Herman Cain promises strong black support in general election

He tells Fox News he'd win at least 33% of African-Americans against Barack Obama.

"The African-American vote -- I am confident, based upon black people I run into, black people that used to call to my radio show, black people that have signed up on my website to support me, I believe -- quite frankly -- that I will garner a minimum of 1/3 of the black vote in this country and possibly more. Especially after what the president did recently when he was addressing the black caucus. That didn't go over well with a lot of people in this country.

.... my message is resonating -- not because of my color but because the message is simple and it is sticking to the American people, in terms of actually making a difference."

Cain had perhaps the best moment of his campaign last weekend when he trounced his opponents in the Florida straw poll.
