Rasmussen: Georgia’s Herman Cain within 5 points of Obama

Rasmussen reports that Georgia’s own Herman Cain has drawn to within five points of President Obama in a head-to-head matchup.

That sounds too crazy to be true, and of course in a practical sense it is. According to Rasmussen, Obama draws 39 percent of the vote and Cain 34 percent, which makes it hard to take seriously as a true head-to-head poll. That 34 percent isn’t a measure of Cain’s support, it’s a measure of the number of Americans who will vote for anybody against Obama.

In fact, only 61 percent of REPUBLICAN voters told Rasmussen they would vote for Cain over Obama. (The Daily Caller reports that Cain gets 3 percent of the black vote in the poll, while Obama gets 76 percent, but that information is missing from the Rasmussen site.) Rasmussen also acknowledges that in all of its polls, Obama leads every announced Republican candidate.

As a more telling measure of Cain’s strength, he draws 9 percent nationwide among Republicans, according to a CNN poll. In Florida, where Cain won the straw poll, he’s at 7 percent.

The Hermanator does seem to be enjoying his time in the spotlight, and more power to him. He’s also doing wonders for his post-primary media career. But I don’t think he’ll be filling out a change-of-address form for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue anytime soon.

UPDATE: Fox just released results of its new poll, with good news for Cain. Romney leads with 23 percent, Perry’s at 19 percent and Cain is at 17 percent.

Other data from the Fox poll:

Obama leads Romney 45-42, within the margin of error. Among voters 35 and under, he leads 61-27 percent. Yes, young voters tend to not vote as often. But as time passes and American demography changes, that’s a serious problem for the GOP.

Perry’s support fell by 10 points, from 29 to 19 percent, from the previous Fox poll in late August. But almost none of that lost support gravitated to Romney. Cain and Gingrich were the biggest beneficiaries.

LOL!!! That is because, of course, although Obama is mulatto rather than a pure black man, he nonetheless is the only black of the two. That follows logically from the proposition that if you are appear black but are not a Democrat, you cannot be black (as follows):

All blacks are Democrats
Cain is NOT a Democrat.
Cain is NOT black

That is also why Clinton is regarded as the first black president. Though he does not appear black, he acted that way so was a kind of albino black.

Actually, I’m having fun. Blacks vote Democratic no matter who is on the ticket – it is not so much a racial thing as a cultural thing.

Who makes this crap up and disseminates it out on a daily basis? It’s not a racial thing, nor is it a cultural thing. It’s a complete lack of trust in anybody with an (R) behind their name. There are Blacks who are just as conservative as the most conservative Whites. Many are not going to vote for a party that has the appearance to not even give an ant’s turd about them.

On second thought, it might indeed be cultural in the sense that many White conservatives don’t have a clue about Black culture other than what they see/hear on tv and from each other. When you build an opinion of a group based on incorrect stereotypes, there’s no way on G*ds’ green earth that you can effectively communicate with them well enough for them to vote for you.

The Democratic base is upset with Bozo because, in their eyes, he blew it. He had a chance to cram his socialistic, Marxist directives down the throats of America and he didn’t succeed. We didn’t buy it. The electorate does not want to live in a Bozo America. But for a desperate narcissist, the rhetoric is getting stronger every day. “Why don’t you listen to me?” “I have your best interests at heart”. Even the sermon given before the CBC was an act of desperation and panic. Axelrod states that re-election in 2012 will be a “titanic struggle”. 30% of the Democratic base want another candidate. The Chicago Tribune, his own home town newspaper is calling for him to step down. Things just don’t look too good.

You just contradicted yourself. The ENTIRE race does not do it. There’s about 10-15% that will vote Republican on any given election. I’ve voted GOP in the past, both in primary AND general elections. What I will not do is go around touting the GOP as some kind of saviour for Black Americans because that is not the case. I don’t tout the Democratic Party as some kind of saviour for Black Americans either because they are not.

We basically have a 2-Party system. If you don’t trust the people in one party, you vote for the other party. If you don’t trust either one, you vote for the lesser of the two evils. When you stack the Republican platform versus the Democratic platform, the Left will almost always be the lesser of the two evils for Black Americans.

Voting as a cultural identity charateristic. That’s just funny as hell…. Wrong too, but funny as hell. I love to see the contortions done here to justify positions.

Who do you think you are? I know, and am friends with , former Black Panthers for Pete’s sake.

I don’t THINK I am anything, however I KNOW that I am a Black American who, despite what was thrown in my path, has survived and prospered in this country. What you see as arrogance is nothing but knowledge from actually living as a Black American, not just knowing some and being friends with them. Hell, I know people who were beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. I knew a Tuskeegee Airman. I can attest to quite a bit as I have more than 38 years of BEING Black, and my family has been Black in America for over 220 years.

Nope. Change the GOP platform AND mindset to at least be open to the thougts and concerns of ALL Americans and you will get support from all Americans. Most votes come down to the lesser of two evils, and the Democratic Party at least pays lip service to the Black community.

