Friday feedback: Twitterverse offers one-word reactions to GOP candidates

We asked Twitter followers to sum up Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul in a single word, just as we asked a nationally representative sample of Americans to do in a Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll released Friday. NOTE OF CAUTION: These responses are unedited, not from the Post-Pew survey and, unlike the survey, are not statistically representative of the attitudes of all Americans, or even all twitter users. For a good depiction of that, see the bubble infographic of the poll results, Romney and Gingrich from 2011 to 2012 and the full poll results.

Have a one-word description for one of the candidates or for their general election opponent, President Obama? Post a tweet using the hashtags #RomneyIn1word #SantorumIn1word #GingrichIn1word #RonPaulIn1word and #ObamaIn1word.
