Herman Cain is expected to announce today where his Republican presidential campaign goes from here but a new poll shows a majority of Americans think he should end his White House pursuit now.

cain poll most say goAmid allegations of sexual harassment by a group of women against Cain and one allegation of having carried on an extramarital affair with another woman, Cain has said he is reassessing his campaign and is due to make an announcement today in Atlanta.

Cain spoke with his wife and other family members yesterday about what he should do but he said he would not make any public announcement until today about his decision.

He has maintained that he is more concerned about the impact of the allegations on his family than on his campaign.

According to the new Rasmussen Reports survey of would-be voters, 51 percent believe he should end his campaign, 28 percent disagree that he should end the campaign and 21 percent are not sure.

Cain is expected to speak at what was billed as the opening of a new campaign headquarters in Georgia and he has said he will tell supporters what is coming next.

There has been speculation among political insiders that he could suspend his campaign due to financial issues which are also affecting his campaign but there is no denying the impact the allegations are having on his efforts.

Cain has taken a precipitous slide in recent polls. Only weeks ago he was at the top of the GOP heap but fellow candidate Newt Gingrich has passed Cain after a long climb from near the bottom.

This week the former House Speaker boldy told ABC News he will be the nominee.

At a campaign stop in New Hampshire today, GOP White House candidate Mitt Romney said he does not know what Cain supporters would do if their candidate drops out of the race but the former Massachusetts governor added he hopes that if Cain does drop out, his supporters take a close look at his campaign and join his efforts to land the nomination.
