Cain Endorses Gingrich
Poll: Romney over Gingrich 42-27

After he dropped out, Herman Cain told any news outlet that would have him that he would make an "unconventional endorsement" in the presidential contest at the SRLC, right before the South Carolina primary. True to his word, he endorsed "We the People" that day. Yesterday, he took another swing at it and endorsed Newt Gingrich.

This time it was much more conventional:

“Surprise, Surprise,” Cain said as he walked out on stage. “I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for the president of the Unites States.”

Cain gave several reasons for why he reached this “public decision.”

“One of the biggest is the fact I know Speaker Gingrich is a patriot,” Cain said. “Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas and I also know Speaker Gingrich is running for president and going through this sausage grinder and I know what the sausage grinder is all about.

“Speaker Gingrich is running because he cares about the future of the United States of America, we all do,” Cain said.

How will this help Gingrich? Well...

Every little bit helps, right?

New NBC/Marist poll has Romney up 15 in Florida: I'm not suggesting that these numbers are related to Cain's endorsement; I just don't think this deserves it's own post.

The latest polling in Florida has Romney over Gingrich 42-27 percent. Santorum got a five point bump from the last poll, which puts him at 16 percent, over Ron Paul's meager 11.

Oh, Not An Outlier: The Miami Herald and Rasmussen both have similar numbers for Florida.

Miami Herald - Romney 42, Gingrich 31, Santorum 14, Paul 6
Rasmussen - Romney 44, Gingrich 28, Santorum 12, Paul 10
