Gingrich advisor: Romney's comments today suggest he's the next John Kerry

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Newt Gingrich, tells National Review Online that Mitt Romney’s comments to CNN earlier today, that he is “not concerned about the very poor,” are a “startling reminder that Romney may not be the next John McCain, but the next John Kerry.”

“That comment, like so many others by Romney, is not just odd but out of touch,” says Conway, a veteran GOP pollster. “He does not share a connective tissue with the average American.”
