Who needs a poll to conclude this obviousitude? Via Taegan:
Public Policy Polling finds that over the last two years the “leading quartet” of Republicans running for president have all become more unpopular. Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich have all seen their favorability spread fall by margins ranging from 15 to 23 points.
Much has been written about the weakness of the 2012 Republican Presidential candidate field but what I think might be most remarkable about the leading quartet of Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich is that they’ve all become more unpopular and by quite a good bit since we started monthly national 2012 polling in April of 2009. The fact that the more Americans are exposed to them, the less they like them certainly does not bode well for their competitiveness next year.
I love that sentence. I need to repeat it: “The more Americans are exposed to them, the less they like them… certainly does not bode well for their competitiveness next year.”
Kind of like being exposed to chicken pox.
All Republicans have to do is open their mouths. The more voters hear their mean-spirited, illogical messages, and the more they realize that they have no solutions, the lower the approval ratings go.
