Political Expert Kathryn Pearson Talks GOP Debate On WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Saturday night’s Republican debate in New Jersey, hosted by CBS, gave the presidential candidates a chance to sound off on several political issues in a key voting state.

A new CBS News poll shows a statistical three-way tie for the presidential nomination. Herman Cain’s lead has dropped from 25 percent to 18 percent. Mitt Romney is tied for second place with 15 percent with former house speaker Newt Gingrich.

The poll also shows 30 percent of republican voters now say they are less likely to vote for Cain  because of the recent sexual harrassment allegations against him.

Kathryn Pearson, a local political expert, stopped by the WCCO Sunday Morning Show to talk about Saturday night’s debate winners and losers, and if Michele Bachmann is still in the race.

    Hard to have a good comment as CBS cut the debate short and switched to a rerun of NCIS-their programming was more important than the debate.

    No kidding. I’ve seen a couple of ‘comments’ from this ‘political expert before. I think that I have heard better ‘wisdom’ from a flock of chickadees more than once than I have ever heard from this ‘expert’. What a waste of videotape.
