Should Herman Cain drop out of the race? Or should he stay in the race until the voters tell him to leave? Does he fight? Or does he leave? And if he should leave, why? What do you say?

When have we become a nation where you are guilty until proven innocent.
I am sticking with Cain.
I pray he stays in and fights this.

If that Washington Times piece is true? And that’s if? Perry needs to go now. There’s no difference between those allegations and the slanderous allegations made on Herman Cain.

Cain should do what he believes is the right thing to do.

It’s hard to argue with that statement.

If Herman Cain is guilty he should drop out now and spare his family an additional sadness.

However, if he is innocent (which I believe he is) then he should stay and fight to the end. They are afraid of Herman Cain and that is why they are attacking him.

If this latest woman to come forward has LIVING PROOF of her accusations...then she should bring them forward and put them out there for everyone to see. If she is just making an accusation then shame on her and she should have to stand before Herman Cain and his family and repeat those accusations. I think it is bogus but...that’s me. At any rate until they can PROVE Mr. Cain to be guilty ... I say press on, fight the good fight and prove them all losers.

I was a Cain supporter from the outset. I am so disappointed with the current revelations that I could cry. The fact is that he had a relationship with a woman and his wife was unaware of it. Whether sex was involved matters not. I have tried to justify this in my own mind and can’t find a reasonable story. Let’s face it.. we have high standards for ourselves and expect the same from others. Fact is I no longer care what he does.

I would agree with that. But you’re correct...these accusations should be substantiated.

Stay in, by all means! I'm reminded of a poem by W.B. Yeats:

ONCE, when midnight smote the air,
Eunuchs ran through Hell and met
On every crowded street to stare
Upon great Juan riding by:
Even like these to rail and sweat
Staring upon his sinewy thigh.

The Lamestream media, the Demos, and Academia will never tolerate a black conservative.

I’m a fan of Herman Cain the man, but not the Presidential candidate. I don’t think he’s qualified to be President, but I salute his conservatism and his work ethic. I think he’s naive and almost innocent in a way. 99% of men would be quilty of something more than a platonic relationship with the known circumstanial evidence; however, I think Cain is innocent of anything more than poor judgment and a soft heart. I think “Ginger” is a whack job making up the sexual nature of the relationship for fame or money in some way. If Cain drops out now, it will look like he’s got something to hide and would damage his reputation. I would hate to see that, as I don’t believe he deserves it.

It doesn't matter whether he is innocent or not he admitted he was a friend of White's and giving her money without his wife's knowledge.

He's a goner!

Poll: Should Herman Cain Drop Out Of The Race?

What do you say ping list?

I say he's said it's up to his wife.

My opinion therefore is of no consequence but I think Cain should drop out. He is no longer a viable candidate. His supporters need to find the next best alternative.

Absolutely not. Nothing has been proven with these allegations. That’s all they are is allegations with no substance behind them.

That’s true. It’s definitely up to his wife. I merely wanted to know what people thought.

Where did I say he was or is guilty of sexual harrassment or an affair..?
I am very suspicious of the motives of the accusers..and the last one seemed to be after money.

I do think he may be guilty of having a soft heart.

I like Cain..I have never put Cain first on my list..I do support Perry.

Watching Cain on Hannity now. Talking about how tough it is on his family. supporters want him to run, but he has to put his family first. Has to consider what to do with the contributions. Not hard to read between the lines.

Time to get out. Prolonging the campaign probably won’t improve his chances, and it could do irreparable damage to his beautiful family.

It’s not the sexual allegations that lost supporters but the editorial board in Milwaukee where he looked lost.

I wonder if he really expected to get this far? Once you’re in the lead it’s open season and full spotlights.

Don't be so humble. Your opinion matters a great deal. Aren't you a vocal supporter of Rick Perry on this site?

Herman Cain is already out of the race.

He's just stumping for a few days so the staff can get paid out of the campaign coffers.

Even if he doesn’t become the nominee, the suggestion is that he stay in the campaign until he gets matching funds. Then, he can bow out of the race, make and endorsement while retiting any campaign debt.

There is no next best alternative. The best was Palin, she didn’t run. Cain was next up. There is no third. The third are a bevy of establishment-approved losers. This is like 2008 all over again.

Yes, Get Out Now 26.35%

No, Stay And Fight On 72.46%

Other: 1.2%

The verdict is in. Three quarters of those responding to the poll want Herman to stay and fight. Give ‘em hell, Herman.
