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.
Why would the clear front runner want to be VP for a far trailing loser? Doesn't make any sense.
He probably will, and in doing so will be touted by Fox and the MSM as having 'vanquished' Cain -- which is just wrong, but becoming rather clearly part of the overall plan.
There are undeniable factums going by under the radar every day -- the populace blinded by the dopey snipe hunt / Beltway kabuki / fugly pageant that is the GOP primary run-up thus far -- that confirm this. The Masters of the Universe don't pay to lose, they pay to play. The fix is in:
"Obama has hauled in $3.9 million from the finance, insurance and real estate sector so far this year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. But hes been outpaced by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has received $7.5 million from the sector.
Goldman Sachs employees who contributed more than $1 million to Obama in the 2008 election cycle are now spending more on Romney than Obama, according to CRP. Goldman Sachs employees, along with their spouses, have contributed $352,200 to Romney."
. 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%.
How many of these will go to Cain vs Romney?
Cain and Newt have commented on their likes for one another. I think Cain would benefit from Newt. I also think Cain would benefit from Bachmann.
If Bachman and Newt are out, where do Perry's votes go? I don't see them going to Romney, do you? Yeah, me either. So, I think Cain will benefit from Perry. So, that leaves Paul. That's a mixed bag, but since Cain at least wants to do something about taxes, Cain might benefit from Paul at least to a degree. You left out Santorum, and while not much, I think Cain benefits from Santorum. Romney probably benefits from Huntsman, fortunately, that would be minuscule. jmo
He really did not burn as fast as he should have. But the RINO-led, Demrat Party-controlled GOP and the Marxist propaganda organ’s shilling for him made him seem bigger than he ever was.
Bump to a good, timely post.
Yesterday in an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, I was asked questions about abortion policy and the role of the President.
I understood the thrust of the question to ask whether that I, as president, would simply order people to not seek an abortion.
My answer was focused on the role of the President. The President has no constitutional authority to order any such action by anyone. That was the point I was trying to convey.
As to my political policy view on abortion, I am 100% pro-life. End of story.
I will appoint judges who understand the original intent of the Constitution. Judges who are committed to the rule of law know that the Constitution contains no right to take the life of unborn children.
I will oppose government funding of abortion. I will veto any legislation that contains funds for Planned Parenthood. I will do everything that a President can do, consistent with his constitutional role, to advance the culture of life."
Thanks I just reposted it here
Four tickets out of Iowa, two out of New Hampshire!
>> “relying on the pony express.” <<
I guess they’re still waiting for the results of the Lincolin/Douglas debates?
Due to the shifting racial balance in this country, and the fact that those increasing groups are the true racists, a Cain/Rubio ticket could theoretically capture the White House for 16 years.
Just in theory, not saying it’s going to happen.
Just not honestly.
Nothing about the Gardasil EO fiasco has in any way been ‘refuted’ except the alleged ‘explanation.’
In addition, the FDA has just released info on 65 more deaths from the vaccine, most of which involved massive neurological damage, and repetitive seizures.
This is a movement to sexualize our teenage daughters and profit a greedy drug company, using its connections to sleezy government leadership. Is there any way to boycott Merk?
No, but they will get the results of the Iowa caucus 3 weeks later! lol (I was agreeing with you)
That is ridiculous. so now you’re citing bogus statistics and FDA stuff. please.
No child in Texas was given gardisal. Rick Perry thought it was a good idea but always gave parents an opt out.
It is still being promoted by the medical community as a safe and effective vaccine for girls.
Other states are considering it. The lie that it has caused neurological damage has been refuted.
Anyway, it didn’t happen. So, apparently that IS all you got.
” Amazing how Perry jumped to the top without saying a word then started talking and crashed and burned fast.”
Looking forward to the day Perry drops out.
Can’t happen soon enough, bet he drags it out though
