    Georgia businessman Herman Cain has won a surprise victory in a Republican presidential straw poll in Florida.

    Mr Cain secured 37% of the vote, beating Texas Governor Rick Perry (15%), the current frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.

    The result is seen as a further blow to Gov Perry, who struggled in the party television debate earlier this week.

    Massachusetts Gov Mitt Romney, who is seen as another top-tier candidate, finished third in the non-binding poll.

    Further back were former Senator Rick Santorum, Congressman Ron Paul, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov Jon Huntsman and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.
