WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain
acknowledges slipping from the top tier of candidates while
addressing accusations of sexual harassment and confusion about his policy stands.
The Georgia businessman insists his campaign is sound and
supporters remain onboard what he calls the "Cain train."
Cain has denied the accusations and says "nothing has gone
wrong" in terms of the campaign's mechanics. But he tells CNN's
"State of the Union" that some people "are heavily influenced by
perception more so than reality."
Cain also says he supports "targeted identification" in
weeding out potential terrorists. He doesn't see that as racial
profiling and says "if you take a look at the people who have
tried to kill us, it would be easy to figure out exactly what that
identification profile looks like."
