New Poll Finds The More People Learn About Romney, The More They Dislike Him
Talking Points Memo ^

Posted on 02/06/2012 2:12:12 PM PST by cotton1706

By a more than two to one margin, Americans say that the more they learn about Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, the more they dislike him, per a new Washington Post / ABC poll:

Overall, 55 percent of those who are closely following the campaign say they disapprove of what the GOP candidates have been saying. By better than 2 to 1, Americans say the more they learn about Romney, the less they like him. Even among Republicans, as many offer negative as positive assessments of him on this question. Judgments about former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who denounced Romney on Saturday night in Nevada, are about 3 to 1 negative.

Hopefully, this trend will continue and as Romney falls, Newt's appeal will rise. And more negative ads by Romney will just make him more unlikable.

Of course, this may be wishful thinking. I think the powers that be are doing everything they can to trap us with a worthless candidate. Maybe they'll entrap themselves with him instead and Newt will be able to take the convention.

He’s winning primaries and caucuses because he can outspend his opponents 20-1 and smear them. That won’t work in the general election against a singular opponent with a lot of money. We’re in for an epic landslide Obama win.

And a Barack Obama who doesn’t have to answer to the electorate anymore... lolz

You're only trapped if you let yourself be.

IF Romney is the nominee, you can always find an acceptable conservative candidate with the American Independent Party.

You can also vote for gridlock by doing all you can do to make sure the House and Senate are in GOP hands.

As for me, it'll be a cold day in Hell before I ever vote for Mitt "Liar" Romney.

We been ran down the river naked with whips at our backs for too long now........

Dole, Bush, McCain...and now Romney?

I'm frankly done. I've made decisions long ago now...to watch out for me, and mine. I don't care anymore about politicians that say that they are looking out for me.

I'm giving money to those I think are maybe helping...It's never money to the GOP. IMO....they are part of the problem. If not my enemy. Period.

I've a Senator here in OK....Tom Coburn, whom I respect, and think is a decent guy. But he thinks insider trading by House members isn't a problem???? Are you kidding me??

I'm so done with all of these guy's it ain't funny!!

Rant off!!

Please, please pray that when the time for the convention comes, that no one candidate has enough votes to take it on the first ballot - we don’t need a coronation and certainly not a coronation of a person who is patently the object for a tremendous series of smears and calumnies by the Democrats.

Obama has got NOTHING going into this election. No popular programs, no distingujishing acts of statesmanship, no evidence he even understands the duties and responsibilities of stewardship that is part and parcel of the office of the Presidency, and certainly no clue as to how economics really works. All he has is an agenda, for a system of governance that has failed in every nation and at every level in which it has been attempted. When the Chinese can lecture Obama on the virtues of economic prudence, it is clear that he has lost his way.

But damn, do they have just one hell of a war room, when it comes to political campaigns. Opposition research, disinformation, money-laundering schemes to conceal huge cash transfers, and a legion quick to do their bidding and present talking points.

Caesar would have been so proud.

There are three issues that need to be dealt with:

1. His religion. Sarah has said we need to vet. IMO there are questions about his faith that need to be talked about now. The American people should/will be asking questions. If the GOP don't start the conversation, you can bet that Axelrod will....He was a Bishop. His faith sees Grace different then most Protestants and the Catholic church.

2. His father had a relationship with Sal Alinsky. (Remember Newt mentioning the name.)He is currently using many of the techniques taught by Alinsky. Hillary was one of his followers. Obama taught classes and used his methods when he worked as a CO. Alinsky dedicated the book RULES FOR RADICALS to Lucifer...Enough said.

3. The Florida Fiasco must be settled now. Michael Steele on TV stated that the rule making April 1st the line for winner take all states. No exception was made for FL. The current President of the GOP wrote FL in Dec telling them they must distribute delegates proportionately.

Now the rules committee has two choices either have an emergency meeting of the rules committee now and save themselves the embarrassment of some very angry people a week before convention or PUSH Romney down the throat of the American people.....WE THE PEOPLE must speak up.

Not surprising.

Nobody likes Mitt. Even dogs don't like Mitt. PASS THIS ON:

DOGS AGAINST ROMNEY

DOGS AGAINST ROMNEY.COM

DOGS AGAINST ROMNEY

NOW ON FACEBOOK!
SEAMUS ROMNEY ON FACEBOOK BOL!


We all know the sad story of Seamus, the Romney family Irish Setter who was strapped to the top of the Romney station wagon for at least one 12-hour trip to Canada – and who at least once pooped himself in fear and, after being given an “emotion-free” hosing down by Mitt Romney, was placed once more atop the car for more terrifying hours on the highway.

The Romney family has said previously that Seamus was given away to Romney’s sister after this fateful trip, and lived out the last of his days on a lovely farm.  But now new questions emerge.

