What’s most noteworthy in the Pew Poll chart above is the precipitous decline in support for Mitt Romney among independent voters in a hypothetical matchup with President Obama.
In just one month, Mittens has lost eight percentage points among independents, while Obama has gained 11 points.
Romney presumably will lose even more ground among independents if he further sucks up to fringe elements of the Republican Party in his effort to stave off Rick Santorum.
The moral of this whole story is that the Tea Party wackos have painted the GOP into a corner.
Don’t ya love it?
