Republicans Not Convinced Romney Can Win

Politico reports that "under the table, there is pervasive pessimism among Republicans about Romney's prospects this fall. It's apparent in rampant discussions about which Republicans will run in 2016 -- talk that obviously presupposes a loss in November -- and it's downright glaring in private conversations with GOP officials on Capitol Hill and in consulting shops across Washington."

"And the skepticism about Romney isn't just a Beltway phenomenon. Rank-and-file Republican voters are also uncertain he can win, though it's the chattering class that is most bearish."

However, a National Journal Political Insiders poll finds 65% of insiders "very excited" about Romney as the GOP nominee while 30% are "somewhat excited."
