Cain Tops New Poll

The heat is on—and we’re not just referring to his campaign chief smoking in his new video. A new CBS/New York Times poll shows that the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza is the frontrunner in the GOP election, garnering 25 percent of the vote. In second place and 4 percent behind Cain was Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich in third with 10 percent of the vote. Rick Perry fell to fifth place with a dismal 6 percent. The survey was held from October 19 to 24, and includes the Las Vegas GOP debate. It does not, however, include Cain’s much talked about “smoking” campaign video.
