Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, said another Mitt Romney run would be the “definition of insanity.”
Hillary Clinton’s advisers want Romney, saying “I would like to run against Mitt Romney in every election forever.”
But what about everyday Republicans?
They’re saying run baby, run, according to a new CBS News poll.
The poll has 59 percent of Republicans in favor of the former Massachusetts governor launching a bid, while 26 percent would rather see him sit out. The poll was conducted among 1,001 Americans nationwide and has a margin of error of +/- 6 percent.
Of the Republicans polled, 50 percent want to see former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in the race.
Another potential contender, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, had a dismal showing. Only 29 percent say they want to see him run – and he was edged out by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (30 percent say they’d like to see her in the race).
