"Compared to the prospect of four more years of failed leadership from President Obama, as a strong conservative I am very excited about a Romney White House," one Republican said.
"Barack Obama has failed to meet his own criteria for re-election and Mitt Romney is ready to lead on day one," said another member who claimed to be "very excited."
Members of the "somewhat excited" camp went even farther with this theme.
"It's all about President Obama," "The motivation is to remove Obama," and "frankly, Republicans are excited about beating Obama, not electing Romney or any of the other candidates," were all responses from this category.
Democrats on the other hand were overwhelmingly "apathetic" about the prospect of a Romney nomination.
Sixty-eight percent of them responded as such, saying he had "no principles, no core" and that he would be the "flip-flopper-in-Chief."
"He looks and acts like he was put together by a committee!" said one Democrat.
And the Democrats who were excited about his nomination were happy to have what they considered a weak opponent.
"He is a wooden out of touch rich guy that will not appeal to regular Americans," said one "very excited" Democrat. "Obama has lucked out!"
