Herman Cain says hell decide whether to quit the presidential race within the next few days. But lets be frank: hasnt the presidential race already quit him?
Ginger Whites allegation of a 13-year affair appears to have buried whatever chance of victory Mr. Cain had. Fairly or not, his candidacy has become what you might call zombie-like. Hes still moving forward, but theres not much vitality left in his campaign.
Look at the latest state polls: in Florida, a former Cain stronghold, hes now down to around 19 percent, according to RealClearPolitics rolling average. Thats a drop of five percentage points this week. Hes gone from 19 to 15 percent in Iowa in a matter of days. Hes at 7 percent in New Hampshire, representing another five point plunge. Hes lost six points in South Carolina, down to about 17 percent.
In terms of position, hes third or fourth in all these states, and fading fast. Many polls were wrapped up in the middle of the week, and probably dont yet reflect his full loss of support. Is that Michele Bachmann Cain sees approaching in his rear-view mirror?
His numbers now are brutal. At time of writing, Intrade, the presidential predictions market, listed Cains chance of winning the GOP nod as 0.6 percent. To put that in context, Ron Paul had a 5.3 percent chance a figure nine times larger than that of the ex-Godfather's Pizza CEO.

“Herman Cain says hell decide whether to quit the presidential race within the next few days.”
When an article starts out with a complete falsehood, the rest of the article is suspect.
Well now, isn’t that what the MSM wants?
We are still behind Herman Cain!
Every time I think about this, I want to send Herman Cain a donation just to smack the LSM.
When one considers the patient and careful investigation the Enquirer did before going public with the John Edwards story, it’s clear the LSM is not at all interested in getting to the truth (one way or the other).
I want Herman Cain to stay in the race as long as possible. I don’t want to see him pushed out over these tactics.
