The Democrats are going to have to search for another talking point. Herman Cain calls himself an ABC, an American Black Conservative. After all the Racist accusations by the Left about the Tea Party and Republicans in General, A Black Man is leading the Polls in several Southern states.
As we have said here on many occasions, the Attacks on President Barack Obama have NOT been about the color of his skin, it has been about his ideology. It has been about his views on the role of Government.
All we can say to the Democrat Strategists who want to use race in this Race….. Put that in your pipe and Smoke it!
The latest Zogby Poll and minor state polls, show Cain with as much as a 20 point lead above his nearest GOP competitor and for the first time Cain is beating Obama in Head to head Match-ups.
In news sure to inject shock and awe into the Republican political primary season, a Zogby poll released Thursday showed Herman Cain leading the Republican field, topping former front-runner Mitt Romney by an astonishing 20 points. Cain would also narrowly edge out Obama in a general election, the poll found, by a 46 to 44 margin.
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, would lose by a point to the president, 40 percent to 41 percent. Texas governor Rick Perry, who has slipped in the polls of late, would lose to the president 45 percent to 40 percent.
The poll found that 38 percent of Republican primary voters said they would vote for Cain if the primary were held today. Eighteen percent said they would throw their support to Romney, while 12 percent each said they would vote for Perry and Texas congressman Ron Paul. No other candidate attracted double-digit support.
Cain Jumps to Top of GOP Field in Four State Polls
Herman Cain has surged to the top of the GOP field in West Virginia, North Carolina, Nebraska and Georgia, according to polls released Tuesday, riding the momentum he gained through a series of well-received debate performances and a Florida straw poll victory. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has also risen toward the top of these hypothetical ballots, taking second place in all four states.
