President Herman Cain? He Wins The Florida Straw Poll

The national media is at it again. If you pay attention to the polls, read the main stream newspapers, and watch the main stream news, it’s a “foregone conclusion” that Mitt Romney will be the Republican Presidential nominee for the 2012 election.

This assumption would, without a doubt, go right along with the way the Republican National Committee (RNC) tends to choose the nominee. In their eyes, “it’s Romney’s turn”. He’s been running for president  almost 3 years- this time around.

However, the national media, nor the RNC seem to understand what Conservative Daily News readers understand: We The People have had enough “politics as usual”.

In this weeks CDN reader poll, the question was asked:

Who Were the Top 3 Performers in the 9/22 Fox/Google GOP Debate

CDN readers chose Herman Cain as the overall winner of the debate with an astounding 67% of the vote.

In today’s Florida Straw Poll, the winner was…. Herman Cain!

Florida Governor Rick Scott announced Herman Cain as the winner, saying:

“Tonight’s winner is Herman Cain. It shows you something, the road to the White House come through Florida, and it pays to spend time here.”

Winning 37 percent of the vote with more than 2,600 votes cast, Mr. Cain more than won the straw poll, it was a landslide! His closest competition was Texas Governor Rick Perry, winning 15% of the vote.

Mr. Cain showed his appreciation to Florida voters, saying:

“Thank you to the Republican voters for this incredible honor of being named the winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll in Florida today.  This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored. I will continue to share my message of ‘common-sense solutions’ across this country and look forward to spending more time in Florida, a critical state for both the nomination and the general election.”

Today’s straw poll most certainly proves that the next 15 months are going to have a lot of surprises in store for the American people- and more importantly, the political establishment!

    I’m glad that Herman Cain won this straw poll as this finally gives him the credibility he needed to get that jump he needed. So now are conservatives going to start paying more attention to him than Bachmann, or….who? I can’t thing of anyone who is running who is conservative enough for my liking to be worthy of my vote. And Bachmann didn’t campaign in Florida. So what’s next? I’m glad the truth about Perry is starting to break some of that manly fasaid off his face, because behind it was a Mexican alien in a suit. Perry doesn’t believe that a fence would do any good if there was no one there to watch it? And he doesn’t believe that it would make any difference anyway? And thinking it would proves we’re all hard hearted? No, Rick I’m not hard hearted, I’m patriotic for the sovereignty of my nation, what’s your problem?

    It doesn’t matter about Rick Perry anyway because I don’t believe he’s done no where near enough, and no where near enough on the border as he says he has, I don’t care what. He claims that he has more agents, “boots on the ground” than any other border state except Arizona or course. But see Perry isn’t even doing the enforcement of our immigration laws as Arizona. So if he’s not doing that then what is he talking about.

    Herman, on the other hand is talking about doing what Arizona is doing, along the entire border and seal it off, put the military down there like it should have been with the authority to get rid of the dope dealers. If Perry is the governor of Texas will he obey the President? President Cain? Who knows. I hope so. And you know I hear about Cain’s weak foreign policy positions, but I hope that means that he does understand you don’t need to be a diplomat to know to cut off these countries who hate us but always have their hands out, and the UN.
