Cain says campaign not losing steam

SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Herman Cain said in Florida Sunday night he's forging ahead with his campaign for the Republican nomination for president despite his drop in the polls.

"Well, I've faded from first to third, and that's not exactly fading all the way down to the bottom," Cain told reporters before delivering a speech to about 350 people in Sarasota.

The Georgia businessman, whose campaign has been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment and hobbled at times by his own inability to articulate his position on the issues, noted he's still among the top three candidates in most polls and that his supporters are sticking with him, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported.

"What that says is that people who get on the Cain Train, they don't get off," Cain said.

Cain, who trails former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in most polls, told his supporters in Sarasota, Democratic President Barack Obama has failed to show strong leadership and has an "arrogant disregard for the American people."
