Another Straw on the Back of the Negative Perry Narrative
Via USAT: Cain upsets Perry at Florida straw poll
The final tally: Cain carried 37% of the vote, Perry 15% and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney 14%. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum was at 11%, Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 10% and former House speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%. Trailing far behind were former Utah governor Jon Huntsman and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, at 2%.
Understand that the results of a straw poll are almost meaningless (especially in terms of understanding what the voters of a given state actually want).
Having said that, this will certainly help feed the current meme that Perry is in trouble in terms of his position as frontrunner.
And to the Cain supporters in the audience: no, this does not mean that Cain is a serious, viable candidate for the nomination.
