Can you believe that 28% of Republican caucus goers are going to vote for Cain? Hasn’t anyone told them that this is a race between Perry and Romney?

And where is Perry, by the way. It seems that Ron Paul is beating him in this poll to. Maybe that poll in Texas that has Cain and Paul beating Perry has some value after all...

I am a little nervous about how much I am liking Cain. Everytime I hear him speak I like him more. I have been so dissappointed in the past with folks I thought were the right ones.

I am now starting to try and find some things he is weak on or that I don’t agree with so I can be objective and “balanced”.

He is my guy more and more every day.

I don’t feel great about 999, either, but Cain has been my choice since last Spring. He is still my choice.

I will not vote for Romney or any other media-picked RINO.

I will write-in Cain, and vote accordingly for the lower offices, with write-ins, if necessary.

NO - MORE - RINOs!

9-9-9 has a good chance of not passing if Cain becomes POTUS, but I adore all his other positions as well, even without 999 Cain is better than any other RINO.

Boy, won’t it be great if Romney gets “sounds-like-witch”-slapped right off the bat!

Iowans like most midwesterners, don’t go for the Texan style, and will not readily forgive smartest-guy Noot for his transgressions. Cain is not only an attractive candidate on his own, but he is the logical choice to become the anti-Romney.

And he’s got to the top slot without much money, without a huge organization, and without the RNC. Think about it.

The survey of 800 Likely Iowa Republican Caucus Participants was conducted on October 19, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports.

First major poll I've seen that takes place after the most recent CNN debate. The sample is of likely Iowa Caucus voters. Very good results. Go Herman!

Don’t fall for the disinformation about Cain these days. They are really ramping it up against him, full court press. They are desperately trying to attack him to peel way his Conservative and Tea Party base if they can and drive internecine GOP wedges, because above all people it is GOVERNOR ROMNEY (just like JOHN MCCAIN 2008) whom they want in as a shill in a fixed 2012 race to face off against. We gotta stay the course, donate, phone call, e mail or call neighbors or friends, build a ground force in Iowa, New Hampshire, S. Carolina, Florida, Nevada and elsewhere and keep the momentum, all the while speaking no evil of fellow conservatives in the race, as they are NOT our enemy but rather decent, good Patriots, and we will also need their supporters as they drop out one by one. Stay the Cain Course!!!! We are over the target, we are getting the Drive By Media surface to air missiles as was to be expected with the coveted Conservative Frontrunner status. That just the cost of it. Spiritually, surrender in faith and give it to God, and tactically, keep thinking Gandhi and will will get over this hump once they have a) ignored, b) ridiculed and c) attacked. It is the most difficult time right now, as will be late October when they are again full court press to keep Obama in office and prevent Cain from the White House.

Hermentum continues: Cain leads Ohio and HAWAII primaries

Raleigh, N.C. – The Republican presidential race is very much nationalized right now, with very few regional or state-by-state differences. Rick Perry is really cratering everywhere, and Herman Cain has led comfortably in every PPP primary poll in the last two weeks, first in rural, right-leaning states like North Carolina, West Virginia, and Nebraska, then Iowa and nationally, and now joined by states as distant and different as Ohio and Hawaii. Mitt Romney’s one true stronghold remains New England. Newt Gingrich is also on the rise, though not to the extent that Cain is.

To: All

This is big news in that it is confirming many other polls showing Cain leading in key states like Iowa, SCarolina, Floria (where he either leads or is tied), Nebraska...and a strong 2nd showing in NHampshire.

“Two things are striking in the new Poll:

1) Cain continues to surge, now showing separation from Romney
2) The 2nd Tier candidates have significant combined conservative support of 27% support, which is support that will likely go to Cain, when those candidates drop out of their campaigns.

This poll supports recent polling that have shown Cain increasing leads nationally and in key states. Here.

So, Cain is setting in strong position and his consistent intensity levels indicate he my be even stronger than he appears. The biggest caveat is the lack of an organization that will get the Caucus vote out in Iowa. Cain needs to expand his staff to meet the needs of his national popularity and he needs to capitalize on Iowa, because a win there will bring in more financial contributions and begin sifting off supporters of the 2nd tier candidates.

We should run scared even though our man, Herman Cain, is now the clear GOP 2012 frontrunner. We need to run like we are going to get a royal butt kicking, like we are 20% down. I MEAN IT! RUN SCARED!! There should be an active Cain person in every possible Iowa precinct and a strong organization nationwide. The long knives are out. This comes with the territory. I have weathered politics for many years. This does not scare nor intimidate me. It is exhilarating (to be in the lead), but the trick is to not get too cocky and to also maintain that lead. I think Herman is humble enough to continue to “run scared” and so are his supporters. We need to tune out all of the disinformation, naysaying, name calling and mud slinging coming out from his detractors on this forum, and stay positive and take the high ground.

This is a very good point.

Plus, The TEA Party will go into hyper-drive supporting
Cain. There would not be many held noses in the voting
booths November 6 (other than RINOs).

++++++++++++
I note the /sarc but organization is, I hear, very important in Iowa. If the polls hold steady until January then it seems entirely plausible that Romney’s superior organization and deeper pockets could eat into that 8 point advantage enjoyed by Cain. Romney could still win Iowa.

Amazing how Perry jumped to the top without saying a word then started talking and crashed and burned fast. He must have never debated before in his life.

Umm, I don't know either, it's probably name recognition for the most part. A GOP candidate doesn't need Iowa to win the nomination, but it is a good early barometer of national support. This:

. . .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.

is telling. It's a wide open game.

Just watched the Pierce Morgan interview with Cain.

Nothing new, except the story about how Cain had to wait to get his hair cut at the barber, and even though it was ALL black barbers, he was still not allowed to get a haircut there.

He was given the choice go across to the other side of the tracks for a haircut at the “black” barber. What he ended up doing was go to SEARS and buy himself a pair of hair clippers, and, since that day, he’s always cut his OWN HAIR!! STILL does!!

It had me in TEARS. The man has tremendous character — as do all of the black Americans who had to endure such crap in our country during that time. But Herman didn’t get mad, or hold a grudge — he just indepdently did what he HAD to do to get his hair cut.

THIS is what we SO desperately need — a president who sets the example. You run into adversity? Don’t whine, don’t blame, don’t give up ...just push through, do what you have to do, and OVERCOME.

Contrast that w/ the whiny punk in the WH now ...there is just NO comparison. NONE!!!

Definitely, our guy needs to get up to speed with not mis-speaking to the press, but the beauty of Cain is that he’s NOT had years of practice with this stuff like the other politicians. I do agree with the author, though, that he’s definitely making too many mistakes and the honeymoon won’t last forever so he better learn this stuff fast.

Not real familiar with the author of this blog, but being an Iowa Republican myself, I can certify that the state leadership is in the tank for Romney, as they always have been for the establishment candidates. The good news is that the rank and file don’t pay too much attention to the leadership.

And for your information I got your info about the petitions for Illinois and have made copies (along with the rules) and handed them out to my right wing friends trapped in this communist state.

I also focused on the rule about turning in two ballots to a notary at a time. Either way the entire suburban Chicago Congressional Districts will have Cain on the ballot no doubt.

9-9-9 has good points and bad, and ultimately, I think a final solution could be a heavily modified version of the plan.

However, what I do like, is that Herman has a giant “set” of something most of the GOP has apparently had removed, by simply being willing to address the problem.
