At best, Cain is a long long shot.
Can’t see the gop establishment allowing Herman to spoil their p*a*r*t*y. They have chosen Willard and anything less wouldn’t fit their neat plans.
“a POLL ABOUT THE POLLS”
good point. Polls would not be polls without their
inherent tendency to descend into political cannibalism.
In fact, that’s what they’re all about.
The only thing that matters is what happens down the road.
If Romney is suffering “bloom-off-the-rose” this early, it’s going to be a bloody battle at the fork that exists
somewhere “down the road” when it’s clear they’re trying to
foist Romney on us.It’ll be, in effect, a new appearance of the Tea Party , twice as determined as the one that started
getting its mood together nearly three years ago.
MEANWHILE, the Left’s “Tea Party”, Occupy Thisandthat, is acting out in perfect confluence with everything Obama has been calling for all along: they are functioning as surrogates to the Obama Agenda, and are making few friends along the way. There seems to be NO way this could be helping Obama. But is ANYONE going to ask Obama or the leading Dem spokesmen to comment on the Occupy-ers?
It would seem to be a pertinent question they’d have a difficult time answering to their benefit, which is why
you’ll never hear it from the MSM. AND is any GOP candidate going to come out and bluntly address just who these people are and be bold enough to characterize them
in just the way I have above? Are the Dems waiting for the Republicans to make the first move, or vice versa, or both?????
I vote NO. The Republican Elites have too much invested in the “status quo”.
In the primaries, it is the interested Republicans who will go to the polls to vote. THEY are the ones seeking out information about candidates, or will listen to others when they are talking about candidates. As long as Herman Cain can keep the 'buzz' going, I don't think he necessarily needs an army of volunteers. If he is the nominee, there will be the party structure behind him, we hope.
No way YES will ever win this poll. You have to account for liberals, Romney and Perry supporters (redundant, I know) voting NO.
Your #10 post was very good indeed!
Can Herman Cain win the GOP presidential nomination?
Yes - He has obviously struck a chord with Republican voters.
No - He doesn’t have the infrastructure to mount a winning campaign.
Maybe - It depends on what happens between now and the primaries.
I’m not sure.
Theoretically, yes he can. Realistically, maybe not so much. Honestly, “it depends on wht happens between now & the primaries.”
Personally, I HOPE so; we need a CHANGE. ;-’)
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
All aboard the Cain train! Wahoo
I’m on the Cain Train.
Politico must have tanked Cain’s yes votes
