Nothing New to Romney Supporters ran an article today on the vulnerability of John McCain. I mean look at this guy, would you vote for him? Obviously looks have nothing to do with it. But McCain has some major hurdles in front of him.

A USA Today/Gallup poll in late June found that overall, 56 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the Arizona senator, while 25 percent have an unfavorable opinion and 19 percent have no opinion.

However, only a slightly higher percentage of Republicans, 59 percent, rate him favorably. By comparison, while President Bush has only a 40 percent favorable rating overall, 86 percent of Republicans rate him favorably, and 75 percent of Democrats rate Hillary Clinton favorably.

Why isn't McCain the darling of the Republican party? Read a little further.

Among the reasons respondents cited for disliking the likely presidential candidate, according to Gallup, are "Wishy-washy/Needs to take a stance,” "Don’t agree with his views/positions,” "Doesn’t have true Republican views or values,” and "Too liberal.”

That's the kind of polling McCain doesn't want to see.
