I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Bad News For Tim Pawlenty

Right now, he wouldn’t even carry his home state if he were the Republican nominee in 2012:

Minnesota voters have mixed feelings about Governor Tim Pawlenty these days, and just 38% say they’d vote him if he wins the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. That’s down four points from November.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds that 50% say they would not vote for Pawlenty if he’s the Republican nominee that year. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

Not good. Even Walter Mondale managed to carry his home state.

By the way, here’s a nifty site that shows that there have only been three times in American history where a Presidential candidate has lost his home state, but won the election.
