In 2011, Rick Perry entered the GOP race for the White House wih the highest of expectations. Many thought it would be a two person race between Perry and Mitt Romney.
But every time Perry and Romney went mano a mano, Perry came out on the wrong end. As we all know, Perry’s 2012 bid was the political equivalent of the Hindenburg. Oh, the humanity.
Four years later, Rick Perry enters the GOP race for the White House with the lowest of expectations. Perry is lucky if he’s polling a around 2%. Yet this could work in his favor. People outside of Texas have such low expectations of Perry that he has nowhere to go but up. If Perry can exceed expectations especially in the GOP debates then he could become a top tier candidate.
Now I don’t think Perry will win the nomination much less the White House. But I think he’ll have a far better showing this time around.
