Other things with stronger bases of support than Mitt Romney

A recent CNN poll found that Rick Santorum had a larger base of people who “strongly” supported him than Mitt Romney did — 55 to 38 percent.

But this comes as no surprise. Here, for comparison purposes, is a chart of other things Americans strongly support. It may not quite be drawn to scale, and I had some difficulty finding any numbers on which to base it, but that has never stopped anyone from making a chart before. I think it’s accurate.
