In looking at these numbers, it would appear he is not. At least for the moment. Cain has not only been known for his 9-9-9 tax plan, but also for accusing the democratic black community along with 81% of America of being brainwashed. How this method is working in his favor is beyond me. Whether he admits so or not, recent headlines covering Cain would support the argument that Herman Cain is placing a wedge between himself and the black community. On Tuesday, Cain accused "liberal" democrats of being "racist" for questioning his ambitions as a black conservative republican. While Cain uses powerful words such as racism, and brainwashed, he has managed to creep his way up the polls in the last two weeks. See the following interview with Herman Cain where these charges of racism and brainwashing can be seen.
The video about correlates with a recent article which claimed that Herman Cain sounds like a white Republican when he is talking about Black voter. That he is literally speaking their language when he says African Americans are too "brainwashed" into staying on the "Democratic plantation." And furthermore goes as far to say that Black voters are "racist" for not supporting him.
I have to hand it to the guy, as outrageous as some of his claims may sound, I believe he is saying the things that a large amount of people are thinking but choose not to say. For that reason amongst others, Cain has found success in the polls over the past few weeks. However, the people should approve with caution, for if Cain is so troubled in telling the media who his advisors are for a proposed movement, perhaps the public may be in for further secrecy should he become president.
