It is often said that "if you hear Herman Cain once, you’ll never forget him." Apparently, several million Americans agree.
Last night, Herman appeared at the FOX News/ South Carolina GOP presidential debate, the first of its kind for the 2012 presidential election. You can check out the video from the debate here.
Here’s just some of the media coverage about his performance at the debate:
- Human Events: "Cain’s outsider status, his clarity in his responses, and his successful past as a businessman who turned around companies that were failing, resonated with an audience that previously did not know much about him."
- CBS News: "Based on the Fox News focus group conducted immediately following the event, Herman Cain is about to run away with the GOP nomination."
- National Journal: "An African-American newcomer who brags about his lack of Washington experience bests a field of more seasoned pols. Nope, we’re not talking about Barack Obama. We’re talking about former pizza king Herman Cain, who dominated the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign last night in South Carolina…"
- Even The Huffington Post agreed that Herman "sent shockwaves" at the debate.
Frank Luntz conducted a focus group immediately following the debate, and he was in awe of their response: “I have never had this kind of reaction until tonight,” Luntz said. “Something very special happened this evening.” Clearly, Herman was the winner. Watch the focus group video here.
Additionally, the term "Herman Cain" trended worldwide on Twitter and became the #2 most searched term on Google in the past 24 hours. Clearly, it’s true: "if you hear Herman Cain once, you’ll never forget him."
While he has not yet made a final decision regarding whether or not he should launch a formal campaign, Herman was encouraged by the response to his performance last night, and he inched closer to make a final decision. But he needs your help.
