I found this interesting because Cain is interpreting the polls to be some sort of proof that no one believes his accusers. What I find interesting is that 85% think people are falsely accused of sexual harassment some most or all of the time.. Yet a majority of that same group don't think that in Cain's case.

A new Newsweek poll conducted by Douglas E. Schoen, LLC, found that 85 percent of those surveyed think that people are accused unfairly in sexual-harassment cases some, most, or all of the time. The same poll found that 52 percent think the charges against Cain are probably or definitely true, and 73 percent care somewhat or a great deal when a public figure is accused of harassment. Only 18 percent said they don’t care very much, 7 percent not at all, and 3 percent were unsure.

this poll means nothing in determining guilt.
But they could mean something as far a additional women coming forward. If the perception is that these woman are gold diggers, or sluts, like the Cain campaign has implied in their attacks against the women that have already come forward, women will be more reluctant to make allegations of sexual harassment.

the story has been out for 2 weeks and it hasn't gained any traction.

Trouble is the 52% doesn't own the 15 thousand dollar Lie detecting Software Program mentioned on another Post.

Cain is innocent, Lib's just hate the idea of a Free Thinking Black Conservative who is self made and ...LOL, not even I can type that with a straight face.

Oh yeah?

But a CBS News poll released Friday suggests that some women aren't satisfied with Cain's recent behavior: his support among Republican women has dropped 13 percent in the two weeks since the allegations against him surfaced.

In the survey, which was conducted by telephone from November 6-10, 15 percent of conservative women expressed support for Cain, down from 28 percent on October 25.

The candidate has also lost ground with conservatives, dropping from 30 percent to 23 percent support. And there has been some movement among Tea Party supporters as well; their support for Cain has declined from 32 percent to 19 percent.
