Good for him. Big state, borders his home state. It’s nice to see anyone win a straw poll other than you-know-who. Cain RAWKS!

No more will the MSM tell us who are candidates are. No more holding our nose and voting. We the people. Something is happening folks. America wants solutions not politics as usual. Now what? He needs money. He needs volunteers. I am on board. May God bless America. May God keep him safe.

But but but the State-Run Media, the Demoscrats, and RINO cpundits have picked Mittens to be our candidate. We may need to report all of this to AttackWash or FRAG@WhiteCrib.net.

The GOP leadership has just been put on notice.

The Party rank and file wants a real conservative with the guts and intelligence to get things done.

Yup! All of the panic juiced up by the Perry supporters that we’d be stuck with Romney has just been disproved.

Go Cain!!!

Excellent news.

The news pulverizes the media’s message over the past month that the field is already whittled down to just Perry and Romney.

Herman Cain - 996
Rick Perry - TK
Mitt Romney - 372
Rick Santorum - 289
Ron Paul - 276
Newt Gingrich - 224
Jon Huntsman - 60
Michele Bachmann - 40

I would guess Perry around 400 votes, some reason they have not put his there

How will the media spin this;) Cain is simply untouchable. They would never dare assault him in print - as they have with Sarah, Newt, Bachman and Perry.

I bet Mr. Cain’s smile is making his teeth hurt!!!

It’s fun hearing the excuses from the pundits. I actually heard one postulate that the reason Herman Cain won was that delegates wanted Perry & Romney to stop bickering. Apparently that’s the standard excuse when the MSM’s candidates don’t win.

I’m happy to see this, myself. Cain wasn’t my first choice, but my first choice may have gaffed herself out of contention. That being the case, I’ll gladly support Cain.

looking at the votes, it would seem Perry is getting some benefit of doubt, Mittens is stuck on losing the south, Florida was supposed to be a boost for him, thats deadly. Herman got a boost, so did santorum. Huntsman and Bachmann are beginnning to look dead in the water, unfortunately for her

I must say that I like the turn of events later. Perry choking in debate and Cain handing Perry a proper @ss kicking in Straw. Alabama in comfortable lead against Arkansas. Weekend looking Great!

Straw Polls are not very accurate - even RuPaul wins more than his fair share.

That said, this is GREAT news just to keep the 2 RINOs (PerryCare and RomneyCare) from winning a useless poll.

Sarah is smiling, too with these results...patience is good.

Herman work hard for this earlier in the week he had a meeting with folks at 7:30 AM in my community. He had other meetings with folks the same day. Herman has been busy and is very likeable. I would be proud to have him in the Oval Office.
