Skip to comments.Zogby Poll: Cain Takes Lead over Romney
Posted on 05/23/2011 9:43:59 PM PDT by Kartographer
Herman Cain leads presumed frontrunner Mitt Romney as the top choice of Republican primary voters in the race for the 2012 Presidential nomination. Among all voters, no one in a list of 13 possible GOP candidates leads President Barack Obama.

I don’t understand why, when I was talking about how Cain, due to his elite credentials, might appeal to establishment Republicans who are currently supporting Romney, you choose to talk about another candidate? Very odd behavior.
I’m noticing that Ron Paul is #2 in New Hampshire behind Romney, since you brought him up. Ron Paul is also #2 in Texas behind Palin. More Freepers would support Ron Paul than Mitt Romney. (Most would support Sarah, if that was a choice).
I’m paying Cain a compliment, by simply pointing out that, because he was Chairman of the Kansas City Fed, establishment Republican voters will appreciate Cain’s elite resume. That’s a good thing. Cain can get more votes for Cain by taking them from potential Romney supporters. I’m saying that Cain has excellent elite credentials. I’m not criticizing Cain.
You seem to want to be arguing with someone else, or against a different set of words.
If you are referring to the Chris Wallace interview,
Wallace was talking about the Palestinian allegation
of THEIR purported ‘right of return’. THAT is why
Cain was bewildered. It was a FOX-Romney-SOROS trick.
Just another Mitt Romney -Fox/Soros - dirty trick
for which you have fallen.
In before the “Herman Cain can’t possibly win, and we shouldn’t nominate another minority because we did so bad with the last one” bots arrive.
I’m talking about how Hermain Cain has an excellent elite resume because he was the Chairman of the Kansas City Fed.
You want to talk about Ron Paul. I don’t see how that’s on point at all.
If you support Herman Cain, which I expect you do, I would think you would gather up this information and make the attempt to try to get votes from Romney supporters, Pawlenty supporters, Daniels supporters. Cain is a successful businessman, just like Romney. Romney’s appeal lies in substantial part in his being a successful businessman. Cain can appeal to the same people (people who like successful businessmen) as Romney. Bain Capital had some failures, and I’m not sure, but I think that Cain had the better record. He can claim that he’s the better businessman. A better businessman means better for the economy. These are all helpful ideas for Cain.
You don’t want to talk about Paul you just want to trash other candidates like Cain spam monkey.
Its calmed down a lot from how it was over the weekend when the Palin supporters were trashing Cain more than the Paulist.
I have to say at least the Paulist have a horse in the race Palin hasn’t even declared yet.
You ever notice how the Paul backers don’t post threads about Paul they just jump on threads about other candidates and trash them, like that’s going to earn Paul some more supporters.
How am I trashing Cain?
Herman Cain can’t possibly win in 2012 because he’s not famous enough.
Like I said go write about Paul tell us how only Pauk can save us and see where it gets you spam monkey.
Because you aren’t gaining any support for him around here.
Sounds as though Cain is...um...Able.
born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.
Cain-Palin would lead to a landslide over Obama.
you’re not criticizing Cain?
well, you are attributing things to him that are NOT accurate. I happen to know Herman, and it is crystal clear that YOU do NOT know him.....
but good luck on that Ron Paul campaign of yours....
Just a thought. I don't think Herman will be heartbroken over racial slurs. The man grew up in the South and is 65 years old. I think by now he has learned who he is and does not allow others to define him. This is a man who has literally faced death and lived to tell about it (Stage IV colon and liver cancer). He's made of stronger stuff.
You forgot to add spam monkey to your post. ;-)
Obama wasn't very famous in 2008, especially when compared to Hillary and McCain. It's a good thing the famous candidate won, because a president Obama would have been a disaster for the country.
Obama was being talked about as the candidate ever since his keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was very well known in the party and he had an apparatus in place for a long time.
While I agree that he didn't have the same name recognition amongst ordinary people that Clinton did, comparing Obama's situation to Cain is apples and oranges.
Foreign policy is Herman’s weakest point.
Many of us here on FREEP know more than our friends and family about history, economy, politics, our rights, how government works(or doesn’t work), etc....
Herman has not spent 10 years preparing to run for President. His name being mentioned as a future candidate is not the same as actually preparing for such or run- or making it a goal that one works towards. I have never known anyone in my life with more integrity than Herman Cain. And I mean REAL INTEGRITY.
It is obvious that he wasn’t familiar with the term “right of return”— but he admitted that clearly on Hannity last night.
What he does have is integrity and principles. He has great Leadership- and he will lead with his principles and integrity.
I am a big fan of Bachman and Palin- but I believe Herman Cain is the BEST person for President. I admit, knowing him personally give me a bit of bias- but there is no doubt that I would rather have a man of principle and integrity in office making decisions than politicos that will govern based on their own self interests- no matter how much more “knowledge” they have on foreign affairs....
I thought that would be redundant!
