Skip to comments.Romney gaining conservatives' support, if not their hearts
Posted on 04/22/2012 7:06:08 AM PDT by Innovative
Mitt Romney was not his first choice for president, but conservative political activist Scott Magill has come to accept that Romney is now his only choice. So Magill is looking for reasons to get jazzed about the candidate he once dismissed.
His list so far: Romney is a Republican who would sign into law legislation passed by a GOP-led House. Romney has started to hit the right talking points. If elected, Romney would have to listen to the conservative base - or risk its wrath at reelection time.
Also, and perhaps most important, Romney is not Barack Obama.
The conservative base appears to be warming to Romney, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted after Santorum's exit, which found that about 80 percent of conservative Republicans hold favorable views of Romney - a record percentage for the candidate.
Santorum's withdrawal from the field has opened the door for many groups that had been uncomfortable with his candidacy to embrace Romney, including the National Right to Life; the Susan B. Anthony List; National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex marriage.

Exactly what is the character of Mittens, and from where have you gained this insight? What I have seen is the true etch-a-sketch candidate. A man who has been on the wrong side of nearly every Conservative principle that I believe in BEFORE his miraculous conversation that happens to align with the beginning of his run for the Republican nomination in 2006.
He may be everything you say he is. I just don't know how anyone can believe a word the man says.
Newt’s record was of shameless self-promoter who pandered to your loathed-RINOs when he tried to play both sides. Theres no such thing as perfect conservative, and your attempt to paint Newt as some conservative savior is nonsense. The time is past for trying to find that non-existant candidate. Newt blew it with Bain Capital attack and Social Enginering!
If Newt loses it will only be because romney shills like you won’t support him. Shame on you if you honestly think romney can be obomba.
And before you claim that you are not a liberal just look at who you're supporting. Romney is no better than the liberal obomba.
I'm just sayin. ;-)
With Romney as the nominee the Republicans have become the Democrats. Romney is a liberal.
Newt LOST after Florida and is and was never in the game thereafter. His southern strategy went up in smoke and his polling is in single digits. If you still want to live in dreamland, go ahead until you wake up.
Obama is the enemy!
Thanks for your common sense support of trying to save this country from someone who has been trying to destroy this country more than any other President in history. Some people just don't give a crap about that and would just as well see this POS get "Four More Years".
Hey, W, 'Welcome to FR"! You haven't even been around here long enough to wet your diapers! (jan 2012)
I've been around here 12 years! Check me up before you start mouthing off and look like an idiot!
I imagine there’s more than a few 0bama trolls here having a good ol’ time trying to sow hate and discontent by telling us that there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Romney and 0bama. They say they will sit home on election day and encourage the rest of us to do same. Cheney has said we should get behind Romney. I believe it won’t be long before Rush and Palin say it too.
Hey... We can be friends. I know who you are and what you stand for. The beauty of America is we're all free to be whoever and whatever we want. I am a "Conservative" all the way to the marrow of my bones. I do not support or make exceptions for anything that isn't Conservative. As for diapers... LOL... Really?
Grow up. Some of us have worked a lifetime and haven't had the time to sit on our asses and post on message boards. I'm now semiretired and have a little time to spend online. Calling me names because your shilling is being exposed is so sophomoric it's not even funny.
The one that isn't named Obama.
“I imagine there’s more than a few 0bama trolls here having a good ol’ time trying to sow hate and discontent by telling us that there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Romney and 0bama. They say they will sit home on election day and encourage the rest of us to do same.”
BINGO!. You hit the nail on the head!
And many others may be sincere, but so naive that they can’t recognize communists when they see them... and because they don’t understand what communism really is — that Obama has started and will complete if he gets a second term and that it will destroy the USA, as we know it.
Those who stand by and watch, instead of doing the minimum of voting AGAINST it, will be responsible. But by the time they finally figure it out, it will be too late.
So many Obots on FR it’s disgusting. They are having a field day. They can promote Barry the Kenyan Marxist Soetoro under the guise of Hating Romney. FR is overrun with them and not a pleasant place to be right now. Mr. W, n00b is one of them.
I imagine theres more than a few 0bama trolls here having a good ol time
More than a few is an understatement. They have taken over FR.
Dittos. I WILL vote in November and it will be for whoever is left standing that has the BEST chance at beating that POS in the WH now.
LOL!! What a bunch of BS - and only those that can be deceived believe that and they know many HAVE BEEN deceived that's why they can say it.
Mitt’s con job is reality to you? Then you are truly a mittbot. The bottom of the barrel voter.
For some reason - I think NOT! Newt is in the race and I see you gave him no thought; therefore, no $upport.
