A new Gallup poll is confirming what we’ve all known since Willard announced his intentions to run for president last year – that Republican voters just don’t like the Romney, and when compared to John McCain’s campaign in 2008, enthusiasm for Mitt Romney is almost nonexistent.
A little more than one-third of Republicans say they would vote “enthusiastically” for either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum if either candidate were to win their party’s nomination for president. Slightly fewer say they would vote enthusiastically for Newt Gingrich. This level of enthusiasm is similar to Republicans’ feelings about voting for Romney in early 2008, but lower than the enthusiasm level for that year’s eventual GOP nominee, John McCain.
But Mittens is not concerned. In a recent Fox News interview, Romney predicted that Republicans would just fall in line and support his candidacy.
“Some who are very conservative may not yet be in my camp, but they will be when I become the nominee, when I confront Barack Obama,” he said.
