Historian Niall Ferguson, no fan of Barack Obama (see HERE), is a supporter of Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy but FEARS that the Republican nominee will lose the coming election for various reasons having little or nothing to do with the economy:
[W]hen asked to rank issues, voters mostly put the economy at the top of the list. And yet when asked to make a choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, their choices don’t seem to be economically based.
Many people subscribe to the view that Romney just isn’t likable. They can more readily imagine having a beer or shooting hoops
