Why Herman Cain Has The Potential To...Win
forbes ^ | 10/24/11 | Richard Miniter

Forget the eye-rolling. Let’s look at the numbers. Herman Cain is ahead of Romney in virtually all of the polls conducted in the past two weeks. In both Iowa and nation-wide Cain leads Romney by 30% to 22%,according to Public Policy Polling, a respected pollster. Meanwhile the latest NBC-Marist poll puts Cain ahead of Romney in South Carolina by 30%-26%, and shows Cain and Romney neck-and-neck in Florida. Cain leads in Ohio by 15%, and in Hawaii by 12%. Only in New Hampshire does Romney stubbornly hold a solid double-digit lead (15%).

What I take from the graphs is that McCain was just as limited at 25% at the same time 4 years ago, and won.

It depresses me, but I have to point it out.

I hear ya. Noting is certain when we're this far out. This time 4 years ago pro-abort candidate Rudy Giuliani was leading. Thankfully that changed.

I have faith that with his pro-abort liberal past, Republicans will reject Romney once again. But of course only time will tell.

Why can Herman get away with the stumbles and Romney and Perry can not?

We believe Herman's heart is in the right place. Romney's heart is in every place and Perry's heart with with illegal immigrants. (Unfair? Yes.)

Herman will get better every month. His instincts are right, we believe he'll make the right decision in the end.

Who else running can we rely on to make the right decision? The choices are Cain, Bachman, Santorum.

Santorum's rocket never lit. Bachman was crunched by the Perry roll out and Cain picked up that support. It ain't going back to Bachman.

I'd like to see Cain take two days for crash courses on the Life issue, Foreign Policy, Economics. Then one day a week for learning. Cain is beyond needing events alone.

I know what you’re saying: but look at what we got in 2008 instead of Romney...McInsane.

Between the two, I would’ve preferred Romney.

McInsane sucked on ice.

I don't think it mattered as the Republicans would have lost regardless.

Americans were foolish enough to believe that a smooth talking black man was going to bring 'hope and change'. White guilt and the thought that it was chic to elect a black man led to a Republican defeat.

"The choices are Cain, Bachman, Santorum."

Sorry, I'm not voting on your ballot.

Herman Cain does not look better on TV than Obama.

He will lose...

Sorry but, It is that simple.

“He will lose...”

I think the reason why the Repub race will heat up is because as Obama & Hillary knew in 2008, WHOEVER the challenger is will be the next president. Reminds me of the recall of Gray Davis in California; the race became a freak show with dozens of candidates, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gary Coleman, and I believe Arianna Huffington as well, because everyone knew that Davis was doomed.
