Mitt's hits and misses

The good news for Mitt Romney that he, with John McCain, remains in the thick of the GOP presidential race.

But there's bad news, too.

Republicans don't like him.

Here's how the NYT today discounts his candidacy:

Mitt Romney’s shape-shifting rivals that of Mr. Giuliani. It is hard to find an issue on which he has not repositioned himself to the right since he was governor of Massachusetts. It is impossible to figure out where he stands or where he would lead the country.

And David S. Bernstein says that some Dems in Massachusetts might be crossing over to vote against Romney in the Bay State primary:

In Massachusetts’s semi-open primaries, unenrolled voters may vote in the Republican primary, but registered Democrats may not, and — sources speculate — many Massachusetts Democrats want to actively help stop Mitt Romney’s presidential dreams by voting against him in his home state.

These Democrats, and many people already unenrolled and eligible to vote in either primary, would probably be happy with any of the top Democratic candidates. So they may leave that decision to others, while taking one last opportunity to vote against their former governor.
