Of course Bill Kristol said this morning that we all knew Cain was not going to be the nominee. It appears Bill is not paying attention.
Watched the Cain-Gingrich debate last night. Cain is beginning to grow on me. I think I could live with Gingrich as VP.
Thanks Barnacle Centurion! I have been waiting to ping this poll! :D
Wow, now that’s one heck of a statement!
Frankly I think Newt would be a great VP but am really leery of him in the top spot.
Rick Perry at 5.8% up two tenths of a percent. Looks like he's got the 'big mo'. He's the only one who can beat Romney dontchaknow?
Pigs are flying!!!..Hell is freezing over...(g)
But, but Huntsman more than DOUBLED his numbers! His campaign must be ecstatic!
Oh My, Rove will not like this poll.
I agree. I think as a tag team, they would be historical especially coupled with the pickup in the Senate seats, we yet may have a chance
I think in a debate with Cain,obama would be extremely arrogant and condescending,even more so than he is,I don’t think he would be able to stop himself,Cain would look like the adult in the room.
As Speaker - Gingrich pushed conservative principles on a liberal Bill Clinton - with a socialist spouse.
As a co-author of the 1994 Contract with America, Gingrich was in the forefront of the Republican Party’s dramatic success in that year’s Congressional elections and subsequently was elected Speaker of the House. In 1995, Time magazine named him “Man of the Year” for his role in leading the Republican Revolution in the House, ending 40 years of the Democratic Party being in the majority. During his tenure as Speaker, he represented the public face of the Republican opposition to President Bill Clinton. Under his Speakership, Congress passed and Clinton signed the 1996 reform of welfare, a capital gains tax cut and the first balanced budget since 1969.
He gave his full measure and was pummelled by false ethics charges and back-stabbing GOP colleagues - plus the ubiquitous liberal media.
Newt is a survivor and as POTUS with a loyal VP would be liberated to lead the Nation. Or as VP to a charismatic, equally conservative POTUS - they would be unstoppable. JMHO
My wife and I both like Gingrich and Cain. Gingrich has a wealth of knowledge, knows how Washington operates but we think he would be better in the VP slot. As for Kristol - he is a Beltway hack and lacks credibility any longer.
Whenever I listen to Bill Kristol, I always try to remember that he’s the one who advised Dan Quayle to correct the spelling mistakes of school kids...
The establishment told us he peaked a month ago. They said he doesn't know how to run a campaign, that he doesn't have enough money and is not spending enough time in Iowa (even though no one else but Bachmann has spent much more time there,) but that Cain Train -- fueled by People Power -- just keeps a rollin'!
The debate last night was so refreshing. Listening to the candidate actually speak with intelligence, without the asinine liberal moderators, is how all the debates should be handled. I, too, could live with Newt as VP.
By the way, Insider Advantage successfully polled the winners of the Iowa caucus in 2004 and 2008.
I think Romney is crying into his ginger ale now. He thought the nomination was his! He thought he could be the Next Bob Dole. (it’s MY turn!)
Yes, we need somebody as VP who can outdo the savvy and wit of (don't mess with) Joe Biden in a debate! ~snort
Not to mention he'd insist on having an extra-large Presidential Seal affixed to his podium.
OK, that’s really funny just to think about right there!
On a serious note, Newt would mop up anyone they might bring in to replace Biden.
Today my dream ticket is Gingrich/Cain. I’ve let Sarah go. Would be happy with Cain/Gingrich too.
LOL!...ME,ME,ME, MINE, MINE, MINE,... NOW, NOW, NOW
Agree 100%. Cain is the outsider, Newt is the insider (but with a good track record when it comes to getting legislation passed!!!)
I can hear the libs screaming about foreign policy, well what foreign policy does Rick Perry have other than pandering to Mexico? What about Myth, maybe dealing with the crooks on the Olympic Committee? And then you have Zero, prior, his only foreign policy experience well was ZERO!!!
Yeah...but Cain will have an even bigger "Seal of the President Elect"
or pointedly refer to 0bambi's seal as another waste of taxpayer money....
HAHAHAHA and miraculously they spelled his name correctly!!!
Cain has that spark of leadership charisma that Newt lacks, although it us undisputed that Newt is a brilliant man.
They would make a magnificent President/Vice President combo.
Can you imagine the Zero-Cain and Biden-Gingrich debates? :-)
where the added 9 represents closing down 9 gobmint departments.
