You don’t need to be a political pundit to see that Republicans don’t like Mitt Romney.
Just about every other Republican contender has, for at least a few weeks, challenged Romney’s frontrunner status. Republican voters seem to want to find any alternative to this polished (too polished?) and articulate (as long as he’s debating and not responding to a media query) candidate. Voters are leery of his inconsistent positions on important issues. CNN political analyst David Gergen observed in an article in Parade magazine that Americans feel as if they don’t really know the candidate. He seems inauthentic and therefore not trustworthy.
