I’d like to see his numbers for a poll taken after Sarah’s announcement. I’m okay with Cain/DeMint, Cain/Perry (unlikely), or quite a few other Cain combinations. I just hope and pray that he can stop Romney.

Yeah, I agree. Cain is almost certainly the way to go at this point. Win-win.

Once Palin endorses him and goes out on the stump with him, look for a real rocket shot to the top. I could see the other candidates dropping out and endorsing him. The GOP Estab must be hating this. The Dana Perinos and Michael Barones.

well, let’s just see how he holds up. Until this point it was romney vs perry with a “Hello, I’m Herman Cain.” So we’re going to see Bachmann and Santorum gang up on him next time.

this was done oct 3rd-5th so it doesn’t reflect the Palin announcement, which actually might boost his numbers even higher.

I thought this was settled last time around.

"IBOPE Zogby International also conducted an online survey of 796 likely Republican primary voters."

Its a on-line poll taken of self-identified Republicans who CHOSE to register with IBOPE/Zogby. This was not a standard randon scientific poll. Its no different then Harris Interactive polling. Still, it makes Cain look good, or may be better then he should look.

I’ll be a little disappointed if this happens, but politics being what they are, I wouldn’t be completely surprised.

The poll was for Oct 3 to 5—which means,depending on what time of day the poll ended,Sarah’s announcement to not run was probable not too widely known as yet but those that had heard gave Cain the big bump.
The next poll will be taken with EVERYBODY knowing!

Romney and Perry with all that big RINO money are going to be the most expensive losers in political history.

I love Cain, who wouldn’t? But I am “concerned” that he will either go soft against Obama (worried about that with all of them) and that the media will invent some phony sex thing against him. Oh well, let’s face it they’ll do that with anyone running against their saviour. Obama sure has to go, just to slap the media in the face.

As a Palin sucker, I have a sense that she will back Perry. Any judgement she now makes will be highly suspect by me.

But, but, but... the Romneybots all said that they only way we can win is to vote for Romney even if he is only 40% conservative. The Romneybots all said that once Palin and Perry were out of the race the only choice remaining was Romney. The Romneybots all said that Romney was the only one who could beat Obama.

So can I now have some hope of never again seeing a stinking post telling me I have to hold my nose and vote for Romney.

This is “hugh” and “series.”

Cain is ELECTABLE. Although I’ve long been convinced that if Cain could jump the much more difficult path to the nomination itself, that he could win against Obama, but with his lack of name recognition, I didn’t expect to see him LEADING Obama in any poll this soon.

Zoby Poll direction has been accurate to date. They select people on the internet, it’s not some junk poll on a website like on a regular web page.

They are probably polling a slightly more educated and politically in tune sample...but they have nailed the Cain surge momentum.

Cain can easily balance out his lack of DC experience with a good VP. Someone with decent conservative credentials but knows how Washington works.

My choices:

1. Newt Gingrich. Normally, I’d say a guy like Newt is too old and too unlikeable, but, in this environment, I think he might be what Cain needs to learn Washington’s ways quickly and efficiently.

2. Paul Ryan. Younger and better looking than Newt, and reliably conservative, with DC experience.

3. Jim DeMint - self explanatory.

Since you brought it up:

Pres=Cain
VP=undecided (prefer Palin but don’t think she will run)
Chief of Staff=Gingrich
Sec of Treasury=Romney
Director of IRS=Bachman
Sec of Energy=Palin
Sec of Interior=Perry
Sec of State = Bolton
WH Budget Director = Cantor

As a Palin sucker

I don't see how you can be a sucker. If Palin said she was running and you believed her and then she didn't, maybe you would be a "sucker". But Palin never said she was going to run. I don't get all of the remorse.

How about a foreign policy powerhouse, and announce in advance that they will be Secretary of State?

With Cain’s health concern, it should be someone presently Presidential with gravitas, not a Palin, Ryan, Rubio, or Bachmann. Newt’s not a bad call. DeMint is on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, so would fill that bill.

I can think of a lot of good reasons not to pick Condi Rice, but her name comes to mind.

GEEEZERS, we are desperate to lionize, and since madness is somewhat involved in lionizing we are overdue for a good drunk. Sorry about that example, it is not a reflection on his having had white wine for breakfast, (a sure smear from media) but tell me, where did this man come from? Perfection is very scary for me given that Christ our Salvation has not returned yet. Is he married? Children? Does anyone know?

Some in the media are referring to Cain as an “African American”.

Well, that’s just not accurate.
