It's a whirlwind right now. As an Independent, I think I'm liking the idea of Herman Cain leading them. Perry never had a chance to me.

I believe that now.  Someone accurately compared him to Fred Thompson, who led the polls once he announced but fizzled out quickly.

One poll about to come out has Cain neck and neck with Obama.  And keep in mind that Cain is relatively unknown at this point.  Great speaker, strong business experience.

Cain winning a Florida straw poll is meaningless, as it is based on a very small sample.

Perry has lost a lot of ground in the recent debates with his performance.

Romney is the most likely candidate at this point, and the one the Republicans will likely to do best with vs. Obama.

I believe any of them can and will beat Obama.  

However, per Rasmussen, the two that favor against Obama are Cain and Romney, with an unknown Cain only behind Obama by 5% points.  14% are undecided, and, with this economy, there's little chance they'll choose Obama.
