    Herman Cain: For real or not

    New polls have come out today, showing Herman Cain with large primary leads in West Virginia, North Carolina, Nebraska, and a 24 point lead in his home state of Georgia. This is coupled with some strong momentum in national polling over the last two weeks. So what do you think? Does he have a real chance of winning the nomination or is he just the current holder of the "Anyone but Romney" weak support right now? I personally think he will fade in the coming three months as this "Anyone but Romney" feeling continues to cycle between Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, Cain, and maybe Palin if she decides to run.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    He's doing well in the debates, has a solid business background, presents actual ideas and plans rather than just talking points...yeah...I would say he is for real. That doesnt mean he will be or even should be the GOP candidate...but he is as likely a 'real' candidate as there is. Paul is unelectable, Bachmann has been painted as a moonbat and marginalized, Perry is...well...Perry (why did he run again?). Huntsman is probably the best candidate of the group...virtually guaranteeing he will get no press attention.

    He's always had my vote, even before he announced.

    Fair enough, I could see the support staying with the cast of candidates around him. I am just not ready to commit to it yet considering how fickle the support has been. Remember two months ago when Bachmann was the candidate to pit against Romney. Or last month when it was Perry. Now Cain seems like he could be a stronger candidate than either of them, but we shall see.

    He's intellectually empty.

    Although the GOP doesn't necessarily oppose that.

    He could be a dark horse candidate.

    Right now I am very lacking in confidence in having any clue how the republican primary will turn out. It's going to be a really interesting election season.

    Re: Herman Cain: For real or not

    I voted other.
    I dint really like any of the other answers.

    He could make some noise in the GOP, seems these days anybody can and because of that i think anything is possible in that camp.
    That being said, I answered other mainly because no matter if he gets the nod or not he wil never be president. He is a shock jock and to much of what moderates and independents don't want. He will consist too much of blind attacks, bias empty rhetoric and super partisanship than substance to be president. He and many like him on the left and right are part of the problem with politics and not part of the solution.

    Serious to make noise? Maybe
    Serious for president? nope

    You couldnt come close to filling his intellectual jock strap. I find it as idiotic and amusing when people like you challenge someone like his intelligence as when some redneck calls Obama stupid. Disagree with his positions all day long...but challenge his intellect? Go ahead...match up credentials. FM

    This late into it, if people are still quivering for Christie or panting for Palin (please good lord no) then I have to agree...this thing could land any of a dozen ways.
