Herman Cain Wins New Poll, Is Ahead of Even Obama

Your Black World reports

Herman Cain has won another poll, putting his opponents on notice.  A straw poll in Nevada put Cain slightly ahead of Mitt Romney, further solidifying his status as the GOP front-runner.   Rick Perry is falling further to the wayside, while Cain has made himself into a valid political threat.

A Florida straw poll in September thrust Cain to the top initially, and he also had strong showings in South Carolina and Virginia.   In Nevada, Cain came out three percentage points ahead of Romney, and Newt Gingrich grabbed 20 percent of the vote.   The Perry campaign finished fifth.

Another poll serves as additional fuel for the Cain campaign.  A University of Iowa poll gave Cain 37 percent of the GOP vote, with just 27 percent going to Romney and another 12 percent for Ron Paul.   Cain has even been put ahead of President Obama.  A Rasmussen poll put Cain ahead of Obama by two percentage points.
