Mitt won by a large margin tonight in the Florida primary. According to exit polls done by CNN, he won virtually every demographic with the exception of "very conservative" and "strong tea party support". No surprises there, I also don't believe he is even attempting to grab those demographics, at least not in a serious way. It is no secret, I don't like Mitt Romney. I don't believe that he has true core convictions. Even if he had true moderate Republican stances that he admitted to I could respect him more. But, I do think he loves this country for it's rich heritage and has no desire for us to become another quasi-socialist nation like other European nations. Does he believe in big government solutions to problems? No doubt in my mind he will not shrink the size and scope of the federal government, but he will not be driving at warp speed to change how our economy works. I still won't vote for him, but I will give him that. I did think this was a good speech. I especially appreciated that he stuck his comments to what he would do and how to beat Obama.
