    Herman Cain: Polls show blacks voting for Obama because Romney supporters were working
    By Alicia M. Cohn - 08/30/12 10:12 AM ET

    Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said he expects more blacks to vote for Mitt Romney than polls indicate because many "working" blacks likely were not polled.

    "They were working, so they didn't answer the phone when they took the poll," Cain said Wednesday night on "The Daily Show." "Believe it or not, some black people have jobs, and careers, and they run businesses. They didn't take that into account."

    Comedy Central host Jon Stewart had noted that the GOP presidential nominee has essentially "zero" support among blacks, according to polls. He pointed out that Cain, as a Romney supporter, basically represents the "margin of error."

    "I know a lot of other American black conservatives that are gonna vote for Mitt Romney," Cain said. "The polls are inaccurate, in my opinion, based upon anecdotal evidence, based upon people that I know."

    Unemployment among blacks is double that of the rest of the country, but Cain denied that he meant blacks represented by current polls are all unemployed.

    Cain, who dropped his own bid for the GOP nomination last December, has proved himself a good sport through regular appearances on "The Daily Show" as well as fellow Comedy Central news spoof show "The Colbert Report."

    He defended Romney's "different style" as the reason some people see him as aloof.

    "It's a difference in style," Cain said. "[Romney] has a personality, but some people tend to voluntarily or involuntarily suppress it. I don't suppress my personality at all."

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    If only the MSM didn't savage Cain so much. He was my first choice in the beginning. I hope if Romney wins he somehow utilizes Cain in his cabinet or in some other position. Cain is a good man.

    He was mine as well. I heard all of this "he doesn't know how the DC machine works" crap. Inexperience at feeding the country bullshit isn't a deal breaker for me.

    Not for me, either. It's driving me up a wall that Romney doesn't call Obama on his lying BS about Libya. McCain is there in Virginia with him campaigning. I wish that he'd be able to persuade Romney to skip this bipartisan stuff and call Obama out for being the liar that the annointed one is.
