In the face all of the recent sexual allegations, Herman Cain has just announced in Atlanta that he will suspend his campaign for the president of the United States. In spite of this decision to suspend his campaign, he will continue to push his agenda.
Herman tried to bolster support in his speech by commenting;
“The voice of the people is more powerful than the voice of the media…”
“If you look at the top 3 candidates, I am in the final 4…”
“As false accusations about me continue, they have sidetracked my mission for the American people…”
While campaign aides have given the impression of a campaign in full swing, scheduling a slew of rallies in key battleground states in the run-up to his announcement, the candidate’s numbers have taken a dive.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has soared in the polls, while Cain has fallen back into the territory now occupied by other former frontrunners who lost their luster among primary voters.
In a recent Huffington Post article;
“Polls suggest his popularity has taken a deep hit.
A Des Moines Register poll released Friday showed Cain’s support plummeting, with backing from 8 percent of Republican caucusgoers in Iowa, down from 23 percent a month ago.
Fundraising has also fallen off. He issued an email appeal to supporters on Friday asking for donations, in an attempt to gauge whether his financial support has dried up.
“I need to know that you are behind me 100 percent,” Cain told backers. “In today’s political environment, the only way we can gauge true support is by the willingness of our supporters to invest in this effort.”
