I said this only two days ago but I'll say it again. Mitt Romney is fast becoming as unelectable as Barry Goldwater, George McGovern, or David Duke. He's not merely imploding; he's disintegrating.
From the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll:
Among independents, Romney’s unfavorable rating now tops 50 percent — albeit by a single point — a first in Post-ABC polling back to 2006. Just two weeks ago, more independents had favorable than unfavorable views of Romney; now, it’s 2 to 1 negative....
Even "among his fellow Republicans, negative ratings have jumped from 18 to 32 percent." The even better news? Within his party Romney retains a 58 percent favorable rating -- which means they may yet salute him in Tampa.
Once all the stupefying splendor of Newt Gingrich has passed, the GOP faithful will shudder the confetti, they'll look around, broodingly, and they'll resume their ... ahem ... support of Willard Mitt Romney, that latte-drinking, biscotti-munching, wind-surfing, French-speaking caveman of the Caymans.
