Way to go, Hermanator!!
Sounds like we have a winner.
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.
Toot, toot. :)
I’d even settle for Cain/Romney but NEVER THE OTHER WAY AROUND
Zogby has no credibility whatsoever.
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.
IT’S A HURRICAIN!!
THE SURGE IS GOING TO GET YOU!!
I don’t trust Zogby but this is excellent news if these numbers are anywhere near true.
Zogby is the Dick Morris of polling
Yes, it is zogby, but I love making the Cain people happy :P
Amen, and not that Palin is not running, it will be interesting to see who the “kingmaker” supports.
The MSM will become impotent.
the wise elderly gentleman versus empty suit narcissistic sociopath.
Morris has been saying Palin will not run for months now.
I'm wondering about that 24%...................
Holy . . . well, excrement.
"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.
“So were going to see Bachmann and Santorum gang up on him next time.”
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.
Was estatic until I saw it was zogby
LOL! Well, I was thinking Dick Cheney but Liz would be great too. She could kick Biden’s butt in the VP debate.
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.
But, alas, he’s on a book tour.
As a Palin sucker, I have a sense that she will back Perry. Any judgement she now makes will be highly suspect by me.
Even a dead frog is right twice a month.
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.
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:
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
“Ill be a little disappointed if this happens, but politics being what they are, I wouldnt be completely surprised.”
It’s the only thing they know how to do. They can’t inspire anyone. Just wasting time.
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.
Toot, toot. :)
Arkansas this weekend. This one could get out of hand...
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.
U got that right. So far I am VERY satisfied with Cain..He has my vote
Secretary of Defense=Col. Allen West
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?
I thought the same thing about South Carolina.
Where was that defense last year!!!
But Arkansas is looking damm good.
I see the book tour has really been detrimental to his polling!
Some in the media are referring to Cain as an “African American”.
Well, that’s just not accurate.
Obama’s the African.
Cain’s the American.
But, Zogby has far more credibility than Mittens and the rest of the Obamacare flippers.
