“Romney did not win every question, but he did present himself as the front-runner in the nature of Walter Mondale. Steady and gray. Some may sprint ahead, but slow and steady can win this primary race.”
Just a reminder:
Ronald Reagan (Republican): 54 and a half million votes, won all 50 states except Minnesota (where Walter Mondale was from) and Washington DC (which has always voted Democrat since the constitution was amended to allow the federal capital to vote in 1964).
Walter Mondale (Democrat): 37 and a half million votes, barely held his own state by 3,761 votes (which would be small in a British parliamentary election) or 1,036,364 to 1,032,603 votes.
If I were Mitt Romney, I wouldn’t want too many comparisons with Walter Mondale, least of all approving ones.
