As my co-blogger Dennis has reported, Mitt Romney may become the first person to win the presidency while losing all three of his supposed home states. Muddying this attempt at history is the fact that voters in at least two of Romney's home states refuse to acknowledge him as one of their own…
Massachusetts voters don't even really regard Romney as one of their own despite his time as Governor — only 25% say they consider him to be a Bay Stater, while 65% say they do not. There doesn't seem to be a state that wants to lay claim to Romney — when we polled Michigan last month, only 24% of voters said they considered him to be one of their own to 65% who said they did not.
If California rejects him, Romney will be homeless, despite his many houses.
Luckily for him, if worst comes to worst, his money will be waiting for him at the "shelter."
