nate Silver, over at FiveThirtyEight, which is now a part of the New York Times, has released his latest distillation of polling number in the way that only he can, with immense detail, verifiable facts, intelligent opinon, and overall the best in political coverage bar none. so… based on his latest rollup of polling data, here’s a chart graphing the preference of the candidates across the conservatism spectrum of Republicans. It’s got one rather interesting feature I want to just point out real quick. Herman Cain’s support is VERY heavily loaded towards the uber-conservative side, which would tend to indicate that his current fidelity scandal may affect his numbers to a greater degree that it would affect him were he more popular with the moderate Republicans. Maybe he shouldn’t have targeted quite THAT far towards the right?..
