What’s Historic About Mitt Romney? His Unpopularity


It’s not just you.

Here’s something Republicans don’t want you to know: “Romney Support Historically Low for Winning Candidate.” But that’s what Gallup revealed when Rick Santorum dropped out of the GOP primary on Tuesday.

At 42% support, Mitt Romney is far and away the least popular Republican presidential nominee since the primaries were revamped to more accurately reflect public opinion in 1972.

Whether he can generate popular support in the fall remains to be seen, of course. By holding off on releasing his tax returns, again — a move that almost cost him the GOP nomination — he’s proving that he isn’t getting any better at politics.

All Mitt has going for him in millions in anonymous donations curated by Karl Rove, a popular adviser on women’s issues and an unprecedented willingness to lie about everything, all the time.
