I’ve been kinda partial to Herman Cain for most of this year now, and I have been a bit disappointed at how he has been languishing in the polls since things started hotting up.
Then we get to this week.
Suddenly, out of the blue, Herman won the Florida straw poll. Not just winning it, but with more than double the support of the next candidate, the previously booming Rick Perry.
All right, that’s one data point, and a single data point does not a trend make. However, we now got the latest Zogby poll; taken before the Florida vote it has Herman not just front runner, but leading Perry, at number 2, by ten points, 28% to 18%.
He will be a gift to the progressives tho, I can imagine so many of them getting orgasmic at the excitement of calling him an Uncle Tom and an oreo, or a coconut in the non oreo eating world. Accusing everyone who supports him of being a racist, without indulging in the least introspection.
This is shaping up to be a fun campaign.
