Everybody Hates Romney

A quick follow up on my prior post on Huckabee's WV primary. My friend Jim thinks that Huckabee supporters flock to McCain because they draw from Reagan Democrats who are socially conservative and fiscal liberals. I think that's plausible, though I also thought they'd be more inclined to support Romney because of McCain's perceived apostasy on social conservatism.

But the other alternative that's been bubbling up is that Mitt Romney is really, really loathed by a big chunk of Republican voters. He just rubs folks the wrong way. And even if they don't trust McCain, their hatred of Romney burns hot and true.
