    this is a statistical tie. what i find most interesting in the report is this:

    Cain attracts only 72% of the Republican vote, while the president earns 82% support from voters in his party. However, Cain leads by 19 among those not affiliated with either major party.

    It's a Primary that's going on right now on the Republican side. I know you're young, and this will actually be the FIRST Presidential election that you are old enough to vote in, but you really need to study up on the course that Presidential politics takes in U.S. elections before you start posting stuff like you did above.



    What is the point of your response to tailgater? It has nothing to do with his comment or the article itself.

    Any comparison of any Republican candidate to Obama with regards to polling at this point is meaningless. It's apples to oranges.



    so the OP title was meaningless?
