WOW!

This had to hurt Rasmussen to put this poll up.

They are no fan of Mitt Romney.

This is a great poll after the debate, from listening to some anti-Romney people you would think that Bachman won the debate, but I saw what the majority saw and Gov. Romney was assuring, confident and articulate, but the main opinion that keeps repeating itself with many is that he looks Presidential, and I agree.....Evelio
