Cain: Trump Is GOP Front-Runner Because He's a Leader and a Fighter
Herman Cain joined Sean Hannity tonight to weigh in on the 2016 race and reveal which candidates he thinks have the best chance at getting the Republican nomination.
Cain said that Donald Trump is continuing to dominate in the polls because people know that he can't be influenced financially by lobbyists and campaign donors, and because Trump is a leader and a fighter.
"That’s why people keep turning out in big numbers at these rallies," Cain said.
Do you think an anti-establishment candidate like Trump or Ted Cruz can go all the way? Hannity asked.
"I believe that the base is angry enough," Cain said. "Whoever gets the nomination, it will be because Main Street USA spoke and not the establishment. They don't run this country like they think they do. Main Street USA is rising up."
Cain said he's not endorsing a GOP candidate yet, but his "pick six" at the beginning of the race were Trump, Cruz, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee, based on the strength of their leadership qualities and ideas.
"Now, since then, four of my six are still in the running," Cain said. "I looked at those six as the six that I could personally be happy with if they got the nomination, to help them become president."
