The election is still razorishly close and, more to the point, it’s still five months away, more than enough time for people to get to know Willard Romney enough to despise him. The Republican base still thinks he’s a cult leader. Otherwise, he’s got more advantages than any non-incumbent presidential candidate has had since Jimmy Carter rolled up Gerald Ford, and he still can’t break free. I swear, if I were a Romney advisor, I’d sell Mark Halperin some magic beans at a substantially inflated price.
Mark Halperin buys the beans, Politico plants them.
