I don't buy it. I think the majority are just resigned to what the Establishemnt has forced upon us. The establishment has been pushing Romney since day one. Screw them! The GOP is never going to get another dime of my money! NEVER!
The GOP rank and file gave Romney the votes he needed to win the nomination. That's a fact.
I know there's no process for it, but what would have helped would have been a "conservative primary" that would have allowed us to coalesce around a single anti-Romney candidate.
Perhaps we'll learn the lesson the next time around and create the process that will identify the conservative champion before the GOP primary gets underway.
