Remember when Iowa was going to be a battle between Perry and Bachmann for the conservative vote? Hes now at 5.9 percent, shes at 3.9 percent. Theyre barely ahead of Newt Gingrich combined.
Cain by 10 with the caucuses just 75 or so days away. Unless hes taken major damage over this weeks abortion kerfuffle, which I doubt, I dont see why he cant be this cycles Huckabee.

As it should be.
You got that right. Cain 2012. Proud to be able to have a great President again.
Interesting that Cain leads by far among those who identify as Strong GOP -and- very high among those as Not Strong GOP.
Karl Rove told Greta tonight that Newt spent all day in a museum in Chicago looking at dinosaur bones. He said he _should_ be in Iowa pressin’ the flesh. Like my bro Rick Perry should be.

Gingrigh is just waiting in the weeds.
It is hard to figure Newt. It is almost as if he is shooting for Secretary of State in sombody else's administration.
Yet Romney still treats Perry as his main rival.
I used to have a tremendous amount of respect for Karl Rove, until I realized that he had passed over to the dark side.
It is hard to figure Newt. It is almost as if he is shooting for Secretary of State in sombody else’s administration.
Bingo. My guess is Newt would take any cabinet position offered. He’s a politician at heart.
9-9-9 is now 9-0-9, which is the same old stuff we've gotten from politicians forever.
His lack of a strong opinion on abortion makes me wonder if he isn't as big a compromiser as Romney.
It's so sad there are no real men in this race.
You might want to read this, re: Cain and abortion:
Since when has any politician suggested those below the poverty line pay 9%?
Cain’s plan has them still paying 9% in sales tax, just not the 1.35% income tax they would have to pay. (9 - 7.65% payroll tax = 1.35%)
Yep, and if not he’ll take speaking and TV appearances for 10X what he used to get paid for them. Mama needs new ice!

Allahpundit’s been gunning for Romney.
Still don’t understand why Romney is still up in the numbers?
What do you mean lack of strong opinion on abortion? He said he’s personally pro-life, but doesn’t see it as the government’s role to tell people what to do.
Romney is in the leader's jersey, but, he is in the peloton riding ahead of the chaos to avoid the crashes- yet not willing to send his team to the front this early.
Then we had an attack from Perry, but he was run down and is going backwards. Cain was in that chase group, drafting up until now and is staying at the front. The attacks are coming again and it is like a break away attempt that goes too soon and can't hold on.
It looks like he's gone too soon and may not have the support to take it home.
With all of the teams lining up and marking the favorites, might it be Noot who is looking for the right wheel and the open lane to jump out and take it all?
