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"?
