Romney's Conservative Problem


Mitt Romney's been looking weaker and weaker in our 2012 Presidential polling over the last couple months and it's pretty easy to identify the reason why: he has a major problem with conservatives and there's no evidence it's getting any better.

We've polled eight states, not including Massachusetts, since the 2010 election ended. Romney has the lowest favorability rating of the Republican top 4 with conservatives in every single one of those states except Michigan, where he probably benefits from his dad having been the Governor. And it's not like Romney is just slightly less well liked than the others with conservatives- it's a large gap, particularly when you compare him with Palin or Huckabee. Romney's average favorability is 58%. Gingrich is next worst at 64%, followed by Huckabee at 73%, and Palin does best at 77%.

Here's the data on favorability with conservatives:

"Romneycare" was always going to cost him but it's surprising that Huckabee & Gingrich outscored him; anyways, Palin will be our biggest adversary since there'll be enough idiots voting for her because "she's hot","she's a woman" & what not but Paul CAN make it if we can go in hard early on.

BTW, here's something I've found on DailyPaul - http://www.dailypaul.com/node/129420
If we can put up an ad during primetime television with select clips of Paul WITH RESPECTIVE DATES when he'd said those things, like him anticipating 9/11-like event in 1998 ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5lcF-_WEAc & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvlUx5ECD2w ), him predicting the housing-crisis & economic collapse; his clips from 80s & after talking about how Fed & bankers & corporates control both parties, him talking about price of gold soaring & uselessness of paper-money & its inflationary nature, etc etc needs to be compressed into short advertisements; it'd go a long way in making the Sheeple want to research Ron Paul & none of this would require "professional" ad managers & cost/benefit-ratio might be pretty good too. Has anyone given something like this some consideration?

I have done my best over the past few years to expose this RINO. This project was initially done for a bunch of relatives that thought the world of Romney. Now, I make it a point to post all the damage Romney has done to this country over the past 25 years.

THE WORD IS GETTING OUT! Mr BAIN CAPITAL, MR LIBERAL, MR WARMONGER, MR WHISPER, MR CRONE CORPORATIST, MR MARXISM, MR ROMNEYCARE, MR. etc etc etc... the list goes on and on! Keep plugging away to knock this ESTABLISHMENT hack out.

The question should be how this effects Dr. Paul. Ron Paul played strongest in many of the states where Romney was pretty strong- Maine, Nevada, Montana, and Alaska jump out at me. Although Iowa is the state we have to do strong in first, these states will all be important as well if we are looking to build off of past strength.
