    "Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney lost support from Republicans and independents in his home state during the weeks after he called for witnesses in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, a new poll shows.

    The Morning Consult survey found support for Romney, 72, going down after he called for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial, which began on Thursday.

    The poll shows the senator’s approval rating falling among Utah Republicans from September through December 2019, and independents also shifted to disapproving of Romney over the quarter.

    In the prior quarter, 65% of Utah Republicans supported Romney, and while a majority still do presently, that number sank to 57%."

    Send his ass packing, but they will elect him again that's what Republican lite do.

    I think he's not up for reelection until 2024.

    He probably assumes that the voters will forget by then.

    Or at least come out of the leftist closet. I’d have more respect for him if he’d just declare himself a socialist like bernie et. al.

    everyone knew he is a rino , and they elected him again. Let's hope we can get him out of office before he screws us again.

    Impeach him, it would be good TV for UTAH. A great comedy show. Time for Americans to take the country back, or lose it!

    I voted for him against Obama. Given the same choice, I'd vote for him again.

    Romney's about one flake shy of being a total Snowflake.

    Not as bad maybe as AZ's Jeff 'Snow' Flake, but it doesn't matter. Romney's still a RINO Never-Trumper.

    Hope the right-thinking folks in Utah boot his keister out of the Senate in a primary.

    Romney is a snake just like McCain. They both handed the election over to Obama like crooked prizefighters who took a dive after being bought off by the Mob.

    And the final kick in the balls, to BOTH of those snakes,
