Cain's running start; Deep South could be crucial

Former Godfather's Pizza CEO and Republican candidate for president Herman Cain

Herman Cain's rise in the polls is not just a stroke of luck, he's still riding high on public opinion surveys. He lacks money, but he has survived several high-profile campaigns and attacks on his 9-9-9 tax, overhaul plan.

Cain has a focus on the South, which is known for racial perceptions. The deep south didn't support Obama in 2008, this would be a sign of progress, because of being an African-American.

The elected Representatives in Southern states has become more racially divided in recent years. Will Cain set himself up for a disappointment? States such as Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi is known to have the same racial patterns of another race, particularly of one who is a candidate for President.
