Thank God, and I say that reverently. I’ve been praying for Cain. He is a good, smart man, and the antidote to much of what is wrong with the DC Ruling Class.

Looks like Perry really damaged himself in the debate. Whoever wins this usually is the nominee. Cain is really well positioned to win.

Take note to his intensity from supporters number and the room he has to grow with low name recognition.

I feel so relieved. I think I’ve finally found my candidate. A man of integrity and common sense with a solid moral base. A man with the ability to communicate the conservative message to the masses.

And he just proved that he’s electable!

*finally!*

I’m one of those who like Cain but didn’t think he could win. But thus win could give him a real boost, particularly financially. Would be s real kick in the pants for establishment Republicans who keep foisting Romney on us.

I saw them whining on Ron Paul Forums this morning that the rules for this one prevented them from sending in busloads of Paultards to spam this poll.

I don't have the details, but that just might make this a fairly realistic poll.

I've been very impressed with Herman Cain lately. Don't know if the 9-9-9 plan would go over or really be feasible, but I think this is a guy who would really work with us to get our country back on track.

I would have no problem supporting him as our nominee.

congrats to Cain, I am a Perry supporter, but at least I could live with Cain as the nominee, anyone but Romney for me... well not that nut Paul... or that liberal Huntsman... or that ... whoever that gay guy on the left was at the last debate, I don’t think I could support him either, but CAIN!? yep, he would be just fine with me.

GO CAIN!

I’m with you - anyone but Romney or Huntsman, or whoever that other person is. Cain is a fine man and would be a good president. Sure, he needs some foreign policy experience, but, look at the idiot now in office. Cain can’t be any worse and probably will be a lot better.

Cain’s book hasn’t even come out yet. It’s due Oct. 4. My guess is it will create a buzz right when he needs it most.

We think alike on this primary - I HATED that last debate and didn’t like that health question those Romneybot panelists posed to Cain - cheap and tacky IMO. Partial backlash? I hope so.

Me neither. Not sure I completely understand the 9-9-9 plan but he has plenty of time to explain it. I may just have to send him a little sumthin sumthin now...

seriously, this result just blows my mind.

I have been a Cain supporter since day one, but I didn't feel that he was electable, since the polls always have him so low(so I defaulted to Perry as the most conservative electable candidate)... but wow this result is earth shattering, and could be just the thing to shake this race up.

And all I got to say is thank God Romney came in 3rd, renewed my faith in the south, which I have always believed would never under any circumstance vote for Romney.

I’ll bet Karl Rove is disappointed that his candidate, Romney, didn’t do better. Sarah’s my favorite, but ABO.

Congratulations, Mr. Cain.

****Cain can’t be any worse and probably will be a lot better.****

NO ‘probably’. Cain is everything that BO is not. He loves the US. He is the least arrogant person running. As successful as he has been in life he is a humble human being. He is an optimist. He has overcome serious illness. He has a beautiful family that he does not ‘use’. He has ideas but is not an idealogue. Is a man of faith - but it is private and personal. He is also a true entrepreneur, not a theoritician. We need a practical man -not a policy wonk.

What’s not to admire and respect.

“Cain is a fine man and would be a good president. Sure, he needs some foreign policy experience, but, look at the idiot now in office. Cain can’t be any worse and probably will be a lot better.”

You’re right, once on the job he couldn’t possibly do worse than the idiot-in-chief. However, he’s got to convince enough people of that in order to get the chance. Idiot’s policies are destructive but he’s had enough exposure to the issues to sound reasonably knowledgeable about pretty much all of them in a debate setting. Since Cain can’t actually get foreign policy experience before the election, he’s got to convince people that he’s at least got theoretical depth in that area. We (and Cain) can’t afford a deer-in-the-headlights moment regarding foreign policy (I think he’ll be solid in the other areas). Please do your homework Herman!

He is the ruling class. He worked for the Federal Reserve which is like working for the mafia or the devil. He is one of them. Geez.

People are so naive. The Fed is more evil than Goldman Sachs because they are pretty much one in the same.

You are a broken record of BS- Regional Fed Bank Presidents have NOTHING to do with monetary policy, currency valuation, or any of the things that we associate with some candidates complaining about the Fed. The regional Fed banks have the role of clearing checks, helping banks move money between each other, and ensuring that they all comply with regulations and file the proper paperwork. Their roles are legal and legitimate.

Maybe you should read the writing of The Framers of The Constitution about Central Banks aka Cain’s old employer.

Ron Paul supports the citizenry while The Fed is robbing you blind and Cain was one of them. You don’t get a gig as a Fed gov unless you are in with the gang.

The Fed is evil and Paul is the only one who will stand up to them.

I am for Santorum. Cain is one of the elites. Naive people.
