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!
