Businessman Herman Cain has won the Presidency 5 Straw Poll in Florida.
Governor Rick Scott announced the results:
Herman Cain: 986 votes (37.1 percent)
Gov. Rick Perry: 410 votes* (15.43 percent)
Gov. Mitt Romney: 372 votes (14 percent)
Rick Santorum: 289 votes (10.9 percent)
Rep. Ron Paul: 276 votes (10.4 percent)
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich: 224 votes (8.4 percent)
Gov. Jon Huntsman: 60 votes (2.3 percent)
Rep. Michele Bachmann: 40 votes (1.5 percent)
Cain worked Florida hard, but he has resonated with Main Street for years. His radio program is very popular.
This is a huge win for Cain, a man Karl Rove referred to dismissively in May as "that talk radio guy."
