Senator Herman Cain? I do like that idea!

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain leads Georgia GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss handily in a Public Policy Polling survey of potential primary match-ups for Chambliss in 2014 – 50 to 36 percent.

The incumbent has drawn the ire of conservatives in recent days for expressing a willingness to abandon the Americans for Tax Reform pledge against tax increases. Cain has expressed no interest in running.

Only 38 percent of Republican primary voters favor Chambliss as the party’s nominee next year, compared to 43 percent who want someone more conservative.

A total of 45 percent of Republican approve of the senator’s job performance, while 36 percent disapprove. As for the businessman Cain, 68 percent of Republicans have a favorable opinion of him, compared to 20 percent who have a negative view.

Chambliss holds big leads over the Republicans who have shown the most interest in opposing him. Rep. Paul Broun trails 57 to 14 percent, Rep. Tom Price 52 to 34 percent, and former Secretary of State Karen Handel 52 to 23 percent.

“Saxby Chambliss is in a weak position with Republican voters, but right now most of hispotential primary foes have low name recognition,” Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy, said in a statement. “If one of them mounts a strong campaign, though, he’ll be in a lot of trouble.”

    Notice how the media is smearing all the conservatives “who made a promise to Grover Norquist“.

    Actually, no one promised Norquist anything. Those politicians signed a pledge to their constituents. If they break it, they are liars. More media lies.

    Running against Saxby Chambliss, a good Senator by the way, will only be a replay of Indiana, Maryland, and Nevada with a Democrat ultimately winning. Why not look to unseat Democrats?????

    9-9-9

    Who the fuck elected Grover Norquist (a Muslim Brotherhood supporter by the way) to anything and who the hell is he to demand anyone sign his “pledge”?

    If Cain knocks off Chambliss, consider this seat going Dem.

    That’s true!

    But then, the candidates/elected officials CHOSE to sign that pledge, or not to sign it.

    And also they make their pledge before God. Lying is a sin, and in this case, an important one. We are much too casual about candidates violating promises to their constituents. What’s the point of voting for anybody if we have no way of guessing what they’ll actually do once elected?

    Just as long as when he gets elected he never calls the traitor John Kerry “my friend” or any word of respect.

    ps

    Chambliss is a snake in the grass RINO, (realtor) and he holds hands with John McCain in the Senate cloak room.

    I like and respect Herman Cain, would LOVE to see him elected to the Senate, and don’t give rat’s ass what anyone else thinks.

    @ taxfreekiller:
    It’s not that Chambliss is a sellout ready to raise everyone’s taxes. It’s a matter of principle! Chambliss doesn’t let no Washington fatcats and lobbyists tell him that he should keep Federal taxes down, no-sirree. He represents his district.

    I agree that Norquist can get @#$%ed sideways -- on foreign policy.

    But in the case of the tax pledge, that was some good Norquist did. And Chambliss’s case against it is nothing but self-serving marsh gas.
