New presidential polls show that Americans are backing Herman Cain, even over Barack Obama. Latest poll numbers show Herman Cain is leading presidential prospects with a staggering 43%, while Obama is coming in as second most likely to be elected with only 41% voter approval.
Cain is the only Republican to date that has been shown as able to beat Obama in the 2012 election. The Georgia businessman is only rivaled by billionaire Mormon and Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
The latest Rasmussen Report used the most powerful barometer of polling for presidential elections, Likely U.S. Voters, to obtain the election prospects for each candidate as election day approaches.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows Cain attracting 43% support, while Obama earns 41%. Given such a matchup, eight percent (8%) prefer some other candidate, and another eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Many people have expressed decreased favor with Texas Governor Rick Perry, who last week joked about this ‘Niggerhead Ranch’ and made several other major gaffs seen as largely distasteful and disrespectful.
The survey of Likely Voters has a +/- 3 percentage points sampling error with a 95% level of confidence. Following are top-contending matchups versus Obama over the past two months. Cain is enjoying the first lead by GOP candidates.
