Presidential candidate Herman Cain has shot up in Zogby’s latest poll ahead of Texas Governor Rick Perry. According to Zogby’s latest data:

Rick Perry has tumbled by more than 20 percentage points over the past month among Republican presidential primary voters and is now second to Herman Cain, who leads the field with 28%.Mitt Romney received little benefit from Perrys fall, garnering 17% of the vote for third place.As for President Barack Obama, both his job approval (42%) and the percentage who believe he deserves re-election (37%) are little changed from recent polls, but he does seem to be winning back some supporters who have been disappointed in his job performance.

These results are from an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll conducted Sept. 23-26 of all likely voters and of likely Republican primary voters.


Cain won the Florida straw poll over the weekend with 37 percent of the vote. Mr. Cain had more support than both Perry and and Romney combined who followed Mr. Cain in the straw poll second and third respectively.