Wrong. Gore got 95% and Kerry got 92% of the black vote. Get your facts straight. But I guess it need to be 99.9% for it to be cultural, right.

Culture, as defined by Merriam-Webster:

b: the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group; also : the characteristic features of everyday existence (as diversions or a way of life} shared by people in a place or time
c : the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization
d : the set of values, conventions, or social practices associated with a particular field, activity, or societal characteristic

When you stack the Republican platform versus the Democratic platform, the Left will almost always be the lesser of the two evils for Black Americans.”

Your grandfather would not have shared those sentiments – especially if he was from the South. Do you really think the Democrats have “found Jesus”? How has Johnson’s (boy, he sure was pro-black – just look into his exchanges with MLK) “Great Society” really benefited blacks in urban areas over the past 4 decades? Why are blacks in these areas STILL in the same boat they were 40 years ago? I think because they have been given a hand out and not a hand up, to their detriment. You know what behavior indicates concern for their plight? Going into the inner cities and doing things to help. I have done that. Please link the list of public Democratic “servants” who have.

There’s just as many conservative Blacks as there are liberal ones. That’s the point that everybody misses. Black Americans are just as diverse as White Americans. The fact that many conservatives want to lump 90% as liberals simply because of a vote is a big insult.

Wrong. Gore got 95% and Kerry got 92% of the black vote. Get your facts straight. But I guess it need to be 99.9% for it to be cultural, right.

You’re looking at national elections. That one’s a no-sh*t type answer. Look into state and local, and you’ll see the differences. As long as you and others keep with your “knowledge” and assumptions, you’ll continue to push Blacks away. People want to focus on Blacks and voting, but nobody states that Blacks voted 100% for Whites in those elections that you bring up.

You know what behavior indicates concern for their plight? Going into the inner cities and doing things to help. I have done that. Please link the list of public Democratic “servants” who have.

I don’t belong to the Democratic party, so I have no idea of where such a list exists. I have seen different functions in the “hood” that are sponsored by groups that are Democratic Party supporters. I haven’t personally seen one sponsored by a GOP support group. Get the GOP involved in food drives, clothing drives, and other things in the “hood” if you want votes. Also, just because you go into the inner city to help doesn’t mean you’re an expert on all things inner city. Until you live that life, you can only go off of testimony, so don’t act like you’re some kind of ghetto superhero. You can save that kind of bragging by people who are impressed by that kind of stuff.

“And quit acting stupid as to why virtually NO minorities, even us American Jews, trust Republicans.”

What is laughable about this statement is it implies, by contrast, that Democrats are trustworthy. Hardly any politician is trustworthy. I suspect it has less to do with trust than other things. When one of your neighbors is a ex-convict convicted of armed robbery and you are so focused on this that you fail to observe you other neighbor did time for rape, and you talk incessantly how you can’t trust the one but lend your lawn tools to the other, you appear blind to the objective observer. I am not a party man. I am a conservative by principle and was happy to vote for Zell Miller and would have gladly voted for Obama had he been conservative.

Q:”Governor Christie, why will you not run for President in 2012?”
A:”Because I do not have enough experience.”
Q:”But Governor, look at Obama..”
A:”YEAH, look at him.”

Absolutely HILARIOUS!!!! No one could have said it better!!!

AmVet,

In the 1948 election of Truman, the Dixiecrats took only 4 states. After the election, the Dixiecrats no longer existed. Prior to 1948, and after the Truman election, the South, as we know it was solidly Democratic. The Democrats didn’t lose their “Solid South” until the 1964 Civil Rights Act came into play. Klansmen were definitely not all arch-conservatives. There were a lot of lynchings prior to 1948 and after that had nothing to do with “arch-conservatives”. They had a big D behind their name, AmVet. There were more blacks killed by Democrats than ever were by Republicans. That’s a fact that most Democrats and blacks overlook.

Well, this is what you call a real revolting development. About the only thing one of Those People and a Mexican is good for is to keep us rednecks from hitting rock bottom. Now Bookman/s dragging out a poll that shows we could be in for another one of Those People in the White House. It’s getting real close to time for a 2nd Amenment solution to our problems. We can’t hardly take more of this stuff. I mean, it’s bad enough we got a bunch of uppity women that want to be President. Now people are just shooting off numbers that say, “Black? I don’t care what color he is.” It’s just aiming to rub most of us the wrong way. Everybody knows they care. It’s just that they want to join in with the libruls and get accepted with this bunk.

Anyhow, we all know what happens in elections. Just ask this Congressman Ford up in Tennessee. Everybody said they was going to vote for him for senator. “We don’t care what color he is,” they told everybody that would listen. And he wound up getting skunked worse than the Braves against the Phillies.

So alot of us know what people really mean. It comes out of that polling booth every election. You can fool these pollsters, but you ain’t fooling me. Most of you would have a heart attack if you heard Herman Cain was elected President.
