From Newsmax:

Mitt Romney would have to turn in the best performance of any modern presidential candidate between now and the general election in November to beat President Barack Obama, according to an analysis by The Daily Beast.

The former Massachusetts governor’s favorable ratings among potential voters are the worst of any likely presidential nominee in the past 36 years, the Beast reported Monday, citing a breakdown of at least 20 polls showing an extreme lack of enthusiasm for the Romney campaign.

“Since 1976, no serious contender, Democrat or Republican, has watched his favorable ratings fall as low as Romney’s have in recent months. Or watched his unfavorable ratings climb as high. Or watched his overall numbers stay underwater — that is, more unfavorable than favorable — for so long,” the Beast reported.

“At this rate, Romney is shaping up to be the most unpopular [likely] presidential nominee on record.”

And this is the guy the RINO establishment in the GOP has been trying to ram down our throats as “the only one who can beat Obama”?

What a bad joke! If Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney is handed the nomination by people who don’t know better or don’t care what a liberal he is, you can virtually guarantee another four years of Barack Obama. And you’ll have the liberal establishment in the “Republican” Party to thank for the ongoing damage to our republic.
