Is Romney just a ‘strange dude’ from Boston?

Earlier today, Dylan went on Morning Joe. This question came up: What does it take to understand Mitt Romney?

“Here’s my two cents on Mitt Romney. Everybody thinks ‘Oh well [he’s] rich, he’s out of touch, he doesn’t know how to connect to people. I think that that is wrong…I think Mitt Romney’s problem is more that he’s just kind of a weirdo from Boston. It’s less that he’s rich or poor; it’s more that he’s just kind of a strange guy that doesn’t relate to people that well. If he was poor he wouldn’t relate to people that well, and if we rich he wouldn’t relate to people that well. He’s just kind of a strange dude, and so he kind of screws things up. But I think we’re overthinking it beyond that.”
