Public Policy Polling has Mitt Romney dropping from over fifty percent, when originally polled against Huckabee and Palin, to thirty one per cent when Gingrich and Ron Paul's names were added to the poll, down to twenty one percent in their latest poll.
"...in later polls the anti-Palin sentiment was diffused across several candidates and Romney's mile wide but inch deep support declined further and further and further to where it is now."
Mile wide and an inch deep? Mitt has many things to like about him, but his baggage outweighs them all. RomneyCare, in Massachusetts (as I noted here) is one of the most expensive in the country, did not realize savings from decreased ER usage, and is heavily dependent on bailouts form the federal government to keep it solvent.
ObamaCare, which is strikingly similar to RomneyCare, has no Uncle Sugar to bail it out. It is doomed to failure. Romney simply hasn't the credentials to wipe out whatever vestiges there are of Obama care when 2012 rolls around.
