oh mitt….

TPM: Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty … have something in common: According to new surveys from Public Policy Polling, they would both lose their respective home states to President Obama by serious margins – though as the new numbers from Massachusetts show, it’s much worse in Romney’s case.

In the new Massachusetts survey, Obama leads Romney by a landslide margin of 57%-37% – wider than the 51%-43% margin that Obama has over Pawlenty in Minnesota, and comparable to Obama’s 56%-35% lead over the other likely Minnesotan candidate, Michele Bachmann, in that state.

As it turns out, Romney is actually the strongest Republican candidate in Massachusetts. Obama leads Herman Cain by 60%-27%, leads Newt Gingrich by 63%-27%, leads Sarah Palin by 63%-27%, and leads Pawlenty by 59%-28%.

….PPP’s Tom Jensen writes: “I’m sure no one was in a lot of suspense about whether Obama would win Massachusetts next year. The bigger question is if an Obama win by 20 points against Romney…or by 30 points or more against someone else…will be enough to carry Scott Brown’s eventual Democratic challenger over the top.”

    I really hope that Scott Brown loses his seat and it goes back to Democatic hands – a real Democrat, though.

      I was reading today that PBO’s popularity in Mass could hurt our dear Scott Brownie. I think this guy is dumb. I mean like in IQ.

        I’m with you, Dorothy. I don’t think Beown is too bright. He only won because Coakley was a terrible and complacent candidate.

          And maybe the nude photo spread? I really like the look that President Obama gave him at the WHCD last year when he mentioned that Scott Brown is one of those politicians with nothing to hide… It was a look of “I’ve seen what you have to offer”…

          I think Rachel is going to be after Scott Brown next year, too, because he tried to use her as a fundraising tool, and wouldn’t’ back down. This should be fun!

        Blunt and true. I also get the feeling he’s not too bright. Not too much going on behind the eyes. He’s so dull, too. Such a downgrade from the dynamic Teddy Kennedy.

    The repugs might have to create a couple of more States of the Union if they plan on having a chance. I have no pity, show no mercy! We need to help POTUS Barack Obama CRUSH THEM! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012. I’M FIRED UP AND I’M IN!

    Is it just me or does anyone else wish that Mittenkins would just shut up and disappear and take Blah Blahlenty with him? 😕

    Let’s see if we hear anything about this from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC. I think not.

    ‘Oh Mitt’ is about all there is to say.

    We in Mass have no time for these two liars. Till this day, I still find it hard to say or name scottie as my senator. We though have to work hard to kick him to the curb. But with Potus on the ticket, its more likely that we shall take the seat back.

      So far I haven’t heard anything from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC about this. I wonder why that is. Could it be it is good news for Obama.
