Herman Cain wins the Florida Straw Poll. You can say it doesn’t matter, and maybe it doesn’t, but Tim Pawlenty dropped out after a poor showing in the Iowa Straw Poll and Iowa ain’t Florida.

UPDATE: I should add, though, that Bachmann won that same Iowa Straw Poll and is now in a total collapse.

Was Gary Johnson among choices?

Herman Cain is the man and it provides a small boost to him. The fact that so many jumped from supporting Perry to supporting him is reassuring for me. More important than the straw poll for me is my friends who have switched from Perry to Cain. Cain 2012. Follow me @

I was surprised when Pawlenty dropped out. I’m not too informed on how this stuff is supposed to work, but I didn’t think one bad show was supposed to be conclusive. Should he have done that, do you think?

No, Tatyana, I don’t think Johnson was among the choices.

Anwyn, I thought it was premature but what seemed obvious about Pawlenty in the debates is that he truly didn’t have that oft-mentioned “fire in his belly.” It gets tiring to constantly fund-raise (and that’s pretty much all candidates are doing at this point) when you don’t want the prize all that badly.
