JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Herman Cain has arrived in Jacksonville tonight as part of a Stand Up For America event just as a poll showing Jacksonville's preference for another GOP candidate over President Obama is released.
The Republican presidential candidate went into the Times-Union Center around 7 p.m. after chatting and shaking hands with the crowd gathered outside. Tickets to go inside cost between $60 and $80.
Cain arrived the same day a University of North Florida poll shows that among Jacksonville voters President Obama is tied with GOP candidate Mitt Romney, but leads Gov. Rick Perry and Herman Cain.
The poll results showed that if the election for president were held today, 40 percent said they would vote for Obama, while another 40 percent opted for Romney in a match-up between the two.
