Herman Cain's Favorability Rating Falling

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

A new poll has found that the sexual harassment accusations surrounding Herman Cain are beginning to take a toll -- his favorability rating is plummeting, and that was before Monday's stunning allegations.

The New York Daily News reports that a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Sunday finds 57% of Republicans view Cain favorably. That's down 9% in just one week.

Forty percent of those questioned said the allegations have made them view Cain in a less favorable light.

“The most striking thing is that Herman Cain is actually seeing a fairly substantial decline in favorability ratings toward him particularly among Republicans," Ipsos pollster Chris Jackson told Reuters.

Four women have now come forward to claim that Cain made unwanted advances towards them. Cain vehemently denies all of the allegations.
