Scarborough: 'No One' In GOP Establishment Thinks Romney Will Beat Obama

By Mark Finklestein | News Busters | Apr. 4, 2012

Unemployment stubbornly over 8%.  His landmark piece of legislation in dire peril of being dumped by the Supreme Court.  The "flexibility" moment with Putin's pawn. Does that sound like an invincible incumbent to you?

It does to Joe Scarborough, and according to him, to every other member of the Republican establishment.  On Morning Joe today, Scarborough said that while they won't admit it on TV, "no one" in the GOP establishment believes Mitt Romney will beat Barack Obama in the general election.

Watch Scarborough make his pessimistic pronouncement.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Nobody thinks Romney's going to win. Let's just be honest. Can we just say this for everybody at home? Let me just say this for everybody at home. The Republican establishment--I've yet to meet a single person in the Republican establishment that thinks Mitt Romney is going to win the general election this year. They won't say it on TV because they've got to go on TV and they don't want people writing them nasty emails.  I obviously don't care. But I have yet to meet anybody in the Republican establishment that worked for George W. Bush, that works in the Republican congress, that worked for Ronald Reagan that thinks Mitt Romney is going to win the general election.

Mark Halperin was somewhat more sanguine, saying Romney "might" win and that he didn't totally agree with Scarborough's take.
