BREAKING: Herman Cain leads new Zogby poll!

 The "Hurri-CAIN" continues...
Rick Perry has tumbled by more than 20 percentage points over the past month among Republican presidential primary voters and is now second to Herman Cain, who leads the field with 28%. 
Mitt Romney received little benefit from Perrys fall, garnering 17% of the vote for third place...
These results are from an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll conducted Sept. 23-26...
Note the dates of the Zogby poll. It just finished today, so while this is clearly a direct reaction to Cain's earth-shattering Florida straw poll win, many of the voters were sampled before Cain's incredibly powerful speech to the Presidency 5 delegates and the past 48 hours' media circus.

Thanks to The Other McCain for the linkback...and I'm going to take a page out of my Fedora'ed friend's playbook and invite you to hit my tip jar in celebration of this news. The more donations you send me, the more coffee I can buy and conservative events I can attend...and apparently I'm good luck. ;)

UPDATE: Yes, I am aware that Zogby is an online poll. Yes, I've read the criticisms of their polling method. But I still think this is news because it is part of a larger trend. Let's say the Zogby panel is incredibly slanted and biased. Well, that slanted and biased panel just shifted significantly from Perry to Cain.


  1. Zogby Internet polls are the most UNRELIABLE polls on the web. I like Cain, but he is not going to win.

  2. This is great news. Take THAT, mainstream media!

    Michael - were the Zogby polls accurate when they had Cain behind? are they still using the same methods they were before? Worst case scenario, this poll definitely means that Cain is surging.
