    If that is the case, that is really really sad that all the GOP can come up with is him and that the best the Dems can come up with is Hillary. I weep for the future.

    Yeah, Fox News and its pols predicted Mittens would win that election in '12 too. Funny how that ended.

    Actually Chris Christie did America a huge favor. Remember how everyone wanted Chris to run...then they had to settle for Mitt. With Chris not running and Mitt losing, makes Mitt ineligible[as seen by the GOP money people] for another run. Money is never gonna back a loser.

    Not hoping Mittens runs again. I would love to see the GOP turn an even harder right and give it to Rand Paul. Lots of people today were not even around in 1964 to see what happens when the GOP goes hard right and its about time to learn that lesson refresh some memories.

    I never wanted Christie to run for POTUS in 2012. Who is this "everyone" you speak of?

    Gallup also predicted Romney would win in 2012.

    Mitt Romney is a fine man and would have been an excellent President. A loss for the country. He is/was perhaps the most qualified person in my lifetime to put himself forward for the nomination of either party. Unfortunately, while fighting for the Republican nomination he and his campaign sat by idly while Obama and the Democrats, with their media enablers, created a totally false identity of the man which he was unable to shake.

    That said, Romney's time has passed and it would be foolish for him to spend time and money running a third time. Perhaps, in a Jeb Bush administration, there will be a senior secretary role for Romney if he still wishes to serve his country even more than he already has.

    The GOP bias was strong that year. Nate Silver nailed it though---he picked every state correctly.
