Cain 'reassessing' 2012 campaign

(CNN) - Herman Cain told his staff Tuesday he is "reassessing" the viability of his campaign in the wake of a Georgia woman's allegations that she had a long extramarital affair with the Georgia businessman. One top campaign source tells CNN he expects a decision "within a few days" - based on whether fund-raising dries up.

Cain told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" Monday that her assertion was coming and would be false.

Do you think Herman Cain should drop out of the presidential race?
