Looking at the internals of that Quinnipiac poll, I noticed the blacks still, predictably support Obama and the dems above the 90% level. Only 3% of blacks like Cain.

All that talk about blacks deserting Obama is just that... talk. They aren’t going anywhere.

Some guy saying “get off your ass like I did”,
or the other guy saying “it’s whitey’s fault”.

Said this yesterday, but I’ll repeat it.

Yesterday I finally got around to putting a Cain sticker on my car.

Honestly I was surprized how proud I am of it. FReepers should try it. I’m series.

"The poll, taken almost entirely before reports emerged of sexual allegations against Cain, shows him leading in a hypothetical matchup against Romney, 47 percent to 39 percent."

This is just Lucy teeing up the football. Get ready for a manufactured poll plunge later today or tomorrow. The media are hopelessly corrupt liars.

Defcon 2/Fast Pace, man the lifeboats.

This new poll and others that just keep rolling in--RINO smears or now smears--represent a most CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER to the long-standing and entrenched ELITE ESTABLISHMENT of this country as embodied in the leadership and mechanisms of both major parties at the top and even darker, nefarious interests not often in the public eye. This cuts right to the core of People Power. And they are not going to like it one bit. I would say the same thing were this Bachmann or Santorum at the top of these polls beating the likes of Romney, Perry, Huntsman, et. al, as well.

Last night Cain went head to head with Charles Krauthammer.

I don’t think there was an actual winner but Charles did not best him. He was given the last thought and word that accused Cain of being for deflation. It was a ridiculous twist of words and logic.

He was grilled by the panel and answered all questions positively, on subject and reinforced by his own talking points.

He will eat Obama alive in a debate when he gets to ask questions

That is because they are slow on the uptake. That figure will rise once Cain is actually nominated.

Most blacks do not know Cain. They have heard that he is a traitor to the race and not much else. Let them get to know him after the primaries. I think a lot will prefer Herman. It’s still early.

It (Smear-gate) is now leaving the current news cycle, evaporating very quickly. It is being eclipsed by other news. They failed.

It bounced off him. He really dodged a bullet, but I am sure they learned some good PR lessons and damage control tips. They will get more of it but Cain and his staff will only get more skillful in deflecting it. The powers that be through their muckracking media megaphones are trying desperately to perpetuate and continue the smear, but there is clearly no "there" there, and by and large average people are tuning it out.

Now they have to think of something even more vicious and dangerous. I have no allusions of the kinds of interests we are up against with the man like Herman Cain walking point for us, someone who is not a product of this system nor owned by it.

Heck. He started out at 3% within the WHITE VOTE within the GOP and grew to these numbers. Anything is possible. I do know once he secures the nomination, Lord willing, he will precisely address that segment of Americans and a lot of deep seated Democrat, victimhood planation interests are NOT GOING TO LIKE IT ONE BIT.

Um, that is not very nice. But a lot of people of all stripes are not as focused on this race yet, and a lot are democrats so not voting in our primary. Middle class & higher blacks will not be 90% for Obama if they have Herman Cain as an alternative. Obama is not even an African American.

I think Cain can get some important Southern black votes. That would help in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. The northern and western blacks are a lost cause and locked up for barry. They have been busy voting dem for a generation while the illegals steam roll them and their communities. What a bunch of dim bulbs.

“Most blacks do not know Cain”

I’d say most whites don’t know him either. I can’t say for certain where he stands on the social and political issues.

I’d appreciate it if you could let me know.

He seems to be getting more polished. At first he seemed awkward in his presentation. Romney is very polished now, but I am put off by his try to get along with everyone stands on things.

Yea!

They will come back with something. They will for one be practically wishing him dead; you know they will trot out some doctor who will swear Cain has only 2 years to live.

But there could be other things. Who knows who from his past, true or not, will be dredged up?

The most important thing to remember, if we want to choose our own conservative candidate, is to keep saying “So???”

When they say:
“this just in: we found this woman who says Herman Cain covered her in maple syrup and then ...”. “the top story to ight is that Herman. Cain once raped a dog...”. “Herman Cain defaced the Bible...”

We say:
“So???”

And we watch them lose!

Take away the leftist power! We can do it! When they try to control the story into “if Cain is guilty of this, he’s out” we need to turn the story to “if the media attacks Cain, we give Cain more money!”

It’s working so far!

The “sex” scandle will help Mr. Cain with his name recognition and also help solidify his support among black people. Nothing gets people’s attention like a “sex” story. This is a good warm up for the general. Mr. Cain is used to speaking his mind without fear of the consequences; this slap before most of the public has been paying attention will help him be a more focussed and better candidate. Mr. Cain may not be a politician, but he is a very smart man and a quick learner. I can’t wait to see him debate Obama in the general.

Agreed. AND they are using what appears (to me at least) to be a rather savvy if not obnoxious combination of both Saul Alinksy and Josef Goebbels on us. So, suffice it to say, time to brush up on the tactics of those two, and then construct potent counter strategies, narratives, spins, pivots, unexpected sucker punches from the rear and the like IN ADVANCE of them "coming back for more". Which they will.

These people are deadly serious and they have a LOT to LOSE. I mean, a LOT. It is getting very uncomfortable for them right now, expect full court press against HC, but there are ways to outsmart them and outlast them. Most of all, it will take massive amounts of average Americans rising up and scaring them. This is the one thing they do fear. Not any one politician, but the American People when they are united and outraged. It scares the living diarreah out of these bipartisan elites, take it from me.

About a month ago I eavesdropped on a conversation between husband and wife (African-American and older) at the Navy Hospital while watching CNN. They put Cain’s picture on the screen and she asked her husband who’s that? He went into great detail explaining who he was and what he stood for and that he was a republican. I waited to hear her response and all she said was, hmmmm, really? A Republican?
