Why do more Americans put Mitt Romney on the “nice” list*?

Are they having second thoughts about the election? According “to a lighthearted new survey released Monday by Public Policy Polling (PPP)“:

More Americans put Romney than Obama on Kris Kringle’s “nice” list: 63 percent said the former Massachusetts governor would get presents, versus just 51 percent for the president, PPP found.

Mr. Obama won just under 51% of the vote last month.

Assuming all those who voted for Mr. Romney put him on the “nice” list, then over one-quarter of those who voted for Mr. Obama also would put the Republican on the list.

*than those who put the incumbent there.



  1. Silly Dan! They are not having second thoughts about the voting booth selection.

    As V the K has said, Mitt Romney was a good, decent, and honorable man. But Mitt Romney wasn’t Santa Claus.

    The current & future occupant of the White House was Santa Claus. People like Santa Claus. People like free stuff. People will vote for Santa Claus as long as he gives them free stuff. People did vote for Santa Claus because he gave them (and promised future) free stuff. 35 days later people would still vote for Santa Claus. (No red suit, sleigh, or reindeer needed.)

  2. I was thinking the best metaphor for this election was the episode of ‘The Simpsons’ where Homer runs for garbage commissioner under the slogan “Can’t someone else do it?” and wins in a landslide after making outrageous promises and smearing his opponent as an alcoholic who “lures children to his gingerbread house.”

    Naturally, the town is bankrupt within days of him taking office.

  3. Polls are stupid
    People are stupid

    I like the poll that says 75% of Americans want tax cuts. If math serves me well, at least 28% of them voted for this idiot. What to tell them? To FO.

    Same for the 54% who do not like Obamacare. At least 7% voted for the clusterfuck.

    There should be a special place in hell for such people

  5. Maybe this says that people who voted for Romeny are more prone to hate and people who voted against Romney are less prone to hate?

    For example, I think there is a lot that a republican could get behind from Obama if you actually look at what he did instead of the hate-filled caricature that gets painted here so often.
    Obama has CUT more spending than the last two republican president’s combined. And it seems that Gov Outlays have rose at the SLOWEST pace since 1950

    (this only holds true when discounting the Bush Bailouts and of course the Affordable Health Care Act is not instituted yet, so perhaps it will change)

    He has chased terrorists across all borders, killing Bin Laden and countless other terrorist leaders, under Obama domestic Oil production has increased, under Obama gays can fight in the military openly so I think there are a lot of things that Right Leaning Moderates like myself can get behind.

    You don’t have to love him, think he is a good president, or agree with him at all. But as the poll shows, 49% of the country is just so darn hate filled toward Obama they can’t even give him a Christmas President.

    This should make the GOP ashamed.

  6. Mike instead of lecturing others, think about the hate that permanently reside in your lot, the union thughs beating up people and the gay mafia throwing rocks at Mormon churches. Oh yeah and the guy who shoot a guard in front of the pro traditional marriage center.
    Is this the civility we should learn from you?
    And you should be ashamed. Pointless to make you notice that you’re not winning hearts and minds here. Your posts are mere trolling
