My how time flies. Just 3 years ago, black Americans couldn't get enough of president-elect Barack Obama. And now Americans can't get enough of black presidential candidate Herman Cain.

Today, new polls show the former pizza maker surging ahead of President Obama and his closest GOP rival Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

Whether Herman Cain’s surge in the polls is temporary or has staying power, he’s enjoying a big enough bounce to take a very slight lead over President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. At the moment, the Georgia businessman is the only Republican with a lead of any kind over Obama, although former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has held a similar advantage several times and is currently trailing the president by just two points.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows Cain attracting 43% support, while Obama earns 41%.

According to Rasmussen Reports, Cain is tied with Romney for the lead in the race for the GOP presidential nomination. Nobody else is even close at the moment.

Isn't America a great country? I wish I was American so I could vote.

Please take a moment to participate in our poll below.

    This is the most ... man I have ever... I just. SMH. Well I never.

    That quip about ppl needing "to go get rich.." and Black are un-saveable. :no:

    This man is a CLOWN to the highest degree. Racism is not a factor in economic equality....not according to Mr. Cain. Its education and "geography", he says.

    Racism works perfectly when you put a Black face on it, huh? I used to think Blacks couldnt be racist (I believ racism is about power) but Herman Cain may be the 1st at something after all...cause he sure isnt the 1st stunt the Repubs have used. That title belongs to Palin.

    At the end of the day I think that money is the most important factor regardless of the party. It doesnt matter what these politicans promise during their campaign, once they get elected they are going to look out for the people that gave the most to the campaign and the people that they made all sort of promises to. It's depressing just thinking about it.

  • http://www.philly.com/ Jay Bee

    Cain is the hot topic now, but come another month it may be rick santorum, all it takes is a catchy phrase or an outgoing moment and your the next hot thing... last month it was Perry, There plenty of time left in this race the the repubs im sure Newt Gingrich gonna get his turn too before its all said and down
    But Trust Obama would be i office 2012 and Chirs Chrsitie will be there 2016 if he has his health.. Obama has taken the oath to complete the job and Christie will continue on.... Ya vote dont matter #OWS

    @ screwball69: At least you have your hopes and dreams :)

  • JMO

    @Sandra, I'm just curious as to why you're against President Obama??

    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I may be as I don't follow politics, but didn't he/isn't he:

    - extend unemployment for those who are still unable to find a job
    - issue stimulus checks which a number of people spent on bull anyway
    - approve the education credit so those of us back in school received more money after we filed taxes
    - bailout banks so they can in turn help those dumb azzes who thought they could afford a million dollar house with a $30k salary
    - vouching for healthcare reform & social security benefits so our grandparents who worked hard for nothing can enjoy a decent retirement
    - asking for fair tax rates because it isnt right that a plumber is paying more taxes than a millionaire

    I'm confused. Republicans are against all of that and they want to tell middle class americans to go to hell keep the same tax rates but THATS who you want in office? :shrug:

  • Yardgirl

    The Republicans tried to bamboozle us with Sarah Palin to get the disgruntled female vote from the Hilary lovers and the middle America bigots. Too bad she was an idiot. FAIL!! Now they are trotting out this dude to get the black vote? Like any ole black face will do because we are interchangeable? How insulting!! Major fail!!

    I don't know what was expected of President Obama, but after they started going after him 90 days into his presidency, I knew it was going to be on and popping for his entire presidency. I will be lobbying to get erry damn body I know out to the polls come election day.

    I definitely think President Obama has flaws and made some mistakes but I'd rather hear someone criticize his platform versus the color of his skin. Better yet, evaluate the pros and cons of each political party and if you still agree with the Republican party afterwards, so be it ...

    Im mad because no bankers or wall streeters are in jail..I do blame the President for that. But he gets my vote for 4 more years because the republicans just want to "break him" no matter who else gets damaged. They think they can clean the mess up later. That's why Im trying to buy property out of the country because the republicans are willing to bring back the 1800s if they don't get their way. And these black people that are going along with them, under the guise of "thinking for themselves" are not gonna like what they'll turn this nation into.

    Foreclosures are up but I know a ton of people who were able to refinance their homes and salvage what they had. I agree with you in that bankers and those on Wall Street should have prison terms. He also gets my vote for another 4 years. Even though I don't think he did everything he said he would (as all politicians) I think, for the most part, he played it cool for the first term just so he can make sure he's elected for a 2nd term. Now if that happens, I think we will see a difference because hell he can't be elected for a 3rd term :lol:

    Being a research scientist, I can tell you that the difference between 435 and 41% is not statistically significant. If you look at the methodology of this survey it clearly tells you there margin of error of +/- 3 points. Also, this is a survey of 1,000 people with LANDLINE phones. So who are those people??? Old retired folks, people without jobs, etc. Also, they don't include folks with cellular phones, thus a significant proportion of mainstream society is automatically excluded (as cellular devices out number landlines). And that fact alone makes me do a Kanye :shrug: when these polling surveys can include a broader sample then I'll believe it.

