Cain wins state poll of Tea Party members
FultonSun ^ | 11/20/2011 | Don Norfleet

Posted on 11/20/2011 1:10:31 PM PST by South40

Herman Cain was the winner of a statewide presidential straw poll announced Saturday of all Missouri Tea Party members.

With 995 total votes counted statewide, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich were virtually tied for second at 28 percent of the vote each.

Poll totals were: Herman Cain, 320 (32 percent); Ron Paul, 282 (28 percent); Newt Gingrich, 276 (28 percent); Mitt Romney, 32 (3 percent); Michele Bachmann, 31 (3 percent); Rick Perry, 30 (3 percent); Rick Santorum, 13 (1 percent); Others, 2 percent.

Philip Todd said the one-week poll was conducted between Nov. 10 and Nov. 17 throughout Missouri.

James Holland, a Callaway County Patriot Tea Party leader, said he was not surprised by the results or by the fact that Romney, a consistent front runner in many nationwide presidential polls, had only 3 percent of the vote in the statewide poll of Tea Party members.

If Cain is told to politically go to the back of the bus I hope he decides to start up a nationwide agenda of getting Constitution loyalists to sign up, to show our numbers.

America may need a nationwide militia to clean up this complete and total corruption of Washington.

“Its an old poll”
“It was done before the allegations of misconduct”
“It was done before the effects of the conduct started affecting him in the polls”
“Some of the early polling was done well before the effects of...”

This is a shot; in the Republican foot, IMHO. But 'why ask why?' is my take.

Nothing against Herman; save his lack of experience - and knowledge, for that matter - (we do not have time for in-office training/education) and for his not handling well, the attempts by Opposition to bring scandal to his door. (Do not ascribe guilt here; just did not like his answers per 'handling'.)

Mostly; again; he is a Presidential 'rookie'. And want the best/brightest and most experienced, in these most critical times.

Mitt Romney cannot pretend to have any TEA Party support, the conservative base is not going to even give him tepid support. If he is the nominee he can’t win.

Mitt and Rick and Rick have no TEA Party support -- not in this poll, anyway.

So do I. When I first created it the DUmmies at DU questioned its authenticity and made complete fools of themselves in the process. Apparently, they thought I was trying to pass it off as a real pic of Herman Cain having killed a Rhino. lol! Eventually one pointed out what RINO means. What kooks.

“...Doesn’t quite add up, does it...”
-
Herman Cain, 320 (32 percent);
Ron Paul, 282 (28 percent);
Newt Gingrich, 276 (28 percent);
Mitt Romney, 32 (3 percent);
Michele Bachmann, 31 (3 percent);
Rick Perry, 30 (3 percent);
Rick Santorum, 13 (1 percent);
Others, (2 percent)

Sounds like it all adds up to me.

No surprise.

Tea Partiers relegated also-ran Rick Perry to the back of the pack. He managed a meager 30 votes------coming in almost last.

B-U-T shades of the Iowa Straw Poll----Perry's sap-happy handlers are sending out announcements saying "Rick won."

Anita baked him a cow pattie cake---spelling out "congratulations" on top using BBq'ed chicken livers.

That is what I have been saying. These other polls about Mitt being at 23% are pure BS. I think back to when Pat Buchanan won the first two state primaries that were hand ballots. Somehow the following primary states had electronic ballots which Pat lost. Hmmmmmm!

But South40,
dennisw guarantees that Ricardo will win in November 2012. How will that happen with 3 percent of votes. Some people will STILL be delusional and ignorant and quite frankly, STUPID believing he is the be all end all. What a bunch of trash these folks are.

“These other polls about Mitt being at 23% are pure BS”

Before everyone gets too excited, the polls showing Romney at 23% are “scientific, random samplings” of the general public. This Tea Party Patriot poll was limited to a very specific slice of the voting public, i.e., 900 members of the MO Tea Party Patriots. It’s of no more value in a national election than leading in a FR or any other online poll.

23% may not be much, but if the remaining 77% is divided among the remaining conservative candidates, with Ron Paul siphoning off a respectable %, it’s enough for Romney to win the nomination. These national polls are viewed as “pure BS” at the peril of Cain, Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Santorum and their supporters. The candidates and their campaign teams are far too savvy for that.
