Poll: Was it Cain the candidate or Cain's accusers that cut his campaign short?

Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain announced this weekend that he suspended his campaign. Support had waned in recent weeks after allegations of sexual harassment and a woman claimed they had a 13-year affair. He didn't officially drop out of the race, but said he suspended the campaign after assessing the impact the sex allegations had on his family and supporters.

He said again Saturday that the allegations are false and that media spin was to blame. Some argue he was undone by the sexual harassment and affair allegations, by ill-explained positions and foreign policy fumbles or by amateur political moves. Some say he didn't capture the collective black Republican support that could've helped him.

"I am not going to be silenced and I will not go away," Cain said, as he announced a new website, TheCainSolutions.com.
