Herman Cain: Polls show blacks voting for Obama because Romney supporters were working

{mosads}Comedy Central host Jon Stewart had noted that the GOP presidential
nominee has essentially “zero” support among blacks, according to
polls. He pointed out that Cain, as a Romney supporter,
basically represents the “margin of error.”

“I know a lot of other American black conservatives that are gonna
vote for Mitt Romney,” Cain said. “The polls are inaccurate, in my
opinion, based upon anecdotal evidence, based upon people that I know.”

Unemployment among blacks is double that of the rest of the country,
but Cain denied that he meant blacks represented by current polls are
all unemployed.

Cain, who dropped his own bid for the GOP nomination last December,
has proved himself a good sport through regular appearances on “The
Daily Show” as well as fellow Comedy Central news spoof show “The
Colbert Report.”

He defended Romney’s “different style” as the reason some people see
him as aloof.

“It’s a difference in style,” Cain said. “[Romney] has a personality,
but some people tend to voluntarily or involuntarily suppress it. I
don’t suppress my personality at all.”
