Herman Cain Claims Black Community Brainwashed Into Voting Democratic


Herman Cain Claims Black Community Brainwashed Into Voting DemocraticRepublican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain spoke to CNN about the duping of the black community into voting for Democrats time and time again, The Hill reported.

Cain noted that the people who believe that President Barack Obama will receive the entire black vote have not examined the gravity of the current situation in the country.

“I believe, quite frankly, that my campaign, I will garner a minimum of a third of the black vote in this country and possibly more, especially after what the President did recently when he was addressing the Black Caucus,” Cain said in the interview. “That didn’t go over well with a lot of people in this country.”

The Presidential candidate also noted that the black voters were not likely to voice their opinion in such a collective group and would be wise to think for themselves in the upcoming election, according to the Atlantic.

In the 2008 election a total of 96 percent of the black voters who turned out chose Obama over Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), POLITICO reported.