Cain has peaked and has nowhere to go but down.
His performance on camera is dismal, and he has no grasp of the issues.
Blah, blah, blah.... (insert candidate in single digits here) would be a much better choice.
Less than 2 MONTHS to the Iowa Caucus...and Cain is starting to consolidate and pull away.
Also imagine a Gingrich / Biden Debate... Man that would be better than a Gingrich / O debate and the gaffs would be priceless.
“Cain is beginning to grow on me.”
I LOVE IT!!!
Sarah “releasing” me was very hard for me to take. I cried and threw myself around for a few days because I thought this is it, America is over.
I had no choice but to look at our “current crop”. Of course after looking, I land on the man who was at the bottom (at the time).....Cain.
I’ve seen him before speaking at Tea Parties, reading columns, etc, but never considered anyone but Sarah (I’m very loyal).
Now, I had no choice. In regards to his winning the Florida straw poll, I do not believe it was coincidental just days before Sarah announced she was not running.
Nor do I believe it is coincidence that Cain is at the top since Sarah’s announcement.
The only difference between them is she’s a girl and his skin is a tad bit darker than hers.
I do like Newt, but I can’t turn my back on him. He is a great manager, but not such a good leader.
I believe a Cain/Gingrich 2012 ticket to be one of success. Not only to win the election, but to get our country back to it’s original foundation.
And all of this despite the allegations and Cain not in Iowa live mode yet.
OMGosh, I’d kill, okay, maybe just maim, to see that one!
I’d love to see someone debate Doofus Biden! Maybe Newt can ask Joe about his obsession with squirt gun fights on the White House lawn.
I first heard about Cain back in May. Never seriously considered Palin. She had been through the media circus four years ago, and pretty much unrelenting as governor through to now.
I suspected she wouldn’t run. I was always a bit surprised at the number of people who thought she would. Now I love the lady, but I didn’t think she’d enter again because once is enough for her and her family.
Once I started looking at Cain, I thought, here’s our man. Nobody else sees this yet, but I could see him as the president of the United States.
I’ve been delighted to see his rise, and welcome everyone else aboard. We need all the good folks we can get to pink slip Obama.
I’m calling BS on this poll. There is no way Huntsman has skyrocketed to 2%.

“Cain has that spark of leadership charisma that Newt lacks, although it us undisputed that Newt is a brilliant man. They would make a magnificent President/Vice President combo.”
Their skills compliment each other, and they get along. I think they should skip the “wait until the convention” bullmitt and announce as a team soon.
I don't have a favorite, and I understand your point about Newt not being faithful...in more ways than one, actually. :) The thing I always keep in mind is that if a candidate believes in my ideas, it's only one factor of several. His or her ability to deliver is another.
As an example, suppose there are two candidates. Candidate A supports banning all abortions, period. Candidate B opposes abortion, but has a variety of exceptions such as the morning after pill, rape, and incest. Both A and B were in office before, but A accomplished nothing while B managed to get legislation in place for mandatory ultrasounds and parental notification. Some people would pick A and demonize B for not being pure.
I'm not saying any candidate is a pure conservative, but I give some weight to Gingrich because he has shown an ability to get good legislation through. But since my state's primary comes very late, the decision will be made before I can vote, so I will continue supporting no one until all of you pick the winner. :)
When she arrived on the national scene, my first thought was here is our next President (2012).
I NEVER suspected she wouldn’t run, because she has been running all along, until her announcement. I think something may have happened or she was shown something by Him to reverse course.
I know a lot of people don’t believe He actually speaks with His people, but the Bible did state at the end of times, He would be speaking to His once again.
I have no idea why she decided not to run, except for what she says...and I believe her.
She did say....not yet. Perhaps she will be the one to be handed the reigns from Cain in 2016 and continue to save our country from ruins.
Only He knows. And I certainly pray He has forgiven us for our trepasses.
Except that it's not even close to 9%. It's 9% income, 9% sales, and 9% corporate. Of course that's just the start. With the new national sales tax in place, the Democrats will use that tool in the future to tax us to death. As Wilson presided over the income tax, will there be a President Cain who will be known as the one who started the national sales tax? No, I think the American people will rebel before we let that snake in the door! If we first chase out the income tax snake, then fine, but not both.
Now, where's that gif of Cain cracking that smile?
