Mitt Smashes Through Supposed “25% Ceiling”; AND Lead Plaintiff for 26 State Suit Against ObamaCare, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi Endorses Mitt Romney

Can you feel the Mitt-Mentum building folks? It’s nearly palpable! Thus, it has been with great pleasure that many of us long-term Romney supporters have watched Mitt smash through the supposed “25% Ceiling” of support that his opponents and Democratic talking-heads have fabricated. We’ve heard many of his GOP opponents and those on the left stating that Romney is a “weak frontrunner” because he rarely polled above 25%. I’ve heard literally hundreds of comment on news programs that “over 75% of the GOP want someone different than Mitt Romney as their nominee.” A couple of problems with that argument:

1) No one else was higher than Romney (rare temporary “flavor of the month” candidates briefly popped into the 30s being the only exceptions) and so if 75% don’t want Romney, then 85% don’t want Gingrich, 90% don’t want Paul, 95% don’t want Perry, and 99% don’t want Huntsman.

2) Romney is now consistently polling above his supposed ceiling, with the most recent Gallup Tracking Poll taking Mitt to 31% and well on his way to 35% plus once he wins New Hampshire.


*************Sick of hearing that Mitt’s involvement with RomneyCare will make him unable to criticize ObamaCare as the nominee?  I’ve argued before on this site that the converse is actually true, that Romney would be the best nominee the GOP has to take it to Obama on the issue of Health Care.


Mitt just added a whole new level of credibility to this argument by earning the endorsement of Pam Bondi, Florida Attorney General, and the lead AG for the 26 state lawsuit heading to the Supreme Court to test the constitutionality of ObamaCare.  Something tells me that she would not be giving this endorsement without a full confidence that Mitt will do as he’s said, and grant immediate waivers to ObamaCare and then work to repeal the law itself through congressional action.

The Morning Joe crew makes the observation that Gov. Romney is the most disciplined candidate in the field below the fold.

  1. Robin for Mitt says:

    This is great news. Thank you for your positive take on the effect that Newt’s new movie will not have on the Romney campaign. Still Newt is doing a real disservice to the Republican Party and I hope he is severely chastised for it. He’s really not very smart after all.

  2. Jeff Fuller says:

    Newt’s brain is big, but is ego is bigger and often trumps his brain. This is a case-in-point of that for Newt.

  3. Vic Lundquist says:

    Jeff, thanks for the back-story on Florida AG, Pam Bondi. Fortunately most voters in America today are smart and they have access to the new media, like MRC and will study the truth..

    @Vic, I talked to a number while calling in SC a few weeks ago…….older people…….that get all of their news from the TV. I’m so grateful I don’t have to depend on that!! Thank goodness for the internet!

    Gingrich acts like a shill for Obama/Dems. They must be laughing and thanking him for giving them a headstart! But….on the other hand, maybe it’s just what Mitt needs for the General!

  5. Sean says:

    Newt was on Hannity’s radio program this afternoon talking about the “25% ceiling%. Hey Newt have you looked at any national polls recently or even South Carolina primary polls?
