• Mitt Romney, the "Good Enough" Candidate of 2012

    "You know, that Matt Rommy guy, he seems not totally bad. I can kind of imagine myself voting for him if I decided to stop off at the polling place on the way back from KFC. Well, unless I'm too drunk." — Typical Mitt Romney voter this fall

    Mitt Romney is the now the only candidate that a majority of conservative and moderate/liberal Republicans nationwide see as an "acceptable" GOP nominee for president. Conservative Republicans are more likely to say Romney would be an acceptable nominee than either Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum…

    Fifty-nine percent of all Republicans nationwide perceive that Romney is an acceptable GOP nominee for president, the only candidate with majority support on this measure. Slightly less than half say Gingrich (46%) or Santorum (45%) would be acceptable, while a majority of Republicans say that the three remaining candidates — Perry, Paul, and Huntsman — would be unacceptable as their party's nominee.
