This just in from CNN… There is a lot of polling that is showing a large segment of Republicans do not trust Romney.. From October 21, here is what CNN found out….

  • Romney’s economic plan has 59 points. Cain’s had 3.
  • Many Republican voters don’t like him, trust him or relate to him. It’s the same thing that plagued the former Massachusetts governor in the 2008 election.
  • It’s not that he is not conservative; it is that they don’t think he’s sufficiently anything.
  • Romney’s character in the debates was accused — by one after another — of being inconsistent, dishonest and untrustworthy.
  • Romney deceptively “mixes apples and oranges”
  • Accusation that opponents direct at Romney? — that he misleads.
  • Romney is accused of “huffing and puffing” over very little tiny things or over things he frequently does himself…
  • Republicans feel “”It’s time for you to tell the truth, Mitt.” One Republican ad against him, called him … “Mitt-leading.”
  • Gingrich: Romney needs taught a lesson: Don’t exaggerate the facts.
  • Republicans are fed up with his tendency to shade the truth. Romney excels at it.
  • Look at the Las Vegas debate again and read the body language. It’s clear that Romney’s opponents would not buy a used car from this man. CNN
  • Romney tries to look presidential; the message sent by some of his opponents this week was simple and direct: buyer beware.
  • Romney is the worst kind of politician, the kind who will say anything and pretend to be anything to get elected.(Remember, this is the same view held by many Republicans, from conservative radio talk show hosts to members of the tea party, of the current occupant of the White House)
  • His net worth is over $200 million from his multitude of investments. If elected he’d be the richest president in history.
  • His wealth is scattered in so many different bank accounts scattered around the globe in places like Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.
  • His five sons have a trust fund worth over $100 million. The Romney family has paid no taxes on that $100 million – not one cent in gift or estate taxes – for the past decade by taking advantage of loopholes.
  • His old company, Bain Capital, is known on Wall Street for perfecting the art of the “leveraged buyout..
  • Under Bain’s stewardship, companies like American Pad and Paper, GS Industries, Dade international closed plants and let go hundreds of the worker. Bain investors made hundreds of millions from these deals.
  • When Romney was governor, Massachusetts ranked 47th out of 50 states in terms of job creation.
  • Romney personifies an unattractive side of the elite 1%. In short, they are able to avoid tax rates that apply to the 99%.
  • The richest 400 Americans have more money than the bottom 150 million… combined. That means the top 1% controls 25% of the total income in this county.
  • Romney’s continued insensitivity on issues of wealth and privilege contribute to an image of an out-of-touch plutocrat who is insensitive to the economic pain being felt by the average American.
  • His dubious claim that he knows what it is like to be unemployed.
  • “I don’t trust Romney. He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda. It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama,” said Barbara Doherty,..
  • So according to CNN, and Fox News, these are most of the reasons why Republicans don’t trust Romney….
  • It is surprising that they still hold true.

So why is he the contender and neck and neck in the polls? Simple… The $1 billion in dark money has no other candidate with which to stop Obama….Obama will do aways with the Bush Tax Cuts and $1 billion of dark money doesn’t like that. The true real deep down dark contest is between $1 billion dollars of dark money and Obama… not Romney versus Obama….
