Washington (CNN) - As the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination has come into sharper focus, an unlikely figure has emerged - former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain.
A CNN poll of polls indicates that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is on top of the GOP field of candidates at 23%, and Cain is just three points behind. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who was a front-runner in the national polls from late August through much of September, trails Cain at 14%. The CNN poll of polls is an average of the latest four national surveys in the GOP race. It was compiled and released Thursday,
Other than 999, Herb isn't saying much, and that has been helping him.
From Associated Press
“On Friday night Cain, who is African-American, drew about 2,000 people — some in workshirts and overalls and nearly all white — to a feed barn in rural Waverly, Tenn..”
That is the good news for Herman Cain campaign real voters they don’t miss single election
CNN and MSNBC try to knock him out. Saying his 9-9-9 won’t work and he didn’t raise enough money compare Mitt Romney and Rick Perry
Either one Cain or Mitt! Either is better than the current idiot!
Former Obama supporter-my apologies to the american people for my effort in putting inexperienced Obama in office.
vic, will you only believe 999 won't work when Gretchen Carlson says it won't?
Herman Cain gets the repub nod it will start a race war. I bet ya that
This 999 will turn into 666 pretty soon. We are giving Obama free pass by nominating Cain. This is a fact.
Romney will bring jobs with the 2012 victory-
I own a small business and i really dont look forward to another Obama term
SO i am asking all to support Romney Cain or anyone but Obama.
Herman Cain is the Huckabeee of 2012. Both came from humble beginnings and went from second tier candidates to top tier candidates without the support of big money. Both are very likable and have a good sense of humor. Cain's rise in the polls proves that message is more important than money. A good messenger don't hurt either
Cain tells blacks that they are brainwashed. He claims that they have higher unemployment because they don't want to work. And now he wants to, condescendingly, talk down to them for not supporting him because THEY are being racist? I don't think Cain is lying – I just think he's about as dead wrong as any politician or pizza baron can be. Has he mentioned how he plans to stimulate the economy or encourage American industries to bring their manufacturing BACK TO THE USA?! I didn't think so.
Talk down to voters some more, Mr. Cain, and see how much support you get out of looking down your nose at the working class folk regardless of race, religion or gender.
Well,... pizza for everyone!
►Once a long shot, Cain's surge continues
But that is only ONE side of the spectrum – that has an opinion
The more he gets “exposed” – to the majority that really matters
He will fall flat on his face and the RIGHT – will serve him on a platter
In order for him to WIN this general – He needs MY vote and maybe yours
The problem with that, however – he threw most of us out the door
You can’t call those you need – “brainwashed” or even “lazy”
He blew it by making us all ONE – So to ask for MY VOTE, he must be CRAZY!!
Mr. Cain is using the political process of running for President as his campaign to land a corporate level job. He is pandering to corporate fat cats. The Koch brothers should be interested being that Mr. Cain is willing to do anything for a buck. Oh wait, perhaps he is already in their employment! Mr. Cain would be a perfect manager for the company store.
