He’s tied with Mitt Romney for first in one poll and ahead of Rick Perry in another. Months ago, Herman Cain’s presidential campaign seemed like something of an underdog, with many people unaware of the former pizza chain executive. Now, with multiple straw-poll wins under his belt, the non-politician is within shouting distance of the lead. RealClearPolitics has him in third place, but if you take out the two oldest polls listed, he rises to second, ahead of Rick Perry, thanks in part to consistent poll numbers and Perry’s own faltering of late. Cain’s worth watching, suddenly. Wow. (photo via Gage Skidmore) source

Huntsman staffer says she is ‘sick and sad’ for the Republican Party after watching presidential debates
In a post on her Facebook page, Sarah Reidy, who joined Huntsman’s campaign in August but was not speaking on its behalf in this instance, said the behavior of audience members made her “sick and sad” for the Republican party.
“For years I have tried to prove that the GOP isn’t the Party of elitist, stereotypical people that lack compassion,” Reidy wrote on her Facebook account Tuesday. “When did creativity and growth become secondary to hate? Hearing the debate crowds go crazy over things like executions and the uninsured dying makes me sick and sad for my Party that I devote my time and efforts.”
In an interview with The Ticket, Reidy said that she has heard similar complaints within Republican circles.
So Mitt Romney wants us to “believe in America”… an America that comprises blue states?
Sure, why not.
