One of the more important things to know in politics is that when people are paying very little attention to what’s going on, they have a habit of picking the name they know best as their favourite. The sad truth is they do this because they don’t want to seem like they are clueless because there is a good chance they are.
Yes, it’s called name recognition.
So, a new CBS poll says that 59% of Republicans say they’d like to see Mitt Romney run for the White House again in 2016. 26% say he shouldn’t try again.
When the dust settles and people start paying attention and remembering that Mitt Romney is, well, Mitt Romney, those numbers go south fast.
Meanwhile the media is having fun with this man bites dog story.
Sorry Mitt, the job is not yours and no amount of your money can buy it for you.
