Cain Leads GOP Field in SOUTH CAROLINA!

By Albert N. Milliron

It has been said that political primaries are like biblical time, one day can be like a thousand years.  Having said that, This writer, said nearly two Months ago that we thought Herman Cain could win the “First in the South” South Carolina Republican Primary.

In a discussion with Meghan McCain, we predicted a Romney Win in New Hampshire (no stretch there) but said that Herman Cain is our predicted winner for the South Carolina Primary.

While Cains Lead over Romney is just one percentage point and falls within the polls margin of error, we still see this as significant.

Herman Cain leads the South Carolina Republican presidential primary with 26%. Cain is followed closely by Mitt Romney at 25%. Rick Perry is third at 15%.

In July, Romney was leading with 25%, followed by Sarah Palin at 16%, Michele Bachmann at 13%, and Herman Cain at 10%.

Among likely primary voters considering themselves to be Republicans, Cain and Romney are tied at 27% each, followed by Perry at 15%.

Among Tea Party supporters, Cain leads with 35%, followed by Perry at 16% and Romney at 15%.

Among those saying they are not Tea Party supporters or are undecided about the Tea Party, Romney leads with 33%, followed by Cain at 19%, Perry at 14%, and Ron Paul at 10%.

Details from the survey of 600 likely Republican primary voters conducted October 5-10 can be found here.
