With it now being Thursday August 4th, I figured that it’s time to finally recap Herman Cain’s results on various platforms from this past weekend (July 29th-31st). Mr. Cain and his army of grassroots volunteers put in a lot of time this past weekend and it seems like it has been paying off.
For starters, Mr. Cain was able to capture second place in the Smart Girl Summit’s straw poll, finishing behind the only female in the race, Michele Bachmann (note: only women were allowed to vote in the straw poll) in St. Louis, MO. From there, Cain headed out to Denver, CO for the Western Conservative Summit, where he captured the straw poll victory with a whopping 48% of the vote (note: he was only 1 of 3 candidates to speak at the conference and still came out with this massive victory)!
Then there was the new Zogby poll released last weekend (well, July 26th, but it fits well with the theme) showing Mr. Cain gaining support from their previous poll and now ahead of establishment favorite Mitt Romney. However, Mr. Cain wasn’t finished there. On Sunday (July 31st), Mr. Cain picked up the endorsement of the Pottawattamie County, Iowa GOP chair, Jeff Jorgensen. Jorgensen highlighted Mr. Cain’s common sense solutions and business experience in his endorsement.
This past week has provided the wily businessman with plenty of momentum, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Not only are we fast approaching the August 11th Fox News Debate in Iowa, but we’re also just 8 days away from the all important Ames straw poll in Ames, Iowa. For those who aren’t familiar with the Ames straw poll, see wikipedia’s significance section of the straw poll page. Hopefully all these positive results are turning heads and causing more people to hop aboard the “Cain Train” (the term us Cain supporters use as a reference to his growing base of supporters).
