If you asked them why they think Romney’s more “electable” what do they say? Hopefully it’s not the polls since Kerry was ahead by Bush all year up to at least 4 months before election day when he was ahead by 7 points.
IMO, Newt won SC in part because of the anti-Bain ads. Even though voters may have disagreed with the attacks, found them anti-capitalist or whatever, it showed them what Romney will be facing in the Fall that will make him unelectable against Obama. Because Newt won by so much in SC those Bain ads weren’t decisive, but they could have made the different in FL precisely because they showed what Mitt’s glass jaw would be in the fall. Newt will not win the primary if he doesn’t go back to attacking Romney’s business career, albeit preferably with sharper, more defined attacks.
Oh you know, it’s the standard he looks and sounds “Preidential”, and of course, the polls.
