HANDILY IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND

MITT ROMNEY.

PHONY.

AS OKAY, YEAH, I'D BE OKAY

WITH HIM.

ANYBODY IN THE HISTORY OF PERK

THAT'S MORE FIRED UP ABOUT

ENTHUSIASTICALLY?

NO, GOSH, NO.

I PROMISE THAT.

NO.

GOSH.

NO.

>> Reporter: JOE WAS SO

PASSIONATE ABOUT ROMNEY, YOU'D

THINK ROMNEY WAS RON PAUL.

GET SO FIRED UP, I CAN'T EVEN

SLEEP THE NEXT NIGHT.

WHEN I GO TO BED AT NIGHT I

RALLY.

THE MITT MANIA WAS EXPLOSIVE.

THE ROOM WAS FILLED WITH THESE

FOUR GUYS.

ELECTION.

PASSIONATE ABOUT HIM?

SOUNDED LIKE TYPICAL ROMNEY

SUPPORTERS.

SO WHAT EXPLAINS JOE'S "OFF

THE CHARTS" ENTHUSIASM?

WAS HIS PASSION MISPLACED?

>> I DON'T AGREE WITH HIM ON

FOREIGN POLICY BUT HE'S A GOOD

MAN, I LIKE HIM.

I DON'T AGREE WITH RON.

I DON'T THINK HE'S AS

QUALIFIED AS MITT ROMNEY IN MY

OPINION BUT I LIKE HIM.

I LIKE ALL THE REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATES.

I THINK HE'S A GOOD MAN.

I JUST DON'T AGREE WITH HIS

POLICIES.

GOOD MAN.

DEALING WITH HERE?

WHAT ABOUT THIS STYROFOAM CUP?

IT HOLDS LIQUID.

UNLESS IT'S GOT A HOLE IN IT

A STRONG SUPPORTER OF MITT

ROMNEY.

>> Reporter: YOU'RE VERY NICE.

I TRY TO BE.

>> Reporter: NO ONE IS THAT

POSITIVE.

HAVE THEY BUGGED YOUR HOUSE?

>> NO.

GOSH.

NO.

NO.

I CERTAINLY WOULDN'T THINK SO.

NO.
