In Sarasota, Cain acknowledges slide from top



Sarasota Herald-Tribune's Jeremy Wallace reports:

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain acknowledged his month-long slide in the polls during a stop here on Sunday night, but disputed the idea that he is falling out of contention.

“Well, I’ve faded from first to third, and that’s not exactly fading all the way down to the bottom,” Cain told reporters just before speaking to about 350 people at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium.

Cain said most polls still show he is among the top three candidates and that most of his support is sticking with him through the “disinformation and misinformation” that he says is being spread about him.

“What that says is that people who get on the Cain Train, they don’t get off,” said Cain, a former pizza chain CEO who is the only one of the top eight presidential contenders never to hold elected office. (full story here)
