Cain's Trouble With Women Threaten's GOP Bid.....
« on: November 15, 2011, 06:50:19 AM »

WASHINGTON (AP) In a matter of a week, Herman Cain referred to the House Democratic leader as "Princess Nancy" Pelosi, said presidential rival Michele Bachmann would be "tutti-frutti" ice cream, and shrugged off a joke about Anita Hill.

The Republican presidential candidate also has denied allegations that he sexually harassed several women and, through his lawyer, threatened to investigate anyone else who makes such a claim.

Cain's overall standing has slipped in surveys just weeks before the Iowa presidential caucuses that kick off the state-by-state voting for the Republican Party's nomination; state and national polls show former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leading the pack, with Cain no longer challenging him for the top spot.

Two polls released in recent days show that female voters specifically have turned away from him since the sexual harassment allegations.

A CBS News poll conducted Nov. 6-10 showed his support among Republican women having dropped since late October, from 28 percent then to 15 percent now. And a CNN/ORC International poll conducted Nov. 11-13 showed that majorities of all women said they tend to believe Cain's accusers and would like to see the candidate end his campaign; majorities of men take the opposite position.

The polls are national in scope, meaning they're hardly predictive of how Cain is faring in Iowa the first state to weigh in on the GOP nomination fight on Jan. 3.

Women have made up a majority of voters in every presidential year since 1980, and while Democrats tend to win the group, successful Republicans have had to win or come close to splitting the vote among women in order to prevail.

In the 2008 presidential election, female eligible voters participated at a higher rate than males 66 percent to 62 percent, according to the Pew Research Center. Nearly 10 million more women cast ballots than men. And Obama won 56 percent of the female vote, the biggest margin among women a Democratic presidential candidate has had since exit polling began in 1972.....snip~

Cain is done. He has lost the women vote. Not counting the Sexual Allegations but his offhanded remarks about women has driven the polls to show a a drop of 11% in the pols. Currently Cain is polling now with Gov Perry for 3rd. Falling Below Romney, Gingrich and Ron Paul.

Even with Bachmann he took a shot.....knowing that if he said anything it would get him into with her. He took the bait anyways. Gave into the Media and what they wanted. Should have chose to be a Leader and moved that question to an advantage not a disadvantage.

Not surprising he would pull his wife out now. It was expected as the article states. But it will not stop Republican women from dropping from his way. If none think this isnt going to devastate his campaign. They have another thing coming. The Stats show the reason why when compared to Obama.
