Cain said he doesn't think he'll have a problem convincing establishment Republicans to accept him as a legitimate candidate.
"They are not going to reject me," he said confidently. "They're going to slowly warm up to me because I think they are starting to see that I'm creating a lot of excitement."
At the Georgia Republican Convention on May 14, Cain was reportedly greeted with 10 standing ovations that dwarfed those given to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
"He defies the media's idea of what a Republican is," one delegate told the Southern Political Report. "He's a black entrepreneur who speaks for everyone. That's something people are warming up to. Plus, he hasn't held [elective] office before, so he has no record that people can take issue with. He's popular."
On "The Rush Limbaugh Show" today, one caller told Limbaugh he is leaning toward voting for Herman Cain in the Republican primary.
"I don't think anybody is a long-shot right now," Limbaugh responded. "There's nothing that says Herman Cain can't win this thing."
But does Cain have what it takes to compete with Obama's massive fundraising efforts?
As one supporter put it, "Obama might be raising $1 billion, but the voters in this country are going to raise some Cain."
WND Reporter Chelsea Schilling wrote a terrific column about Herman Cain. Much of the information in this column will never be reported in the mainstream media. In order for you to receive the full benefit of all that you can find out about Herman Cain from this column, you will need to read the full story. You can then read what Herman considers to be solutions to the issues, including boosting the economy, taxes, energy independence, fixing the nation's entitlement programs, and immigration.
There was an excellent question Chelsea asked Herman Cain that I have to share with you here. Chelsea had asked Herman if he "believes the mainstream media will give him preferential treatment because he is a black candidate, just as they appeared to do with Obama during the 2008 campaign." Before you read the complete column where you will read Herman's excellent response, ponder on that question for awhile. How would you want a Presidential candidate for the Republican Party to answer that question? How do you think Herman responded? I will only give you this one clue: Herman knows that the Obama supporters will forget that he is black, and he knows that the opponents will vilify him for being Conservative.

In light of these events, it is vital for you to know where Herman stands on Israel:
"On the other hand, I do know enough about our solid relationship with Israel from decades of observations that I would make it even stronger, a move that isn't just about dollars. And, I would not be hesitant to let the rest of the world know that we will stand by and with our friends."You get the idea, right? Not since 1979 when Ronald Reagan was addressing the nation in various places have I been this excited! And I hope that you will soon join me in this excitement, if you haven't already! We know that "Spooky Dude" (George Soros) will have his minions out in force once "The Hermanator" becomes the Conservative force in the flesh.
Just forget what the establishment Republicans (RINOs) want. That hasn't worked out for election victories for the GOP. I just want to prove to you that this is the person that should be the top CONSERVATIVE candidate for the Republican ticket - that can win! So, watch this recent video with me, and then you decide. I'm just sayin'...

Obama's 'worst nightmare' seeks showdown with prez
'I feel God's hand in decision that I am going to announce'

An American success story and tea-party favorite who could be Obama's "worst nightmare" tells WND he will make a "very important announcement" to the nation in less than 48 hours.
"I feel God's hand in this decision that I'm going to announce on Saturday, May 21, in Atlanta at Centennial Olympic Park at high noon," Herman Cain, an Atlanta radio talk-show host, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and 2004 Senate seeker, told WND. "We're expecting more than 5,000 people to be there at the announcement rally."
Obama's Worst Nightmare
An invitation on his presidential exploratory committee website notes that Cain will share "his final decision about a potential run for the White House in 2012." His announcement will be broadcast live on his website.
Hinting at a launch of a 2012 campaign, Cain said, "People are starting to see through the broken promises, the failed policies and lack of leadership of President Obama.
"Americans will do a double take when they hear me talk about my common-sense solutions – they are going to say what thousands of people have said over the past several months: He makes sense. He makes it clear. He gives solutions, and he's not afraid to lead. That's what people want to see."
Will Obama meet his match?
In an exclusive July 2010 interview, Cain, a devout Christian, disclosed to WND that he has been "prayerfully considering" a bid for the GOP nomination. He also said he would "take the race card off the table" in a challenge against Obama as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012.
"We need a realistic candidate to run on the Republican ticket who can beat Barack Obama – not just beat the Democrats," Cain said. "We've also got to beat Barack Obama."
He added, "Obama is a master of rhetoric. He is a master of deceptive language. And any white candidate who runs against him will be up against the race card. I take the race card off the table."
As WND reported, Cain recently wowed a focus group of 29 likely GOP voters assembled by pollster Frank Luntz following a May 5 Republican presidential debate in South Carolina.
Even Luntz said the reaction of the group was unprecedented in its unanimity – Cain won. Most of those participating in the focus group had no previous familiarity with Cain. Only one of those bowled over by Cain watched the debate with intention of voting for him.
The following is a video of the focus group's reaction to the debate:

Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann skipped the debate. The event included former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson in addition to Cain.
After talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh watched the South Carolina debate, he declared to his listeners, "Herman Cain made me think I was listening to me in every answer."
"The debate was absolutely a catalyst," Cain told WND. "Our online volunteers and online contributions increased significantly. The media requests have also increased significantly. A lot of people already knew who I was, especially when they read my articles, but after they saw me live on that Fox News debate, things have been going up exponentially ever since."
Cain blew the competition away once again, receiving 28 percent of more than 2,300 votes, in a recent WND poll that asked, "Who's your choice for Republican presidential nominee in 2012?" Ron Paul came in second, garnering 13 percent, while Sarah Palin, Allen West and Michele Bachmann each received 7 percent of the votes. Donald Trump, Chris Christie and Newt Gingrich each received 4 percent or less.
