Yet Again More Thoughts on Cain

Russ Steele

Our local left have written off Cain in the comments of this blog. On the other hand the Republican voters in Iowa are much smarter than our local lefties, they are not buying the vague crap put out by the Politico. Here are the details from Hot Air:

Last week, the Des Moines Register did some anecdotal research in the middle of the breathless scandal coverage surrounding Herman Cain, and found that likely Iowa caucus-goers didn’t really care much about the vague, second-hand allegations percolating in the national news.  Yesterday, RCP reported that a more scientific survey from Insider Advantage shows the exact same result.  Cain now leads in Iowa by 15 points over Mitt Romney, who finds himself just a margin of error ahead of a third-place Newt Gingrich. 

Winning in Iowa is vital to the Cain Train campaign.  This will be a grass-roots win.  That said, the talking heads and the elite pundits are saying the Cain will not be the nomine. There choice is Romney!  We are being told that the Cain Train’s bubble will slowly deflate.   Wishful thinking, or reality?

Are the Tea Parties going to let this happen? I hope not, but there is still a year before the election, but only a few months before the process starts in Iowa on 2 January 2012, then New Hampshire on 10 January 2012, and Carolina on 12 January 2012, and Florida on 31 January 2012.

By the end of January we should know how much stronger the grass-roots are over the elites. Or?  Stay tuned.

  1. Maybe Herman stroked his chn again?

    I would love to have the R’s select Cain to run against President Obama, but that will not happen… bummer!

    Cain can keep saying he won’t talk about his sexual harassment allegations and Cain can keep saying it’s Perry that is driving this… but Cain is toast.

    Now the polls are starting to show the real results of this… the R’s are now backing away from Cain. Will the Tea Party stick with Cain or will they too move on to their next candidate? Buchmann and Perry were tossed by the Tea Party, now will the TP stay with Cain as he goes down too? I bet not. Ron Paul is getting more support as Cain slides down hill… where will the Tea Party go next?

    “now there are some signs that the scandal is taking a political toll on Cain. An Ipsos/Reuters poll conducted online at the end of last week showed Cain’s favorability rating among Republicans dropping 9 points, from 66% to 57%, and his rating among all voters dropping from 37% to 32%. Perhaps more worrisome for Cain was that a full 80% of respondents said they knew about the harassment allegations. One in three Republicans said the accusations made them view Cain less favorably.”

    Golly, it looks like it is “white chicks” making these allegations of chin stroking. Why would that fantasy of these women a a black man be taken seriously?

    Oh Herman! Wow!

  5. Bob says:

    This woman is obviously credible. After all it makes total sense that the first attorney a “republican” woman would choose to represent her because she wanted to come forward would be Gloria Allred.

    • Russ says:

      My question is why was she fired from the NRA? What was the reason for her removal? Was she stalking a fellow employee? Was she wearing a sexual explicit cloths, not appropriate office wear? We need to know more about this woman before we make any decisions about these claims.

    Cain is cool.
