Mitt Romney Admits A Lot Of His Constituents Don’t Like How He Treats Trump

Mitt Romney has been making a name for himself as an anti-Trump Republican in the Senate.

Not all of his constituents are happy about it.

He apparently got an earful the last time he held a town hall meeting.

The Hill reports:

Romney: About half of constituents in town halls said I’m being too tough on Trump

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) said constituents at his town halls in Utah are split on whether they feel the senator is too tough, or not tough enough, with President Trump.

Romney, who is likely the most critical Senate Republican of Trump, told USA Today that he asked constituents at a series of town halls whether he was being too tough on Trump.

He told the newspaper about half the room raised their hand when he asked, “How many of you in the room think I’m being too tough on the president?”

The other half raised the hand when he asked if they felt he wasn’t being tough enough, he said.

“People tend to associate with people of like mind, and they assume everyone thinks the way they do,” he said. “And so, our town hall meetings have been quite civil.”

It’s easy to understand why people are losing patience with Romney and other never-Trump Republicans.

Get it together, Senator Romney.
