Skip to comments.Cain surges despite scandal (Cain 32% Romney 15%)

Our new national poll finds Herman Cain is the breakaway frontrunner for the 2012 Republican nomination despite the fresh disclosure that he faced sexual harassment in the 1990s.
More Republicans and independents than ever say they want Herman Cain to win the Republican nomination.
Our national scientific poll was conducted last night, two days after the Cain controversy erupted and one day after Cain emphatically denied ever committing sexual harassment.
Among Republicans, Cain tops his next closest challenger, Mitt Romney, 33%-18%. They were followed by Newt Gingrich at 17% and Rick Perry at 12%.
Independents favored Cain over Romney 30%-11%, with Ginrich at 9% and Perry at 6%.
Among Republicans and independents combined, Cain garnered 32%, Romney 15%, Gingrich 13%, and Rick Perry 9%.
The poll question: Who do you want to win the 2012 Republican presidential nomination Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, or someone else?
Our national scientific telephone survey was conducted November 1, 2011. We interviewed 1,032 registered voters 417 Republicans (margin of error +/- 5%) and 343 independents (margin of error +/- 5%). The combined tally of 760 Republicans and independents has a margin of error of +/- 4%.

This was taken complete AFTER the scandal broke!
Someone on Fox actually made a distinction between sex scandals and workplace sexism.
There may be hope.
Don’t they really mean “attempted scandal”?
“Our new national poll finds Herman Cain is the breakaway frontrunner for the 2012 Republican nomination”
I am really excited right now.
I think that people are awake and paying attention to the Alinsky tactics of the Marxists in the Media and the Regime.
This crap is going to backfire, big time.
Because of. People recognize a political smear, when they see it.
Making some hysterical Liberal woman "uncomfortable" is not a scandal.
Trying to turn it into a scandal IS a scandal.
The enemy of my enemy is my candidate.
Nice try MSM, but you convinced us long ago that allegations of sexual misconduct don’t matter.
Good. Regardless of what happens heading into Iowa, Herman Cain needs to succeed or fail based on the issues of the day and his ideas on how to handle it. These manufactured ‘scandals’ are a blight on our system.
the GOP DC Establishment meetings must sound like kernels of corn that have been sitting in oil over an open fire....
a Cain/Gingrich ticket sounds good to me
The best part....
The is BACKFIRING ON ROMNEY!
I agree Cain/Gingrich = Dream ticket
They richly deserve it.
Americans are getting a bellyfull of nasty Democrat politics.
Although I suspect this little trick was played by a Romneycare RINO Republican.
A Democrat would have waited in the bush’s with this one.
Romney’s numbers have gone down.
That’s the even bigger news in this.
Apparently either (1) Voters believe Romney is behind the smear, or (2) voters are so mad at the establishment media/GOP over this they are taking it out on the establishment candidate.
So far, the only "scandal" is the malicious attempt at character assassination by the Soros-owned "media."
No wonder so many people don't believe their crap anymore.
Independents favored Cain over Romney .... 30 to 17??
Talked to a Ron Paul supporter last night ..he said of course he loves Paul, but Herman “will do.”
Paul supporters who eventually come to their senses (my own daughter included) could provide powerful sway as well.
Keep it going Herman!!!!!
