Fox News Poll: Cain Accusations Politically Motivated


A majority of American voters think the sexual harassment claims made against GOP candidate Herman Cain are motivated by something other than fairness while a minority thinks the claims are serious enough to disqualify him from the races, according to Fox News.

Since October, Cain has been battling claims that he sexually harassed four women well over a decade ago.
In a Fox News poll released Wednesday, 52 percent of voters think that politics (21 percent) or the possibility of financial gain (31 percent) is behind the claims. 25 percent think the women making the claims are motivated by their desire to seek fairness.

Other results:

• 23% think allegations are serious enough to disqualify Cain
• 33% disagree
• 43% say they need more time to decide
• 26% of women think the claims are serious enough to disqualify Cain
• 20% of men agree
• 44% of women need more time to decide
• 41% of men need more time to decide
• 7% of voters think Cain has done an excellent job handling the situation
• 23% think Cain has done a good job
• 27% think Cain has done a fair job
• 33% think Cain has done a poor job
• 46% of Republican voters say Cain has done an excellent or good job
• 47% say fair or poor
• 53% of voters think reporters have been unfair to Cain
• 46% think the media have behaved the worst

In general, 28 percent of American voters say that they have said or done something in the past that, if it were made public, would probably disqualify them from running for elected office.
