Coralville Courier Editor's Overview: This is an example of the media throwing anything up on the 'try to paint Mitt Romney look bad' wall to see if it sticks. You're now supposed to think, well if Herman Cain were to have a substantial lead, what does that say about Mitt Romney? Never mind that the media didn't allow Herman to survive the primary, so despite Herman's confidence, he would not now have a substantial lead over Obama. He's not the GOP nominee, coulda, shoulda, woulda stuff is irrelevent.
Herman Cain would have a "substantial lead" over President Barack Obama if Republicans had made him their nominee, according to Herman Cain, who spoke at the University of Florida on Thursday.
