Posted on | May 11, 2011 | 26 Comments

Via Steve Foley at Citizens for Cain:

Herman Cain . . . . . . . .23.7%
Mike Huckabee . . . . . . 12.3%
Newt Gingrich . . . . . . . 9.7%
Ron Paul . . . . . . . . . . . 9.1%
Sarah Palin . . . . . . . . . 8.3%
Michele Bachmann . . . . 6.8%
Donald Trump . . . . . . . 6.6%
Mitt Romney . . . . . . . . 5.8%
Tim Pawlenty . . . . . . . 4.4%
Rick Santorum . . . . . . . 4.2%
Mitch Daniels . . . . . . . . 2.2%
Jon Huntsman . . . . . . . 0.2%

This survey by 2012 Iowa Report is evidently not a random poll of likely Republican caucus-goers, but is described thus: “The 2012 Iowa Report Poll, a project of Grassfire Nation, is a special survey of Iowa conservatives conducted weekly to help measure where Iowa conservatives stand on the 2012 Republican presidential field.”

I’m not sure what that means, but it certainly demonstrates that last week’s South Carolina debate helped boost Cain’s profile.┬áHe has gotten past the problem of “Herman Who?”
