Facebook Fans Dropping Herman Cain After Election Exit

After a long stretch at the top of the new fans per day rankings on our our Inside Facebook 2012 Election Tracker, Herman Cain’s fan count is heading in the opposite direction after the announcement that he’s officially “suspending” his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination race following allegations of sexual harassment and a 13-year extramarital affair.

That leaves Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul nearly tied for the top spot of fans gained in our Elections Tracker. As of today, it looks like Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are neck-and-neck for number of fans gained. Politicos believe the GOP presidential candidate field is narrowing to a two-man race between Mitt Romney and Gingrich. Romney is currently third in the fans gained rankings.

While Cain supporters will naturally migrate to other GOP candidates as the race draws toward a close, the Georgia businessman’s Facebook fans could still hold steady if his post-election activities draw enough attention. All Facebook reports that Cain is currently launching a website called TheCainSolutions, which is meant to be a grassroots government initiative that also continues to push his 9-9-9 economic plan. The site is currently live, although it has no linkage between it and Cain’s Facebook Page.