    Couldnt have said it better FeFe. I would support Sarah McPalin before I vote for this fool. At least I know the Obama's are two great minds working together (Michelle is really running ish).

    Now I don't agree with how Obama is trying to compromise with the Repubs. but at least he is aware of the domino effect. No matter how many #'s or slogans they come up with the gap is not going to filled until millionaires & billionaires pay their fair share, Wall Street stops playing "Big Bank Takes Little Bank," and corporations are properly taxed.

    They are hoping to snatch the black vote because they know we are not voting Republican unless its a black candidate (most of us). Knowing this man doesnt have a chance in hell of running this country.

    As for the foreclosures I do blame the banks to a certain point, but I also blame the homeowners to. During 2001-2005 people were signing up for very bad loans, not reading the small print and etc. I think that some people were just so happy to be able to purchase a home, that they didnt think at how easy it was or how they could afford it when the interest rates increased.

    Its no difference from being in the HOOD … Blacks quick to down the “white” man but say anything about a black person you wanna justify it

    I don't think I said you were a republican. Judging from your comment, I assumed that you didn't have any affiliation. I'm not at all sensitive however if you would relax on the exclamation points and read my other comments, you would see that I said that I disagree with some of the things Obama has done. I don't vouch for anyone solely based on color ...

    I told my dad by MISTAKE once that I did not vote. It was a presidential election but I don't remember which one. Anywho it was raining. No I take that back...it was MONSOONING. Like Forrest Gump said...rain was coming in sideways. It was cold. And so I just skipped going to the polls. He always calls and asks did we vote...My dad cried :wail: I told him I did not vote and he cried :no: He was a freedom marcher in 1960's Alabama so for him to have a kid that did not vote was like...the most unfathomable thing EVER. So I vote to make a difference and I also vote to say thanks to those who fought for my right to do so.

    @point I figured this much. Finding a job, especially in todays economy, isn't that easy so it can easily take months to get a job. The job I'm working at didn't give me an offer until 3 months after I applied and interviewed. It's not as easy as it sounds especially depending on the field you're in.

    are people opposed to relocating? I'm not insensitive to the state of unemployment, trust me I'm not. I look at career ops in other states quite often. It's amazing how many pages of ops come up in other states while in metro ATL, in my field, I may get a page or 2. But I've worn so many different hats, exposed to different apps that many companies use.

    You gotta turn that into something. And I always do. When I hear interviews or read articles of execs saying they can't fill positions because people aren't qualified, I have to shrug my shoulders.

    People are not realizing that this is a whole new economy.. These corporations are sitting on their money and not hiring.. And yes there is discrimination and not just for race either...they are discriminating for age, weight, and for being unemployed in the first place. Lots of places will not hire anyone who is currently unemployed. Really it's all a ruse they are sitting this out to get President Obama out. They are sitting on trillions of dollars. The people lucky enough not to have lost their jobs so far in this depression (yes depression no recession) don't realize the game has changed. They still think it's the days when just about anyone could waltz into mickey d's or wal mart and get a job just to hold them over. Well Mickey d's had over 1 million applications for 50,000 openings in April and Wal Mart can't hire everybody and they really not interested in you and your masters degree cause they know you ain't gonna stay. It's very easy to be highly educated and experience and be unemployed for more that 2 years.

But first he needs to come up w/the right plan which he doesn't have or hasn't had in the last 3 yrs I'm tired of hearing "yes we CAN"!

    yeah, relo's do cost, and a perm gig has to be waiting. that's not the case for a lot. It's just me, so a lot of times I remain quiet because my situation is not like the average person. I do have a house in atl, but that's it (no fam, kids, etc). so it's a lot easier for me to up and move for the right opp.

    Having all those expensive degrees and unemployed is nothing I wish on anybody. This is a different reality now. More and more companies will go to temps/contract employees. They save so much money on benefits. The pool is so vast, they can do it.

    Mamacita, I interviewed for a gig in August, didn't hear anything for a couple weeks. The Ops Mgr finally got back to me and said 'we're still interviewing candidates.' blank stare.

    what's your bare minimum job?

    -------------------------------------------------
    No hard feelings. I love you too :hug:

    It is indeed a privilege but research has found that it can also be looked on as a responsibility...

