Schieffer: Not much excitement with GOP voters


There's some real questions now to ask about Mitt Romney.

He's won three "gimmee" primary contests: his home state of Massachusetts, Vermont right next door, and Virginia, where the only other person on the ballot was Ron Paul

Ron Paul got more than forty percent of the vote in Virginia, and that's just people saying, "We don't like Mitt Romney."

In Georgia and Tennessee, half the voters said Tuesday night they did not think Mitt Romney was conservative enough.

In Ohio, 4 out of 10 people who voted for Romney so far said they had questions about him. A similar percentage of Santorum voters said the same thing.

This is why you're seeing not much excitement being generated.

If Mitt Romney does end up winning the nomination at the end of the day, he's still going to have to convince people in his own party that he's the right man for the job.
