Accusations Not Yet Costing Cain in Early States

Saturday, 05 November 2011 06:37 AM EDT

DES MOINES, Iowa — Republicans in early voting states seem to be giving Herman Cain the benefit of the doubt.

But almost a week after the disclosure that he was accused of sexual harassment in the 1990s, they say they need more time before rendering judgment.

The furor over the claims shows no sign of easing, although it remains a question whether the former restaurant chain CEO's presidential campaign will suffer less than two months before the first 2012 nominating contest is scheduled in Iowa.

Interviews with more than two dozen GOP activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina suggest no immediate danger for Cain. But the questions persist while other candidates jockey for voters' support.

The allegations follow weeks of new doubts about Cain's tax proposal and opposition to abortion rights.
