Republican Women Voters and Herman Cain
Nearly 1 in 5 Republican women, 19 percent, say the allegations of sexual harassment concern them either a great deal or quite a bit, but half of Republican women say the allegations do not concern them.
Overall, Cain's standing among GOP primary voters overall hasn't been diminished greatly. More than half, 52 percent, still feel positively towards Cain, while 19 percent say they feel negatively. Those who identify with the tea party still view Cain with a 62 percent positivity rating.
With one accuser coming forward publicly on Thursday, that may change. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, explained the view of some Republican women on CNN Sunday, noting that without public accusers, it was just "politics as usual" and that "unless there's something that's really sexual harassment" her view wouldn't change. With one woman now publicly accusing Cain of sexual harassment, it may be time to change that view.
