Cain’s Trouble With Women Voters Threatens GOP Bid [VIDEO]
As Herman Cain struggles to stabilize his campaign, the Republican presidential candidate is rolling out his wife to defend him — and help stop the flood of female voters fleeing from him.
Polls show allegations that he sexually harassed several women have rocked his campaign, with his standing dropping sharply among female voters since the first accusations surfaced two weeks ago.

Since then, he’s raised eyebrows by referring to the House Democratic Leader as “Princess Nancy” Pelosi, saying presidential rival Michele Bachmann would be “tutti-frutti” ice cream, and shrugging off a joke about Anita Hill.
Enter Mrs. Cain. She vouched for him in an interview Monday, telling Fox News “he totally respects women.”
Referring to the harassment allegations, Gloria Cain said she knows “that’s not the person he is.”
