    Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll; Perry Distant Second

    Atlanta businessman Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll Saturday, defeating second-place Rick Perry after the Texas governor spoke to a group of activists with a breakfast speech.
    Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, came in first with 37.1 percent of the 2,657 votes cast by GOP delegates at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Perry came in a distant second at 15.4 percent.
    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney followed with 14 percent while former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum drew 11 percent. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul finished with 10.5 percent, former Speaker Newt Gingrich finished with 8.5 percent, while former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman finished with 2 percent. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, who won the Iowa straw poll in August, finished with just 1 percent of the vote, Fox News reported.

    I was laughing when I saw this news this morning at the airport? I give him credit though he has done way better than other candidates like Romney and Gingrich who has yet to win anything.

    Lol indeed. though I think Cain can help spread the votes a bit and knock one the big shots out early, either Romney and or crazy Perry. Romney have the boring factor on his side when no matter how much people try to hype him up, the enthusiasm level dies faster than some can say tea-party. Maybe Sarah Palin can stay of out scandal long enough to run and help these guys out.

    Not when President Obama have almost 90% of Black votes, almost half the Hispanics, despite of popular beliefs out there, he still has very large portion of his white base. He'd win easily.
