Cain rising in Rasmussen Poll


Romney has been campaigning for five years, and he still isn’t the frontrunner.  I have been relentlessly ruthless in my cataloguing of his flip flops and position changes.  He persists, but to what avail?  Simply put, if the media says he would be great against Obama, he is NOT our man.

Perry is out ahead of the pack and doing quite well in spite of some previous policy flaps.  His debate performances are deteriorating instead of improving, but his conservative bonafides are strong.  Yet, because of the Texas Dream Act he is floundering and in serious danger of losing his lead.

Bachmann was the champ out of the gate, but is now polling so low that her campaign is all but over.  This is due in part to numerous factual gaffes and her relentless attacks on Perry regarding the Gardasil mandate.  She was correct to call him out on it, but it has made her a one issue candidate.  It came at a time when her campaign was already weak and needed an infusion of ideas, not attacks.

Santorum has always been a conservative favorite.  He is as conservative as apple pie and wholesome.  Yet for some reason his experience as a senator and time spent as a leader doesn’t translate into presidential gravitas.  In fact, he spent an inordinate amount of time attacking Perry in Florida that came off as truly mean.  Of course he is a great American and he certainly deserves a place in the cabinet.

Newt has had stellar debate performances often providing the zinger of the night with his quick fearless wit.  If it weren’t for the personal baggage, he would definitely be the frontrunner.  There isn’t a more intelligent and well prepared candidate to be had.  Newt will make a fabulous addition to the cabinet, in almost any position, he is just that knowledgeable.  

Meanwhile the stunner has turned out to be Herman Cain.  Simple solutions, a friendly businesslike demeanor and persistence are paying off for this underdog.   After hearing Cain in person at Smart Girl Summit this summer, I have lamented the lack of momentum for his campaign.  He is the proof positive that Republicans, conservatives and Tea Party alike are clearly not racist.  He continues to rise and surprise with this latest revelation from the latest Rasmussen Reports Poll that shows President Obama with 39% to Cain’s 34%.  This is a true threat to the Obama machine and bodes very well for Cain’s candidacy.

    What distinguishes Cain from the field is that he is authentically speaking from knowledge and experience about the Republic, Capitalism, and monetary policy. They believe him, because he is genuinely concerned about people, not policy. His words communicate a vision that transcends petty divisions and differences, and unify the country toward common goals. This man is a winner, and his numbers will grow as more people realize he doesn’t waver.

    You are so right in your comments Margaret! I have always said Cain would be an amazing President or Vice President. He is conservative through and through and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Snatorum american as apple pie?? More like a german nazi who hates everyone but people who are just like him. America was founded on freedom and tolerance. Thats why I’m voting governor Gary Johnson the only real conservative. The only person on that stage that embodies the freedom and diversity that Americas founders envisioned. The govt should stay out of your wallet and your personal life.

    Under your reasoning, I am a german nazi too. Bomb throwing never takes a discussion anywhere. If you are so confident that Gov. Johnson is the best candidate, why not argue his merits instead of insulting others? Good luck with that vote for Gary.
