It's also worth pointing out that Starbuck is hardly a good judge of character, so relying on her word that the fleet was 'less safe' with Cain gone doesn't hold much water.
I could be wrong, but didn't Starbuck also have a personal stake in trusting Cain, namely that Cain was planning to take the fleet back to Caprica to rescue Anders and the resistance fighters?

It's not like Starbuck was looking at Cain objectively.
Exactly. Adama had just denied Starbuck's request to return to Caprica and Starbuck was desperate to find a way back. Cain was her only option (or so Starbuck thought at the time.) Additionally, Starbuck very clearly admired Cain's clarity of purpose, even if that purpose was totally heinous, because Starbuck herself was so often conflicted and unable to focus her actions.
