“The liberal mainstream media, notice how they have tried to destroy Sarah Palin, notice how the more popular Michele Bachmann gets, the more they try to destroy her? You want to know why they go after those two ladies more viciously? Because they know that Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin is going to draw a lot of the women vote away from the Democrat party. They are scared to death of that if they were to run and get the nomination. They are doubly scared that a real black man might run against Barack Obama.”

These were Herman Cain’s words at a recent Tea Party event in Florida. If you don’t know who Herman Cain is then you will soon. He is edging closer and closer to a 2012 presidential run. The above quote was a response to why Cain felt the media was ignoring his presence.

Cain is from Atlanta, Georgia. He has an impressive background of climbing the corporate ladder of numerous successful companies. His last venture was Godfather’s pizza. On the brink of bankruptcy, Cain served as CEO and turned the company around to a profitable state in fourteen months. Here is more information on Herman Cain.

Conservatives Now Outnumber Liberals In Deep-Blue States

Vermont? Rhode Island? Massachusetts? Oregon? Red seems to be the new blue this spring.

“Conservatism, at least at the state level, appears to be growing stronger. Ironically, this trend is most pronounced in America’s least well-off, least educated, most blue collar, most economically hard-hit states. Conservatism, more and more, is the ideology of the economically left behind. The current economic crisis only appears to have deepened conservatism‘s hold on America’s states. This trend stands in sharp contrast to the Great Depression, when America embraced FDR and the New Deal.”

Richard Florida, columnist from The Atlantic

Here is a density map of conservatism across the American landscape and more information on why some traditionally blue states are changing hues.

Some polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 24% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 42% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –18.
  • Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 55% disapprove.
  • Only 25% of voters believe America is heading in the right direction.
  • Just 31% believe their own representative in Congress is the best person for the job and only 40% think their own representative deserves reelection.
  • Only 16% of voters think country would be better off if most incumbents in Congress are reelected.
  • Health Care repeal is favored by 58% of American voters.
