Mitt: The Anti-Obama

Poll shows California’s Romney supporters
are motivated by opposition to Obama more than enthusiasm for their own candidate. Video

The new USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences/Los Angeles Times Poll shows that a majority of California voters who plan to support Mitt Romney in November’s presidential election consider their decision to be a vote against President Barack Obama, rather than one on behalf of Romney.

Of those who say they will vote for Romney, 51 percent characterize their choice as a vote against Obama rather than a vote for Romney; this signals a lack of enthusiasm for the former Massachusetts governor among California’s Republican voters. Forty-four percent of Romney supporters say their vote is a vote for Romney, as opposed to one against Obama.
