And doesn’t like what it finds.
THERE IS A reason Mitt Romney has not received a single newspaper endorsement in New Hampshire. It’s the same reason his poll numbers are dropping. He has not been able to convince the people of this state that he’s the conservative he says he is.
Like a lot of people in New Hampshire, we wanted to believe Romney. We gave him the benefit of the doubt. We listened very carefully to his expertly rehearsed sales pitch. But in the end he didn’t close the deal for us. Now, two weeks before the primary, the same is happening with voters.
And the paper also adds this truism: “In this primary, the more Mitt Romney speaks, the less believable he becomes.” Nothing truer has ever been said.
Will New Hampshire voters reject Mitt Romney? Time will tell.
Update 2: The San Diego Union-Tribune also has reservations about Mitt.
