Serious question? Has there been any Presidential ticket in the history of the country so soundly rejected by those who knew them best?
Think about this.
Massachusetts-Romney currently calls this his home state. He votes in Massachusetts. He is a former Governor of the commonwealth. His Governorship of Massachusetts is the biggest political achievement of his career.
New Hampshire- The Boston media market heavily influences New Hampshire. Most of its residents live within an hours drive of Boston. Romney owns a vacation home here. Romney started and ended his Presidential run campaigning in this state.
Michigan-This state is the family home of the Romney’s. Mitt Romney grew up in this state and calls it his childhood home. His father was the Governor of this state and tried to run for President using the Wolverine state as his base. His family has had very close historic ties to the auto industry.
California-Mitt Romney and his family are currently building a mansion here. They spend a lot of time in the golden state. The mansion the Romney’s will be moving into is a magnificent multi-million dollar home that at one time even included a car elevator.
Wisconsin- This is the state of Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential selection Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan grew up here. He is an avid Wisconsin Deer hunter and big Green Bay Packers fan. He has represented the state in congress since 1998.
Paul Ryan grew up in the small town of Janesville, Wisconsin. Surely at least here they were proud of their hometown boy.

1. Some Mormons don't like him either
From Political Wire:
Pew Research finds that Mitt Romney won 78% of the Mormon vote in the 2012 presidential election.

4. I don't think so either. I honestly can't recall any presidential ticket whipped this badly
in what should have been their base areas. Its really amazing.
