In his only election victory he got 49% of the vote.
He didn't run for relection, even though he was still legally eligable. Why not? Because he would have lost--badly. After four years as governor, he was polling under 30%.
In the 2008 GOP primaries Mitt Romney only pulled in 22% of the vote. This cycle, despite having huge monetary and organizational advantages, Romney still can't break out of the 20% range.
- Never gained more than 49% of the vote in any race.
- Failed to get reelected as governor.
- Got a mere 22% of the vote against...John McCain.
- Only has about 20% of the vote in the current GOP race.
What about Romney's policial record says "electable, safe choice, guranteed winner"?
