Yee Haaa- Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll

Screen grab from Drudge Report

Drudge reports that businessman Herman Cain scored a major upset Saturday, winning the Florida straw poll and creating a new set of problems for Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The final tally: Cain carried 37% of the vote, Perry 15% and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney 14%. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum was at 11%, Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 10% and former House speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%. Trailing far behind were former Utah governor Jon Huntsman and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, at 2%.

I watched only part of the debate, but in the parts I saw, Cain in my humble opinion won hands down. Cain and Gingrich are the only contenders with rhetoric that takes the fight firmly and directly to Obama.

I said way back in mid August I was backing Cain (and Palin).

  1. Reality bites.
    Cain had T3 maybe T4 colon spread to liver cancer 5 years ago.
    There is no such thing as survival long term from such a condition. That he has had 5 years is medicine’s pollyanna definition of cured these days. The 10 year survival hovers around nil.

    The maths don’t work for Herman, and that’s a bloody pity.


  2. As Andrew Bolt said today, Run, Christie, Run

    Chris Christie vs Mahmoud Abbas, and/or ArmedDinnerJacket, and/or pretty much any other goat-humping paedophile in the Middle East. I’d buy tickets for that one, and have $100 for a win on Chris Christie!


  3. Christie is a typical New York RINO- a gun grabber, a global warming advocate and a fan of amnesty for illegals.

    He’s good against the unions, but he’d be just another Bush style Republican in the Presidency.


  4. I think he was pro-Obamacare too, although I’d need to look it up to be sure. See this comment re Herman Cain on bolts site?

    “I watched this abusive thug a while back “hollerin’” his pro life bunkum. A walking advertisement for what three buckets of fried chicken a day will do to your intellect.”

    Man the left are such hate filled little people.


  5. Hate-filled is definitely the term for it. When the bad stuff starts, it sure won’t be us starting it.

    I’m listening to the podcast of the Slightly Correct Political Show now – agreeing with your comment at Slater’s place so far.


  6. FFS Colin Craig should spend some of those millions on some damn elocution lessons. He sounds like a cross between John Key and bloody Minto!


  7. Yep. A little disappointed at the gaping policy gaps, but I suppose that’s to be expected with a brand new party. Regardless, the Conservative Party will be getting my tick. I see they’ll be included in the Horizon poll in October. It will be interesting to see what sort of numbers they get.

    The other interesting thing is all the “pundits” (Slater, NeverHadA Farrar, et. al.) are writing Craig off in Rodney. Personally, I think he’s in with a shot.


  8. Not so hard a choice.
    Christie or Romney ….CC thanks.
    What a candidate’s position is on the 2nd is irrelevant, SCOTUS has reaffirmed “the people’s right to bear” many times.

    Illegals? A permanent irreversible demographic shift is overtaking the US, the mendicant underclasses will eventually have the numbers and vote in a block , aka ‘blacks for Obama”, 96%.
    Within 30 years the US will have a permanent Oby style Presidency.

    Sic transit gloria mundi.