“....you can always find an acceptable conservative candidate with the American Independent Party.”

Like a third party could be a viable alternative.

News flash.

There ain’t one.

We have to go to war with the army we have, and not the army we want. To be sure, a lot of people whom claim to be Republican, are definitely anti-conservative, and are more than willing to expedite things for their very good friends “across the aisle”. The best we can do, is to mount a primary challenge to the questionable “RINOs” and try to remove them before they become a reliable vote for the Obama agenda. Failing that, we must resort to holding their feet to the fire, making them either so uncomfortable they resign (perhaps to face legal consequences), or otherwise they become compliant to their constituents and not to some distant “money interest” that is most likely funding their campaign for office in a manner altogether at odds with the existing law.

This is going to take a LOT of grassroots organization (which already has some semblance of framework in place), a lot of disappointment (we can’t possibly remove ALL the RINOs), and considerable investment of time, effort and money on the part of the motivated.

Make sure your personal protection is up to date. The Second Amendment is there for a reason.

To make sure we may enjoy the rest of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

This is true. Got a call from the RNC wanting money. I asked her what would be done with my contribution. She mumbled a few things, then very matter of fact, she actually said, “to help Mitt Romney beat Obama.”. That infuriated me, I then said I didn’t know Romney had already won the nomination and I would never give money to a liberal democrat like him. She then said, “he is a republican.”. I laughed and ended the call. I would think the other candidates would love to know that the RNC has already made up their mind and is actually fundraising for Romney.

I wish Newt would pick an interview and discuss his disdain for the Beltway mentality - his experience as an insider - why he resigned - the infighting and backstabbing - how he woke up. This is the conversation he needs to take to the general public - in a thoughtful, humble, sincere way. Not putting down any individuals, but collectively. Explaining the GOP mentality of going along to get along and not boldly standing firm against socialism.

We love underdogs and we are the underdogs - along with Newt. Newt is us.

Uh-huh! Talk is cheap, where are the numbers to support it?

A poll, regardless who conducts it, is only good for wrapping old fish in.

The REAL polls are in the primaries and in November. So far, the results belie the headline.

Let me add this article:



The only way Newt will lose to the Kenyan Turd is IF the "Establishment Republicans" REFUSE to support the Republican Nominee.
Now the "Republican Establishment's" hatred for conservatives is well known.
Jon Bershad wrote about Rush's analysis of their PANIC.


How many times has the "Republican Establishment" treated us to one lecture after the other on the need for “compromise” and “patience.”?
After we elect and RE-elect the "Republican Establishment", they conduct themselves with none of the confidence and enthusiasm with which they expressed themselves on the campaign trail.
It may be worth it for the GOP to lose some elections - if it means that conservatives—and the country—will ultimately win.

If we didn’t know it before, WE ... the Tea Partiers, now knows that accepting short-term loss in exchange for long-term gain is the essence of compromise, the essence of politics.

Ironically, we can thank the "Republican Establishment" for impressing this so indelibly upon us!!!
I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
"COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.

My dislike for the Democratic Party is second to none.
But my ... LOATHING ... for the "Establishment Republicans" ... is even stronger!
The "Establishment Republicans" can go to hell!

Points well taken. If we don’t vet him, Obama & Axelrod will destroy him if he gets the nomination, and it will be too late.

 The Mormon thing is the X Factor that might make Mitt unelectable. People’s personal religious beliefs are usually of no interest to most people, but having a President who swears a blood oath to the Mormon Church raises different questions, questions of allegiance. 
 I started out knowing little about Mormonism, and started researching. They are not just another Christian denomination- they really aren’t Christians at all- they believe that God is a flesh and blood human being, that there are many gods, and that Mormons can become gods. 
  Everything I’m learning about the Mormon Church is making me very wary of Romney as a candidate. The more people find out about it, they will never vote for him.
   One of the most disturbing is the Mormon practice of culling genealogy websites (the Mormons own all the major geneaology sites like ancestry.com, rootsweb.com etc which exist solely for that purpose) for names & family data, then baptizing 
them by proxy. 95% of the activity inside the Mormon temples is baptizing the dead. 
  This is the document brokered by Senator Orrin Hatch  between leaders of the UJA and the Mormon Church in which the Mormons agree to stop the despicable practice of baptizing holocaust victims by proxy. They signed it, but the practice continues.

http://www.avotaynu.com/mormons/MormonAgreement.pdf

  Romney admits that he participated in such rituals, but “not recently”. 

 I would just ask you all to do some research on Mormonism, and check out the voting results in the SC primary. In areas with large numbers of evangelicals, Romney lost 80% of the vote.

Mitt's 13000 plus negaive ads in FL were full of lies and smears. Mitt has to LIE to fool the people into voting for him. If more people knew the truth about Mitt he would be last in the delegate count.

