romneys opponents. Hes the heavy favorite.

Does this mean that the corrupt MSM are racists??
Mitt Remulak will inevitably end up 4th.
No, they are just cysts, pilonidal cysts on the butt of America.
here’s one piece of news that is “yet to be had”: The Palin Endorsement
Clearly these polls show that Cain can not win. And if Cain is the conservative he claims to be and not a stalking horse for Romney he needs to pull out of the race and endorse Perry.
They're scared of him, make no mistake!
The big problem Mittens in relying upon “Republicans” to win primaries is the primary rule: In the Democrat primaries the most leftist scum vote and in the Republican primaries those farthest to the RIGHT vote. The “Republicans” will be overwhelmed unless Tokyo Rove and his henchmen rig the game. In New York State this is happening already. We have to keep on our guard to combat the “Fix” when we smell it.
If the primaries were held today Mittens could win. They know this so we have to be on guard for these GOP Establishment run states that want to move the primaries up. The longer the process goes on the more we will see how awful Mittens is.
First glance I was going to slam you then i saw the sarcasm note. ha ha. I love Cain
Melissa today pay day donated $50 to him
Interesting. This may shape up into a three-way race, between Obama, Romney, and Cain. The GOP is going to back Romney, so Cain is going to have to muster as much support from the conservative faction of the GOP, the middle of the road types, along with the TEA party as he can, and manage to fend off both of the DNC/RNC party minions. He has his work cut out for him to say the least.
It would be so much more fun if I could posted it without the (sarc). But I sure don’t want all the heat from my fellow ‘Cainiacs’ that such would generate! ;-)
So true. Cain is going to stay at the top.
Well, according to O’Reilly and Krauthammer, Cain can’t beat O’Bama. My dog could beat O’Bama!! Tell me the fix isn’t in.
999 has no chance of passing. 999 won’t even get out of committee.
But it’s a starting point. You want a Flat Tax? A Fair Tax? Electing Herman Cain is the best chance you’re ever going to get to throw out the current tax code and implement a more sensible system.
Mitt Romney is better than Obama— but he’s just going to tinker around the edges.
Herman Cain will probably fail at implementing the change we want— but he is our best chance to blow the current tax code up and start over.
I identify myself as liberal to moderate.
(I can't help it that almost everyone around me is a leftwing godless marxist nutjob...present company excepted)
