Republican Primary Florida Straw Poll: Cain Wins!

Dear Commons Community,

There was much happening in the last couple of days with the Republican Primary.  Most significant was the win by Herman Cain yesterday  in the Florida Straw Poll.   Cain, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, was the surprise winner.   The results were as follows:

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%

It is hard to judge how much these straw polls mean but without a doubt, Cain’s showing has to be considered a problem for the front-runners especially Rick Perry.   Even though she did not campaign in this poll, Michelle Bachmann has to face the reality that her candidacy is in serious trouble.
