New Poll Puts Cain Ahead of Obama
I’m not terribly familiar with this firm, Poll Position, and they’re using automated voice survey techology (robo-pollsters, like Rasmussen) but their new survey result is worth mentioning because of the tidal shift it might represent: Herman Cain beating Barack Obama in a head-to-head matchup.
Yes, that Herman Cain, the widely-liked former pizza executive who most folks didn’t take seriously because he had never been elected to any public office before.
They find Cain with 43.3 percent and Obama with 41.3 percent. In their results, Cain takes 24 percent of the African-American vote.
24 percent of the African-American vote is nearly two and a half times what a Republican would normally receive. If this poll is accurate then Obama could be in deep trouble.
If Cain is the GOP nominee he will effectively neutralize the race card – Obama’s strongest weapon.
I predict an all-out offensive (and it will be very offensive) against Cain in the next few weeks. If there is any dirt under his rug or any skeletons in his closet we’re going to find out more than we ever wanted to know about them.
Second prediction – African-American members of the media will get unprecedented air time as they get the assignment of chopping down Cain. Obamanation can’t let the white guys do it because that might spark a backlash.
Stock up on popcorn. It’s about to get ugly.
