Black conservative and right-wing Tea Party favorite Herman Cain is preferred by more Georgia Republican voters than any other GOP presidential candidate, according to a new InsiderAdvantage/WSB-TV poll.
Cain holds a substantial lead with 26 percent, double the second place Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN). Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is third with 13 percent, reports WSB.
Following Cain and Bachman in the poll is former Speaker Of the House Newt Gingrich, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The poll of 407 people has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent. "Newt Gingrich has not had a big presence in Georgia since the 1990s, so it's understandable he's not going to be leading the pack," [Matt Towery, CEO of InsiderAdvantage] said.
Cain's off-color jokes about the "Democratic plantation" will probably attract a few more GOP voters. But do you see a Black Republican winning the Georgia primary? Haha.
