Gallup: Romney stirs less enthusiasm than McCain

in Uncategorized by

A new Gallup Poll finds just 35% of Republicans say they would vote “enthusiastically” for Mitt Romney if he wins the GOP nomination — “similar to Republicans’ feelings about voting for Romney in early 2008, but lower than the enthusiasm level for that year’s eventual GOP nominee, John McCain.”

Just 34% were enthusiastic about voting for Rick Santorum and only 28% were enthusiastic for Newt Gingrich.

“Republicans are also less enthusiastic about voting for their party’s current pool of candidates than Democrats were about voting for their potential nominees in both 2008 and in 2004.”
