Super Tuesday couldn’t come any sooner for the Republican Party

1 post / 0 new

With 419 delegates in 11 states up for grabs – a clear picture may emerge tonight of who the Republican nominee will be – most likely Mitt Romney - who is expected to take the majority of delegates and easily win 4 primaries – and should pull off a win in the swing state of Ohio, too. Looking at numbers from a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll – Republicans desperately need this primary season to end as soon as possible. Of those polled, 40% say the primary process has created a less favorable view of the Republican Party – and Mitt Romney’s favorable rating stands at just 28% now.

Meanwhile in hypothetical contests with the Republican candidates – President Obama is polling above 50%, forecasting a landslide victory. And to top it all off – by a margin of 46% to 41% - Americans want Democrats more than Republicans to control Congress next year. The Republicans were given a chance to govern the nation in 2010 – and they squandered it by appealing to the lowest common denominators within their party – only looking out for misogynists, millionaires, and billionaires – and putting the destruction of Barack Obama ahead of fixing the economy.

So even though Super Tuesday is here and the primary season may soon be winding down – it will take a lot of fat-cat corporate cash to rehabilitate the Republican Party’s image heading into the general election.
