In a Florida straw poll on Saturday, Herman Cain swept the vote!
Here are the results:
Herman Cain: 37.11%
Rick Perry: 15.43%
Mitt Romney: 14.00%
Rick Santorum: 10.88%
Ron Paul: 10.39%
Newt Gingrich: 8.43%
Jon Huntsman: 2.26%
Michele Bachmann: 1.51%
Wow! He more than doubled the candidate in second place, Rick Perry. Does this mean he has any more chance in winning the primary? No, of course not! Cain has essentially no chance.
I won’t really talk much about Cain because it seems pointless, but I will not this. He wants to eliminate the EPA. Also, over the summer, he mentioned that he would nominate the CEO of Shell Oil to head the EPA and set their regulations. Yes, this seems real smart…. No further explanation of this lunacy is needed. Oh! But wait! There’s more. His stupid, idiotic, 999 plan would cost over $2 trillion dollars. Anyways, enough about Cain. I can’t bare to write anymore on him.
It seems like Romney is most likely going to win the primary and here is why. Bachmann has dropped considerably and is far too conservative. Her vaccine lunacy has also hurt her and has made her look like a moron. Now, for Perry, he has already started to fade after being the “front-runner.” He also is starting to correctly being viewed as an idiot. The Republicans hate his support for the Dream Act in Texas as well as his “mandate” for the HPV vaccine and his claim that he met with a 31-year-old woman who lobbied him when in fact he met with her after the mandate was in place. This was a blatant lie.
Furthermore, his debate performances have been heavily criticized. People on the right were upset that he told them to “pray that Obama’s eyes will open.” Yes, they hate this because they want Obama to fail. Also, Perry mentioned that people “don’t have a heart” with regards to immigration. He also said, “I don’t know what part of opt-out most parents don’t get.” Obviously this will not sit well with the Right, he basically called them stupid. Yes, there are many more issues that the Right is starting to have with Perry and to see some of them click here. I feel that I have listed enough to make my point.
Now, with Perry fading and Bachmann pretty much out of the picture, what does that leave us with? Mittens. (That’s my sexy nickname for Romney.) Anyways, all the candidates seem to be focusing on attacking Perry, leaving Mitt Romney in the clear. Moreover, Romney is also the wealthiest candidate, worth up to $250 million, and will easily be able to fund his campaign until the end. He also has more of a mainstream appeal, though he is also terribly conservative. Remember, corporations are people too?
It seems like a lot of these candidates are up there to make Romney look like a reasonable candidate. (I obviously don’t believe actually this.)
One final note: I still don’t see why Rick Perry keeps saying that social security should be returned to the states. The states never had it. Why doesn’t anyone in the media point this out?
