War Room poll: Perry support plummets, Cain rises, Romney’s on top in FL

Debates matter. So did Florida’s straw poll.

Just ask two guys: Herman Cain and Rick Perry.

Cain is now running in second place in Florida now that his support surged nearly 19 percentage points after last month’s Republican Party of Florida’s Presidency 5 debate and straw poll, according to a survey of likely Florida voters conducted by Gainesville-based War Room Logistics, which typically polls for Republicans.

Meantime, Perry’s support plummeted nearly 16 percentage points.

Perry had been tied as a Florida frontrunner with Mitt Romney at about 25 percent on Sept. 20, dropped to third/fourth place with 9 percent of the vote where he’s statistically tied with Newt Gingrich (10 percent).

Romney’s support grew a modest 3 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Romney also remains the best general-election candidate against President Obama, according to the poll. Romney trails him 42-48 – the smallest margin. Against all the other Republican candidates, Obama cracks the magic 50 percent threshold.

The War Room Logistics surveys have been unlike any other in Florida because they’re based on a sample of likely voters, instead of just registered voters. Around now, it’s more common (and cheaper) to poll registered voters because the campaigns aren’t in full swing and it’s a little tougher to estimate the likely voter population.

And since the numbers swung so wildly in just 10 days, it’s a safe bet to say this is anyone’s game right now. Though it’s not just a two-man race. Herman Cain is a force to be reckoned with.

At least for now.

STOP PRIVATE COMPANIES FROM USING INMATE LABOR AND DISPOSING OF JOBS AVAILABLE TO LAW ABIDING CITIZENS; These guys are fully aware of the use of inmate labor nationwide. UNICOR is reported to be using 26,000 inmates in their industrial operations making everything from furniture to body armor and other sensitive military materials including parts for missles. Military contractors have lost contract after contract to UNICOR that resulted in job losses that cannot now be counted with accuracy, there have been so many that have gone behind prison fences. Government administrators are not only aware of the increasing unemployment, they say they are working diligently to create jobs to put the unemployed back to work earning a decent wage. However, they have to do this without upsetting the applecart. Huge corporations operating under PIECP have lobbyists and special interest personnel who make campaign contributions to those lawmakers they can depend upon to keep the status quo in good health and the profits rolling in. There we're faced with the first obstacle to actually creating jobs - that is in direct conflict with those using cheap inmate labor with no desire to go back to paying benefits and proper wages to their employees.
