Okay, forget the fact that Herman Cain has decided to take a month off from the campaign trail to promote a book, casting doubts on whether his campaign is authentic or just a cheap ploy to get publicity. Forget that.
A new CBS poll has the ‘pizza man turn book promoter’ tied with Mitt Romney to lead the Republican presidential field.
This is where we say LOL!
The poll shows Cain, who stood at just five percent support two weeks ago, now holding 17 percent support among Republican primary voters. That puts the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO into a tie with Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, whose support has essentially held steady over the past two weeks.
Perry, meanwhile, has dropped from 23 percent support to just 12 percent support over the past two weeks, a sign that the Texas governor’s shaky debate performances – in which he has alienated portions of both the Republican base and the party establishment – have taken their toll.
This poll was conducted by telephone from September 28-October 2, 2011 among 1,012 adults nationwide.
Cain is trying to decide whether he wants to be a good campaigner, a good book promoter or a good pizza man, or all three. But whatever he is, Republicans want him to lead the greatest nation on earth. WOW!0
