Herman Cain's support grows: Now Cain is tied with or ahead of Rick Perry in every poll RealClearPolitics covers, barring two, and his average is also ahead of Perry’s. Of note: The latest Gallup poll has Cain within two points of Mitt Romney. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are roughly tied, and Michele Bachmann’s pretty much disappeared. That was quick.

Polling roundup: Cain continues to surge

  • 3 states in which Herman Cain now leads everybody else source

» All aboard the Cain Train! Republicans in North Carolina, Nebraska, and West Virginia want Herman Cain as their nominee—he leads all of his opponents in a new PPP poll. A Washington Post/ABC poll released today showed Cain tied with Perry for second nationally, and two polls last week also showed evidence of Cain Fever sweeping the nation. This seems to be at the expense of Rick Perry, who’s collapsing just as fast as Cain is rising (in North Carolina alone, more than half of his supporters have abandoned him, and a Fox News poll last week showed him losing ten points in a month). Romney is still the (perpetually-endangered) frontrunner, but there’s a plausible argument to be made that Cain is now in the top-tier of candidates. Of course, the same thing was once said of both Donald Trump and Michele Bachmann, so take that as you will.

Bachmann was just asked whether or not she believes in giving states control over immigration enforcement and if so, how to square that with constitutional law. These are some solid questions from Fox News.

meanqueeraesthetic says: I think what Bachmann meant by "leaving it as space" was that she's not feeling ready to actually answer the question yet; it's something that she needs more time to consider. I don't think she was actually referring to the Space Program itself as something in which she wants to invest. Hopefully this makes sense? O:

» SFB says: Your interpretation would certainly make more sense; however, Bachmann used the words “the space industry” earlier in the interview, so it’s pretty clear she’s talking about NASA. What’s not clear, however, is why. —Seth @ SFB

When asked what she would invest in if she were president, GOP candidate Michele Bachmann replied: I’m just leaving it as space for right now…I don’t want to give a flip off-the-cuff answer.” [KGO]

For the last three years, the Republican Party has run on a platform based on cutting wasteful spending. Isn’t it odd, then, that a Republican candidate for president would cite the space program as the only viable avenue for new investment? Not that the space program is a waste per se, but it’s not exactly one of the GOP’s sacred cows. Color us puzzled. (Thanks KGO-TV for the video)

I think a good example is the space industry and there’s a lot more that we could look at (reporter asks: Like what besides space?) I’ll leave it at space now (reporter asks: Really? That’s the only place you can see?) I’m just leaving it as space for right now…I don’t want to give a flip off-the-cuff answer.

If she can produce a case in one week starting today verified by three medical experts that she and i pick of a woman who became ‘retarded’ (her words) due to HPV vaccine i will donate that to a charity of her choice. She must donate 10k to a charity I pick if she fails to do so.
University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Art Caplan • E-mailing reporters with an offer of a challenge for Michele Bachmann, in response to her claims that the HPV vaccine can cause mental health issues. Here’s what we think is going to happen here — Bachmann is going to ignore Caplan because, if she doesn’t, she’s going to be proven wrong. That’s pretty much her only option for not looking stupid here. source (viafollow)
