Herman Cain enjoys bounce in Zogby
Despite the Washington media insiders' desire for a fellow insider to be the republican nominee for President, and perhaps because of it, Herman Cain passed Chris Christie in Zogby polling yesterday. Cain has 19%, Christie who's not running has 17%, and Romney the insider at 12%.
Now anything can happen in a long election season, but I think likely GOP voters don't appreciate the conservative elites like Charles Krauthammer telling them this early that a candidate is a joke. Why is Herman Cain a joke to CK? How is he any less qualified to be President than the shifty, empty-suited socialist that's there now?
I hope Herman Cain does well in the early states and gains some momentum. I'll be happy to cast a vote for him if he turns out to be the conservative that he appears to be.