The GOP-e, FOX and the rest of the MSM know that they have to help Mitt wrap it up soon or it's all over for Mitt.

Mitt knows he is lying when he speaks about being Conservative. You have to give Obama credit on one thing: Obama would never lie and pretend to run as a Conservative.

The clock is ticking for Mitt. I fully expect him to crack and make a fatal mistake before the end of March.

I was just looking at NRO. They've been big Romney boosters.

But today's lead article is titled Why Not Santorum?. And today's poll question asks, Who is the best alternative to Romney? and offers a choice between Gingrich and Santorum (Santorum's up 80 to 20) with no third option to stick with Mittens.

There are also several of hard-hitting pieces further down the page: Deroy Murdock's Newt’s Plan, Mitt’s Morass on the superiority of Newt's tax reform plan, Andrew C. McCarthy's See Mitt Pander on Mitt's inability to get conservatism, and Larry Kudlow's Message to Mitt: A rising tide lifts all boats on the value of supply-side philosophy. Then there's Jonah Goldberg's The Case for Romney: He'll owe us. Quite the subtitle, Jonah!

Might the GOP-E be wobbly on Romney?

Everyone knows TPM (Talking Points Memo) is a left-wing blog, and here they’re reporting on a MSM poll from two liberal news organizations, ABC News and the Washington Post, not of likely voters, but of general population adults, and lacking any internals for party ID (source: http://bit.ly/xPnG6K). And you’re all swallowing it whole as if you were regulars at Democratic Underground.

This is no surprise at all. I’ve mentioned this Weekly Standard article often. The author analyzed Romney’s campaigns and described the exact same thing happening in all of them. This is just one of many reasons many of us have been opposing his candidacy from the beginning.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2818702/posts

More evidence of voters’ coolness toward Romney came in a recent Public Policy study, which took snapshots from 13 states both early and late in 2011. In all 13 states, he became less popular as the year progressed. Even more telling were Romney’s negatives—which increased in tandem with his name recognition. As Romney began campaigning more actively, voters became less favorably disposed toward him.

Has there been any investigation of where Romney goes to church and what types of statements his pastor makes? I'm sure the Democrats will try to pull a Reverend Wright on him so we ought to do it first.

I haven’t read the articles, but I imagine some of Romney’s support has been from people who are social liberals but fiscal conservatives. Even people like me who are opposed to Romney have been a little surprised at how much he’s revealed himself to be a fiscal liberal on different issues lately that haven’t come up before. Of course it should have been obvious from Romneycare, his hundreds of millions in tax/fee hikes in Taxachusetts, his declining to support John Kasich’s anti-union vote, his support for letting taxes be higher on those making over $200K, etc. But Romney’s new comments about the safety net and the minimum wage might even be giving Romney’s fiscal conservative backers pause at this point. The money-worshiping wing of the Republican party just assume anyone wealthy is a fiscal conservative, I guess. But that defies reality, where we know wealthy elites backed Obama heavily and we have wealthy liberal politicians like John Corzine who are very similar to Romney. I suppose these pundits still think they can “hold his feet to the fire” and “drag” Romney to the right. I say a leopard can’t change his spots.

Tricia Erickson’s book “Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters?”, subtitle: Why An Indoctrinated Mormon Must Never Be Elected President of the United States) gives great insight.

Tricia, whose father was a Mormon Bishop (same rank as Romney), was brought up in Mormonism and exposed to many of the more secretive aspects of the Mormon Church.

This book gives Bishop Romney a thorough political vetting.

An email to Hannity/Greta or someone at CNN might be interested in starting the dialogue with We the People.

You might suggest that they interview Tricia Ericson and ask her questions about the book.....They could always give Romney equal time to answer questions about his religios background.....Seems fair and balanced to me.

Romney is a stooge. Against the Obama Media machine, he will look like the idiot he is. Obama has hundreds of millions to spend on the election, he has the Bully Pulpit, free advertising from the daily talk shows on TV, “news” reports, etc. And they have Hollywood writers and directors on staff to plan his Public Relations campaign.

Romney will be outclassed and outgunned, 100 to 1. Romney cannot win against Obama. His lack of personality and genuine personal appeal will prove me right next November.

The More People Learn About Romney, The More They Dislike Him

Well, of course... All you have to do is tell (normal, decent, working, taxpaying) people that Mittens is a self-proclaimed "moderate and progressive" who "doesn't want to go back to Reagan and Bush". Who is going to like him besides the bums, deadbeats, and parasites who comprise the Democrat party base?

“Oh, I’m not voting for Romney either way.”

Neither will I. But really, it doesn’t matter one way or the other, because I live in Illinois, and even if I voted for the doofus it wouldn’t make any difference, because the Obastard is going to carry Illinois in a landslide.
