(CNSNews.com) – Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, said on Tuesday that the base of his party is easily excited by “outrageous” rhetoric.
“It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments,” Romney told reporters.
“We’ve seen throughout the campaign that if you’re willing to say really outrageous things that are accusative and attacking of President Obama, that you’re going to jump up in the polls,” Romney said.
