A Fox News poll shows former Godfather Pizza CEO surging in their presidential candidate poll. The RCP poll shows Cain over Romney 25.9% to 24.9. Cain has received a mountain of criticism for spending less time in Iowa than “experts” think he should, but he leads there in the polls as well. With only 69 days to the Iowa caucuses, Stacy McCain, writing at The American Spectator, looks at the Republican candidates. Are they “a flawed field?” And what can they get done in the short time between now and the January primaries? In the meantime, Jennifer Rubin reports that Texas Governor Rick Perry’s campaign has hinted he may drop out of Republican presidential debates. A campaign spokesman says Perry must use his “time wisely.” Right.
Cain continues to build momentum in the polls. In a Fox News poll taken at the end of August, Cain garnered 6 percent and rose up to 17 percent in a Fox News poll taken in September. While Cain surges and Romney stays in place, Perry continues to sink. He took 29 percent in the August poll and 19 percent in the September one.
Remember James Carville? He’s trashing Herman Cain. The Other McCain has that story.
