Right now, the race is for 2nd place. Until we’re down to two, I don’t think that we’ll have a clear idea of who’s gonna win this thing. Some time ago, I predicted that Perry would fade as well as Cain. While I think that I’ve been proven right, Cain has continued to surprise me. Except for this most recent scandal, he’s been rising in the polls and rising pretty quick. However, the scandal did hit and he’s suffered.
My biggest prediction was that Gingrich would be the contender to take on Romney. I think Gingrich is the smartest guy on the stage, has a history of getting things done and just speaks with a confidence that will set people at ease. He’s clear, he’s concise and he just talks common sense.
I think that my prediction is playing out:
Newt Gingrich has jumped to second place and Herman Cain has dropped to third among Republican voters’ preferences for which candidate should win the GOP presidential nomination, according to a new poll.
According to the McClatchy-Marist Poll, Mitt Romney leads the Republican pack with 23 percent. Gingrich is next with 19 percent, followed by Cain with 17 percent.
It’s time for the pretenders to bow out. I suppose they’ll work towards the first round of primaries, and that might be fair, but the sooner we can weed out the lower tier candidates, the better off we’ll be.
