“The survey was conducted on Tuesday night following two days of media coverage concerning allegations of sexual harassment against Cain.”...

Ha! Ha!, Liberal media!

Somewhere Tokyo Rove erases his board...

...and puts something nastier on it.

I’m relishing seeing these RINOs flail around, making stuff up, twisting his words:

See “nuclear capability” of China. So, I’m to believe that a former ballistics missile technician doesn’t know that China has nuclear weapons, which he never said.

He only slightly misspoke by not clarifying...”capability”, which I’m sure, he meant to say more accurate ICBM technology etc.

Oh well, the Cain train is now breaking out away from Romney.

Is a scandal which barely moves the needle really a scandal?

Gingrich is creeping up too; 15% isn’t great, but it’s within striking distance. He’s had some recent appearances and local TV coverage in South Carolina that might have helped.

The Cain Sexual Harassment smear doesn’t have legs. America already tolerated and rewarded a known sexual-harasser, philaderer, and perjurer without any qualms. Americans generally don’t care that much about even obvious and un-contested sexual misconduct. Most people at their workplaces have been through sexual harassment seminars, and I think people have this conception that, while there are indeed situations with perverts who cross the line, said line is intentionally vague in order to benefit trial lawyers and serial suers who want money without work.

The “scandal” helped Cain more than it hurt him. It clearly showed that the establishment is out to destroy him.

They scream scandal but all Cain did was make a comment about a woman’s height decades ago. Weak attacks are worse than no attacks from the standpoint of the attacker.

SC led the slave state secession and at least one out of every three black Americans can trace their ancestry to the slave markets of Charleston. Then there is the long history of segregation, Jim Crow and KKK bozos all over the state.
ALSO,we didn't vote for Obama—probably our most “racist” act ever;)

Now we are on the CAIN TRAIN!!!

...ain't America grand?

Sheesh, this has got to be one of the BEST campaign contribution generating mechanisms I have ever seen in American politics. Brilliant. They are solidifying and rallying Herman's loyal conservative base now growing into the millions nationwide, ironically, by trying to slime him.

"So says the GOP and Karl “The Worm” Rove, the Masters of Win!"

I used to think so highly of Rove. It's disappointing seeing him mudsuck conservative choices.

I held my nose voting for McCain last time. Not this time. I will not vote for a candidate who does not espouse conservative principals.

The Republican Aristocracy hanging out at the Union League Club, act like dieties casting their lightning bolts from Mount Olympus. They had better realize they will never win a major election again without support of America's CONSERVATIVES.

These numbers will be substantially different 2 weeks from now. Cain has blown it big time and it may just be his terrible reaction to these allegations rather tahn the allegations themselves that sink him. His story has changed daily. At first I wrote that off to being blindsided by politico but them found out that he and his campaign had 10 days notice that this story was coming and they STILL fumbled like this. It’s really difficult to believe that there’s nothing there when you get this kind of response from the Cain campaign.

Don't get your hopes up too much FRiend.
Whether you agree with his methods or not,Cain is coming on stronger and stronger and as the axiom goes,nothing succeeds like success.
But what I would like to know is,will you vote for him against Obama?

Rove, honey. Is that you? Best go back on home now. This is a POST SCANDAL poll. People have had all the time they need to make a decision about Cain and his reaction. His reaction was just fine.

I been sayin’ it and sayin’ it . . . ain’t I been sayin’ it? (Cue Randy Quaid from “Independence Day”): if Cain comes in a strong second in IA and doesn’t get completely blown out in NH, he will win SC and FL. Then Willard is in deep doo.

Yes, but it’s okay for Barry Odinga-dildo 0bamarx to tour the 57 states of the US.

The hypocrisy of the Media is unbounded.

Cain is my second choice behind Perry. I was an early and enthusiastic Cain supporter. I lost some enthusiasm for him when he came out with 9-9-9, which I see as disastrously flawed. I cooled a little more when he was quick to jump on the race bandwagon against Perry regarding that stupid rock and even more the day after the Nevada debate when he was asked which of his opponents he repects the most and he said Mitt Romney.

Even still he's my second choice and I HOPE he survives this attack but I don't think he will.

If Cain goes down you will have a big problem. Perry is no longer of any relevance and this is not about to change no matter what happens to Cain. If Cain goes down, which I don't think will happen, the race will be between Gingrich and Romney.

I am convinced now that Cain has been railroaded,and he may just be the best guy left standing...However I did not believe the liberal MSM polls before, and still do not now

Make no mistake, Rasmussen and Fox are both liberal polls as well!

There are no honest pollsters, MSM/REP EST they all have an agenda

I can’t speak for others, but the slithering GOP will never have my support again.

I don’t believe that they are this stupid and strategically inept. That would mean they are quite simply the largets collection of blithering moron politicans ever assembled, but that is not the case.

They are in league with the democrats, they are doing this on purpose, this is kabuki theater designed to fool us.

Game is over, GOP.

And the interesting thing is that this is the only tactic they know of, which guarantees even more Cain lies and half-truths, which will inturn solidify and widen his base even more.

On the rock, Cain said that the name of the camp was insensitive and this was twisted to make it out that he called Perry insensitive. I believe this echos what Perry said about the rock.

On the debate question, I thought I remembered “as a businessman” being in there, but cannot seem to locate any verifiable copy of the question and answer.

9-9-9 may not be perfect, but it sure has got the others responding with ideas - as a leader should do.
