2012 Iowa Republican Caucus (Cain 28% Romney 21% Paul 10%)
Rasmussen ^ | 10/20/11 | Rasmussen

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Reflecting national trends, businessman Herman Cain has now jumped to the front of the Republican pack in Iowa.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa caucus-goers shows that Cain is in front with 28% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21%. Congressman Ron Paul is a distant third at 10% followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann at 8%, and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 7%. The sixth place finish for Perry is a sharp decline from early September when Perry was the frontrunner both nationally and in Iowa.

But that can’t be. We’ve been told his numbers are slipping! We were told that Perry redeemed himself and had a strong showing during Tuesday nights cat fight.

How was Huckabee doing in national polls for that time period?

Only one-third of the caucus-goers (32%) are certain of their vote and don’t expect to change their mind. Among these voters, 30% prefer Cain, 22% Romney, and 17% Paul.

Among those absolutely certain they will show up and participate in the caucus, Cain leads Romney 31% to 18%.

These numbers are great!

>> Cain 28%, Perry 7%. Being a Perry-bot has GOT to hurt! <<

If the Perrybots continue their strategy of screaming "bigot!" "hater!!" and "purist!!!" at anyone who question's Perry's record and abilities, they'll soon end up in a "two-way race" with Huntsman. ;-)

Secondly, I don’t think Cain’s position is what you think it is when he says quite clearly that life begins at conception.

Perhaps if you had bothered to actually listen to the interview live you would have heard him qualify his opposition to abortion by saying “the decision on whether to have an abortion comes down to a choice by a woman and her family.”

His actual words.

The problem with illegals is that farmer conglomerates clearly have no morality when it comes to breaking the law and using them for casual labor.

The problem with Perry is also he teamed up with an amoral drug company to try to force Gardisil on the states young women. Sick.

PERRY DEAD LAST IN IOWA CAUCUS Perry jumped to the top without saying a word....but when he started talking, he crashed and burned fast....

Perry strutted on-stage, slapped down "heartless" conservatives....and it's been nothing but bad news for him 24/7.

How very gratifying that Perry was hoisted on his own petard----he got on all fours, all puckered up, and sucked up to Mexico, La Raza and illegals........stupidly thinking he could force Americans into this posture.

Perry's condemnation of 71% of Americans who want something done about illegals proved to be his downfall.

Let me educate you a little on illegal aliens. I do not condone illegals. They are lawbreakers. But they are here because they would rather live in the United States than in Mexico.

I really don't give a crap where "they or you would rather live". If they are here AS ILLEGAL ALIENS my position is get them out and it is a matter of political will.

Too many "I'm not a bleeding heart, mean as a snake" people, take the same, liberal bleeding heart position as you just did.

With President's like obummer, GWB {while strong on defense} was as big a tex-mex pussy as are perry and you.

Living in a border state, you become used to the ILLEGALS and make excuses for your soft spot because they are close to you.

You are part of the problem but you want to blame it on anyone else, because it's too hard to admit that overlooking little things for the past 40 years lead us into this mess.

This didn't happen overnight, it was when your parents generation knew that Pablo was here ILLEGALLY, but was such a good guy that they gave him a job.

Then Pablo brought his wife and kids, and they needed to go to school or the doctors and on and on and on....

What he is saying is that as President he can’t force his beliefs onto the rest of the citizens of this country. If the Presidency allowed for waving a wand and abolishing abortion, I think Reagan would have done that. Its going to take the Supremes to overturn Roe v Wade.

If you want a Presidency that can FORCE their beliefs onto the citizens, then stop whining about Barak/Michelle Obama.

I'll just say this as succinctly as possible. LIAR!

They’ve done away with tv, radio and newspapers as well and have gone green, relying on the pony express.

I'd rather live in Buckingham Palace, but what would happen if I snuck in there and started living there?

You really are mean as a snake, aren’t you?

Pussy?

Pablo?

Look at the guidelines == no personal attacks, no racisism or violence.

Gardisal again?

You’re really out of weapons, aren’t you people?

I see the same things posted again and again, explained again and again, refuted again and again.

But I guess that’s all you got.

Have a nice day.

I have an inkling Cain is Peroting Perry for Mittens. If it’s true, Herman is deluded that Mittens will give him the Veep slot. I have yet to see that Mormon hug any Amish...
