Rick Perry’s Texans Are Searching for Herman Cain
Posted on Oct 10, 2011
According to Google’s data, “four of the top 10 cities with the most searches for [Herman Cain] are major cities right in Texas.” Those would be Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.
Cain, the only candidate of color in a Republican field large enough to include two Mormons, has been climbing in the polls while Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently took a big dive.
Poll watching is akin to weather predicting, but it’s worth noting that a man who once may have been alone in believing he could win is now in a statistical tie with front-runner Mitt Romney. —PZS
