As the United States is shifting into the poll mode for staging a fierce clash of the titans in the 2016 presidential elections, Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, has said that they want Mitt Romney to contest the polls again.
“Another Mitt Romney run would be the definition of insanity,” Paul said while extending support to him.
The advisers of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also want Romney to contest the elections.
“I would like to run against Mitt Romney in every election forever,” one of the advisor’s of Clinton said.
A new survey by CBS News has showed extreme support for the candidature of Romney for presidential race.
According to the poll, 59 percent of Republicans wants the former Massachusetts governor to launch a bid for the race to the White House.
However, the 26 percent of the Republican leaders want to see him sit out of the elections.
The researchers at CBS News prepared the poll result after surveying 1,001 Americans across the country. The survey result has a margin of error of +/- 6 percent.
On the other hand, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is also not far behind Romney as far as popularity among the Republicans is concerned. The survey findings showed 50 percent of the Republicans wanted to see Bush in the 2016 race.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is being seen as another potential contender for the top-most post, had a dismal show in the survey. Christie won support from only 29 percent of Republicans who said they want to see him run the election. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin won 30 percent support from the Republicans.
