Mitt Romney in a speech in Michigan today:
His willingness to cozy up to the most deranged elements of the GOP base seemingly knows little bounds.
The campaign always stages the people behind the candidate to score points with voter groups, and I appreciate the desire of the campaign to showcase Catholic nuns. Romney is really working hard to poll better with Catholics than McCain did in 2008. In a July 2012 poll by the Pew Research Center, Obama led Romney 51% to 42% among Catholics generally. In 2008, the Catholic vote went for Obama 54% to 45%.
