Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain told “The Daily Show.” host Jon Stewart that he predicts more black voters will vote for Mitt Romney than polls indicate because many “working” blacks likely were not polled.

“They were working, so they didn’t answer the phone when they took the poll,” Cain said Wednesday night on “The Daily Show.” “Believe it or not, some black people have jobs, and careers, and they run businesses. They didn’t take that into account.”

Cain was referencing a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that found Obama continues to lead among key parts of his political base, including blacks (94 percent to 0 percent.)

Unemployment among blacks is double that of the rest of the country, but Cain denied that he meant blacks represented by current polls are all unemployed.
