    Social conservatives who want to legislate from the bible and who support taking away liberties for security purposes. You know, PATACT, anti-gay marriage, anti-choice, smoking bans, etc

    If you don't see how most repubs support big gov you need to pay more attention.
    Sorry, except for smoking bans (That's a liberal thing) I don't see those things as big government.

    The other I noticed is he is extremely weak in terms of foreign policy. Between watching this and his gaffes during the Republican debate he stands a real risk of ceding foreign policy, a traditionally conservative plank, to President Obama if he is not careful.
    LOL, Speech writer. Yea, I'm sure Cain has speech writers.
    For, his couple of bad habits (I don't know what you mean) and I don't believe they would need "fixed"
    One reason people like Cain is that he speaks to them. He is not an elitist, with trainers, speech writers and teleprompters.
    He made no gaffes in the debate. He told the truth.
    He needs work on foreign policy but he's a fast learner. I agree with him on Israel and his strong support of them.
    The economy is our number one priorty and it is a national security issue as our energy policy and our immigration policy is. He's good on those.

    As I see it, the number of viable Republican candidates is now down to just three: Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, and Jon Huntsman. Other potentially viable candidates (e.g. Chris Christie, Rick Perry) have not declared any intention to enter the race yet, although it's not too late. The rest of the field mostly consists of vanity candidates at this point.

    I think the nominee will probably be either Romney, Pawlenty, or Huntsman...with Romney still the most likely choice.
    Romney=RomneyCare Huntsman-Cap and trade/Obama those are pretty big hurdles.

    Smoking bans is a repub thing as well. Also, all those things are BIG GOV.

    Repubs have no chance in hell now though.

    fox news is already backing him.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    With Mitch Daniels out, the betting odds on each of the top Republican contenders have improved a bit. Here are the most likely Republican nominees now, with their probability of winning the nomination according to InTrade:

    Mitt Romney 28.0%
    Tim Pawlenty 25.0%
    Jon Huntsman 16.5%
    Sarah Palin 6.4%
    Herman Cain 6.2%
    Michele Bachmann 5.3%
    Chris Christie 3.0%
    Newt Gingrich 2.9%
    Rick Perry 2.7%
    Ron Paul 2.6%
    Paul Ryan 1.1%
    Rudy Giuliani 1.1%

    Just curious. Are you mentally capable of making a point without taking a shot?

    Only when people thought he wasn't going to run at all (i.e. before the 2006 midterms). After he started to make noise about a possible presidential bid in November 2006, he was never anything less than the 2nd most likely Democratic nominee on InTrade.
