Cain is a large increase in positive media coverage for his victory over Perry in the Florida poll last month. The only African American Republican candidate in the field, Cain has been getting traction among GOP voters and conservative columnists with 9-9-9 tax plan – a proposal to replace the current tax code with a tax nine percent income level, a nine percent corporate tax and the tax of nine percent of domestic sales.

The CBS News shows Cain as the best choice among self-described conservatives, with the support of 21 percent. (Two weeks ago, he voted in only six percent of this group.) Romney in polls in second place among conservatives with the support of 15 percent, followed by Perry at 13 percent. Cain is also the best choice of Republican primary voters who support the Tea Party, the vote by 24 percent to 17 percent of Romney, Gingrich percent and 13 percent of Perry 12.

However, Cain is strong as he embarks on a tour that will keep him busy for much of October – a scheduling decision that you have a question how serious is his presidential campaign. Cain has no plans to return to the first in the nation-state of Iowa until mid-November, and has seen significant staff shaken, the most recent loss of respected media director – a sign that your staff does not see as a serious challenge for the nomination.

The poll suggests that Romney may gain strength with the argument that he has the best chance to unseat President Obama next year: 32 percent of Republicans say Romney is the candidate most likely to defeat the president. Twenty-one percent said Perry, while only eight percent chose Cain.

Romney also led the field in which exhibits the strongest leadership qualities, with 26 percent indicates that the former governor of Massachusetts. Perry was second with 23 percent, followed by Gingrich, with 14 percent and Cain to nine percent.

He asked who else cares about people, and Cain Romney led the field, both cited by 16 percent of Republican primary voters. Four candidates – Romney, Cain, Bachmann and Perry – finished close to each other above the list of candidates who most shares voters’ values.

The survey was published following the announcement of governor of New Jersey Chris Christie would not enter the race despite pressure from Republicans unhappy with the Republican field (the survey was conducted before the announcement). With the deadline for submission of many Republican primary coming at the end of October and the primary vote expected to begin in early January, time is running out for new candidates to enter the race.

In the survey, Republican primary voters were asked whether they were satisfied with the current field. Forty-six percent said yes – and just as many say they want new elections.

It is not clear that this option could be again. There is a groundswell of the most prominent Republicans are openly considering a 2008 race for vice president, Sarah Palin, to jump in: Three-quarters of Republican primary voters said he would not want to see her enter the race. Only 23 percent said they wanted to see a Palin candidacy.
