WTF?! Herman Cain Leads Both Romney and Perry in Latest Poll Results

Mitt Romney must be scratching his head right about now.   He has been running for the presidential nomination of the Republican Party for over five years now and he can't seem to get any love.  

Today we learn that Romney isn't even the "front-runner" any longer.   At least according to the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that named Herman Cain the front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2012. According to the poll 27 percent of Republican voters surveyed made Cain their first choice, and Mitt Romney dropped down to second place with 23 percent.

Do you have any idea why Cain is rising and Romney is stagnant in these latest polls?

Keep in mind that a few scattered polls don't represent the views of the public at large. We still have a long way to go until the big dance.

re: Cain's showing in the polls. I hear ya ... but, I wonder if the Hillary Clinton folks weren't saying the same thing this time 4 years ago when a relatively unknown Barack Obama was rising to the top in the Iowa polling?