    Indeed a study conducted in 2006 by Peter D. Hart Research Associates found far most participants in a series of focus groups saw voting as a responsibility or a privilege more than as a right. Many categorized voting primarily as a privilege because previous generations had fought for it and other countries don't enjoy the same freedom. The plurality of participants saw it primarily as a responsibility because it highlights the importance of choosing the government. Many of these participants chose not to classify it primarily as a "right" because the word "right" suggested to them a sense of entitlement.

    age is worse than race right now I think. As black people some of this IS our fault. But not for the stereotypical reasons YT people use like education or attitude. I think it's because we gave up our own businesses after civil rights in order to go into corporate America and the Government in order to get a steady check. Our parents said go to school and get a good job. Entrepreneurship was not a priority. Im still working in Corporate America right now but i've started a small business on the side that I hope to grow to the point where I can hire somebody. When white guys get out of prison they get a job because they know somebody with a small business that will throw them a bone. If somebody loses their office job they can "consult" at their brother in laws firm and put that on their resume. Black people don't always have those options because we don't have an ownership mindset. That's gotta change. We gonna f around and let them legalize and corporatize drugs and even june bug on the block will be out of business.

    Well I was told I made too much unemployment (with my child support payment) for food stamps! Whet kinda shyt is THAT? How in de fugg you make too much UNEMPLOYMENT? I was able to draw right away b/c I was enrolled in school. So I did not have to wait until my severance package ran out.

    My sister is still getting her unemployment. She walked out of her old job with almost 9 months worth of severance. So she had to wait until all of those funds ran out to even start getting unemployment. She too did not qualify for food stamps. We still gotta buy ours in the skreet :lol: Lucky for her my brother in law is pretty well off so she can really afford to sat her azz at the house forever if she wants to.

    Good point Dats but blacks didnt walk away from their business' they were burned down and the owners were tortured because they were living better than yt at the time. It really does make u wonder where some of those business would be today.

    Ref: The Black Wall Street
    "The date was June 1, 1921, when "Black Wall Street," the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-Black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious whites. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving 36-Black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering--a model community destroyed, and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused."

    I can't speak for everyone, but I don't HATE the politics posts at all. I think most of us come here to relax, or shoot the chit, or just gossip. It makes us feel better, and sometimes the post about politics bring back all the b.s. we trying to get away from...the economy, foreclosures, unemployment, etc.

    ---------------------------------

    You right..that happened a lot. I wasn't ignoring that. But I've just studied the history of the community I grew up in. it goes back to the 1880s. There were black owned butcher shops, movie theaters, clubs, bars, restaurants, laundries, grocery stores , car washes, lawyers and doctors and dentists offices, funeral homes and even a pharmacy. Right up until the late 60s and early 70s by the mid 80s all of them were gone. Of course not all of these businesses would have survived anyway but more than a few of them went out of business because the old proprietor died and the kids didn't want to be bothered because they went to school got a degree and wanted a steady paycheck from a big company or the government. It's a shame the only thing in my old hood now is the korean store and the gas station that some middle easterns own. Well corporate America is sitting on trillions and not hiring. And the Government is broke and we're paying the price as a community because we were depending on them too much for our livelihoods. I was too but I've learned my lesson. Unemployment will be even worse if the Post Office lays off 125,000 like they say they need too. That was black folk ticket into the middle class and now they pulling it.

  • omina-homina

    It doesn't matter what mask they put on the politics, government, of this country - a mulatto one or a black one. It doesn't matter whether the black ancestry is native or foreign rooted, it's still all some bullshit. The underlying political, commercial and economic strongholds will still be there. The elite families will retain the disposition of power in this country, and in the world.

    And if people think Barack Obama doesn't give a shit about black people, Herman Cain REALLY doesn't give a shit about black people, specifically poor and working-class black people.

    People want to call Barack Obama a house negro...if we're going to use plantation slave analogy Herman Cain is the house negro who told on his own and got them lynched. Born in the field, he is the 5th generation posterity of a slave African and one of the first mayors of the town. His ancestors were encouraged to interbreed with non-mulatto and field slaves. As a youngster, the master recognized his ancestry, adorable looks, and his high I.Q. thus took him away from his mother, a field slave, into his home and educated him. He had to take the disposition as the tattle-tale negro because no one in the field had his back, as he'd made it clear that he was better than them. He could only trust himself and did whatever he had to in order to survive.

    Barack Obama is the house negro who didn't have to work as hard to justify his existence to his master/father because he was half white. He was a little clueless about what it was like for a field negro, but he tried to understand. He even was involved with a field negro and secretly fathered a child by her. He also had a heart and would recognize the injustices committed against the other slaves. By disposition, being of some privilege, he sometimes would take, and get away with, an authoritative approach in addressing his fellow slaves. However, he would sometimes side with the field negros, helping them out of some sticky situations - he spared a few from being lynched and whipped. He was never known to 'deliberately' conspire to see any of them harmed or killed.
