Well Would Ya Look At That: Herman “Godfather Pizza” Cain Is The Leader In A New Poll Of Republican Candidates

- By Bossip Staff

Herman’s on the rise, and you don’t want no problems with that guy…

Fueled by Tea Party supporters, conservatives and high-interest GOP primary voters, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain now leads the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

And in yet another sign of how volatile the Republican race has been with less than three months until the first nominating contests, the onetime frontrunner, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, has plummeted to third place, dropping more than 20 percentage points since late August.
“Cain is the leader … That’s the story,” said Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff.

But McInturff cautions that Cain’s ascent — and Perry’s decline — is probably not the last shakeup in a GOP race that has seen a series of sudden rises and abrupt falls (first Donald Trump, then Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and now Perry) in the field.

“There is still a long, long, long time to go,” McInturff said.

Cain checks in as the first choice of 27 percent of Republican voters in the poll, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 23 percent and Perry at 16 percent. After those three, it’s Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 11 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 8 percent, Bachmann at 5 percent and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman at 3 percent.

In the previous survey, conducted in late August, Perry led the field at 38 percent, Romney stood at 23 percent, while Cain was at only 5 percent.

Do you think Herman Cain has a chance at the Republican nomination or is he just the flavor of the month???

    These polls mean nothing this far out. That being said my interst has been piqued at the thought of an all black presidential election. Like President Obama clearly this man ain’t no punk and not that I disrespected him before, but this has amped it up a notch. Good luck to him in the primary.

    They have him there to spew caustic verbiage they cannot say themselves. He has called us racist and brain- washed. (doing the dirty job)

    He has put forward no jobs plan and his 999 rubbish goes straight to the garbage heap.

    He learned nothing from the esteemed Colin Powell. He is a bad specimen of our kind.
