Poll: Herman Cain Tops Saxby Chambliss in Primary

Poll: Herman Cain Tops Saxby Chambliss in Primary

From Politico:

Herman Cain would crush Sen. Saxby Chambliss in a Republican primary if the pizza mogul were to run in 2014, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Cain led Chambliss (R-Ga.) 50 percent to 36 percent in a survey from Public Policy Polling.

Of those surveyed, 45 percent approved of the job the incumbent is doing, while 36 percent disapproved. In contrast, 68 percent said they had a favorable opinion of Cain, the former presidential hopeful, and 20 percent had an unfavorable view.

The bulk of those questioned said they wanted a GOP Senate nominee to the right of Chambliss: 43 percent said they preferred someone more conservative than he is, while 38 percent said they wanted him to stay the nominee.

“I’m a problem-solver and a lot of people don’t want problem-solvers — they’d rather have the issue,” Chambliss told POLITICO earlier this week. “And I’m very open at home that I’m going to continue to work hard to solve problems because our country’s in trouble, and you can’t do it without Democrats and Republicans working together.”

PPP also offered match-ups with other possible primary challengers, including outgoing Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and RedState.com editor Erick Erickson, but Chambliss bested all except for Cain.

Cain has said he is not seeking the Senate seat.
