A new Purple Strategies poll in New Hampshire shows Mitt leading for the 2016 GOP nomination, with 25%. He’s followed by Rand Paul at 18%, Chris Christie at 17% (that won’t last), and Jeb Bush at 13%.
I really can’t imagine that Mittens would try again. He didn’t even want to run again in 2012. But those results show how weak and uninspiring the Republican field is right now.
The 25% probably don’t know that Mitt already lost. They think the election is this November. Fox viewers of course.
I think of NH is one of the most politically savvy states. People are quite well informed on the issues.
So how do account for 25% still supporting Mittens?
Their way of saying others are too extreme. If I had to vote for one of them (if they were holding a gun to one of my pets’ heads), I’d much rather do Mittens than Rand or Cruz or Rubio. Mittens isn’t crazy or stupid, he’s just a clueless, coddled rich guy.
