Former presidential candidate Herman Cain told The Daily Caller that he doesn’t know why former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is still in the Republican presidential race and doesn’t “know what’s going on in his head.”

“Everybody knows that Speaker Gingrich is not going to get the nomination, probably,” Cain explained. “It would have to take an absolute long-shot mix-up of everything that would happen at the convention. I don’t know what’s going on in his head, so I can’t comment.” (RELATED: Full coverage of the Gingrich campaign)

“I know that when I had to make the decision to drop out of the race, it was more difficult than making the decision to get in the race,” he continued.

Cain, who held a rally in Washington, D.C. Monday, said that he thinks the GOP drew more African-American voters in the 2008 presidential race than exit polls showed, and he expects that African-Americans will again support the Republican nominee.

“Democrats like to claim that Obama got over 95 percent of the [black] vote in the last election. I know some black people that when they went to vote and you walk outside of your precinct in a black neighborhood and somebody asks you, ‘who did you vote for?’ with a tablet — do you think they gonna always say that they voted for the Republican candidate?”

“No, I don’t believe those, and I think we’re going to see a different result, so don’t believe those exit polls,” he said.
