Looks like ol’ Herman “That Isht Cray” Cain is applying some pressure to these muhfuggas!
Businessman and conservative radio talk show host Herman Cain came out on top in a CBS/New York Times poll measuring support among likely Republican primary voters that was released Tuesday.
In the first poll since CNN’s Western Republican debate, Cain is ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by four percentage points, within the sampling error for the survey.
One quarter of GOP primary voters support Cain, who has surged in national polls recently due in part, perhaps, to his easy-to-understand “9-9-9” economic plan and consistent debate performances. Romney received 21% support.
As for the rest of the pack…
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich netted 10% followed by Texas Rep. Ron Paul at eight percent.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has fallen to fifth place after early stumbles in candidate debates. He’s also been hemmed in with stinging critiques from rivals on his positions regarding immigration and his support for a mandatory HPV vaccine.
Perry received 6% support in the poll, half the amount he received in early October.
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has also fallen out of favor it seems, after winning the critical Iowa straw poll in August. With two percent support, the congresswoman has struggled to stay relevant as public bickering between former and current staffers exploded in New Hampshire.
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman tied at one percent.
What y’all gon’ do with the boy Herman Cain?!
