Poll: Herman Cain's plot to dominate the world coming together quite nicely

The businessman and former talk radio host from Atlanta is the top pick of likely Republican voters in Georgia, says a new WSB/Insider Advantage poll. Reports WSB:

Cain, a businessman and former talk show host, held a large lead with 26 percent, double the second candidate, Michele Bachmann.

"I'm surprised at the level that Herman Cain is leading the rest of the pack. I'm not surprised by the fact that he's leading. He's been in Atlanta. He's been on the radio,” said Matt Towery, CEO of InsiderAdvantage.

“Herman Cain's performance does show two things. One, there is a certain degree of hometown support for him, and secondly, there's a degree of support from people who are disaffected and don't want anything to do with politicians who held office,” Towery told Channel 2’s Lori Geary.

Following Cain and Bachman in the poll is former Speaker Of the House Newt Gingrich, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The poll of 407 people has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.

Kind of shocking: Gingrich is trailing Bachmann, a congresswoman who hasn't even announced her candidacy.
