      Amid sexual harassment allegations, could presidential candidate Herman Cain's comments about American Muslims put a dent in his poll popularity?

      "I have had one very well-known Muslim voice say to me directly that a majority of Muslims share the extremist views," Cain said to GQ.

      Cain refused to name the "well-known Muslim voice" but said he trusted his adviser and believed the statement. In March, Cain was harshly criticized for saying he would not feel "comfortable" appointing Muslims to his Cabinet.

      An NBC poll released Monday showed Cain was still leading the Republican ranks, despite a woman publicly accusing him of harassing her while he was head of the National Restaurant Association last week.

      Are Cain's statements rubbing you the wrong way or do you still support his candidacy? Weigh in below in our comments section.
