#RickPerry familiarity breeds contempt

The Washington Post didn't need a poll to tell us what many in Texas know: Familiarity with Rick Perry breeds contempt.There are other interesting outtakes, though, none of which are surprising.

"Texas" Perry and "Mormon" Romney both have unfavorable/favorable ratios of worse than 3-1 among black voters, while "Pizza Man" Cain is only at 2:1.

That said, Perry's overall ratings ratio has started skewing strongly negative.

The recent Las Vegas debate probably didn't help a lot. In an effort to look animated and involved, Perry instead looked more like a talk machine. Romney's semi-condescending hand on shoulder surely didn't help. Perhaps it didn't help Romney, either.
