Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain says he's "not a zero" in response to a recent poll that said zero percent of Blacks will support Mitt Romney in the upcoming election. From Politico:

The poll said 94 percent of African-Americans will support President Obama, with the remaining six percent being either undecided or having no opinion.
