Over the weekend, Hermain Cain had a decisive victory in the Florida Straw Poll, garnering more votes than Perry and Romney combined.  So what does this mean?

Before you say nothing, here’s a little food for thought…

  • The Florida Straw Poll has predicted the Republican Nominee every year since 1979
  • The Florida GOP has a more extensive screening process, unlike Iowa’s Ames Straw Poll that is generally won by the candidate that can bus in the most supporters
  • Cain also won Colorado’s Western Conservative Summit with 48% of the vote

With Perry floundering, will this have an impact on the rankings or will it break Florida’s 32 year streak of predicting the nominee?
