Cain's 'impossible dream' resonates with voters
Impossible dream of the 9-9-9 guy? Supporters rally to Herman Cain's business skill, charisma
By The Associated Press

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) ' Herman Cain's improbable campaign for the presidency is all about momentum right now. He's riding the wave of recent polls that have catapulted him from an also-ran in the Republican race to the elite top tier.

Rick Perry significantly in fundraising. Cain has never held elected office and could wilt under the rigors of the campaign and its withering scrutiny.

His everyman image is resonating.
