Businessman Herman Cain is the favorite of Tennessee voters for the states March 6 presidential Republican primary election, but female voters are far less likely to support him. That pattern is unlikely to change in light of allegations of sexual harassment against him, according to a new poll by the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Vanderbilt University.
Cain was the choice of 22 percent of 823 likely primary voters polled Oct. 28 through Nov. 5. The poll was conducted as the sexual harassment claims started to arise. Yet Cains support did not change much as the story unfolded. Cain beat his closest competitor, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, by eight percentage points. The actual winner of the primary was the undecideds.

article from today, but the polls is pretty old.
For all the media pimping of Slick Willard, he remains a distant second. Can you spell L-O-S-E-R? Karl Rove is fit to be tied and so are the FOX NEWS Central Boys. How dare they - the peasants to disobey the wishes of their lords!
I don’t think its changed much. The sheeple doing their own thinking? There’ll be corrective action to bring them quickly into line.
Two things are clear from this poll, said John Geer, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and co-director of the poll. First, none of the candidates are wildly popular in the state. Second, Cain draws disproportionate support from males.
But, what do the Dems in my state of Tenn. think of Herman.
Good for the people of Tennessee! They refuse to be influenced by the vile, racist ploys of Democrat politicians.
I’m sure Cain is doing fine in Tenn. I just wish this poll was more recent.
Being in Nashville, I’d say that Cain is probably up bigger than this here. We shall see.
Ban men from voting! Ban men from voting!
Liberals’ next political crusade.
Money quotes ... and “The actual winner of the primary was ‘the undecideds.’” and “Romney was the most dangerous to Obama, beating him 42 to 28 percent.”
Denial is not only a river in Egypt.
The MSM wants us to believe Romney can beat Obama when only 14% of TN Republicans support him. On what planet?
Yeah, no way Obama will win Tennessee regardless of who’s on the GOP ticket next November. These primary polls won’t tell us much of anything until about a week before the primary when voters begin to pay attention.
