Herman Cain Leads Opinion Polls Despite Sexual Harassment Allegations
Herman Cain’s presidential campaign isn’t over yet. The GOP candidate has lost support in recent weeks due to several sexual harassment allegations against him, but the Cain train is still rolling strong. Herman Cain was at the top of a recent CBS opinion poll.
The new poll shows that Herman Cain is still the favorite candidate ahead of Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. Cain and Romney both saw a drop in support since late October while Newt’s support has grown. 18% of Republican primary voters say that they would vote for Cain. 17% are undecided, 15% say they will vote for Romney, another 15% said they would vote for Gingrich, and 14% said they wouldn’t vote for any of the current GOP candidates.
CBS reports that the sexual harassment accusations against Cain aren’t having much of an impact. 61 percent of Republican primary voters said that the accusations wouldn’t affect their vote. 30 percent said it would make them less likely to vote for him. That number only grows to 38 percent among women.
Herman Cain has received criticism for his 9-9-9 tax plan, which he allegedly stole from a video game, his proposal to build a giant electric fence to keep our borders safe, and recently, five women have come out to accuse Cain of sexual harassment. Still, according to the poll, Cain is the most viable candidate.
Is there no stopping the Cain train?
