“If you want the real headline today it would say, ‘A star is born,’” Matt Towery, the conservative syndicated columnist and CEO of the nonpartisan InsiderAdvantage polling firm, told Newsmax Friday.
Only one of the 29-member focus group initially was a Cain supporter. By evening’s end, however, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, who also served as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, had won an overwhelming majority among those on Luntz’s focus group.
“I have never had this kind of reaction until tonight,” said Luntz. “Something very special happened this evening.”

You know, I was shocked at the focus group reaction. Granted, i missed half the debate, but he didn't stand out to me that much. But what happened after, at the focus group, really came off as "fake" to me. I even joked that maybe the republicans really are so desperate that they will go ahead and play the race card and try to beat obama with another black man, thinking that may be the only way to win over the black vote.
On a side note, I think Ron Paul really was a hit with the audience though.
