A breed apart: The Romney diehards

It is not, however, literally true that nobody loves Romney. His trademark traits of calculation and moderation may not attract Sarah Palin-esque legions of screaming fans, but after a determined search, POLITICO was able to locate a half-dozen Republicans who won’t settle for Romney: They’ll vote for him passionately…

Joe McCutchen, 71, of Ellijay, Ga., is Romney’s self-proclaimed “No. 1 fan.” He’s worn his “Romney” sticker every single day for the past six months, says he “goes 24/7” for Romney and even answers his home phone with, “Romney for president!”

“I think he’ll be elected; he’ll govern like Reagan and he’ll be the greatest president in the history of the country,” he said.

Elie Litvin, 19, may be Romney’s youngest die-hard. Litvin started volunteering for Romney during his 2002 gubernatorial campaign, when he was just 9 years old.
