Mitt Romney: ‘I’m not running’ in 2016

Can you imagine the landslide if the 2012 election were held today?
Check it out:

Mitt Romney says he is not running for president.

“I’ve had my turn. I gave it two good shots. Didn’t win and now it’s time for someone else to do it,” he told Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s “Situation Room” on Wednesday. “I’m not running for president.”

“It’s better than a kick in the teeth,” he said of campaigning. “At the same, I’m absolutely convinced that there are other people who would have a better chance of becoming the nominee and becoming the next president of the United States better than I would have.”

Blitzer noted that recent polls have found Americans favor Romney as the Republican candidate. Last week, a survey of New Hampshire voters placed him in the lead with 25 percent of the vote, leading Rand Paul with 18 percent and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with 17 percent.
