Google Apparently Doesn't Like Romney's Chances The phrase 'Romney can win' doesn't go over so well By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Oct 28, 2011 2:48 PM CDT 5 comments Comments A Google search doesn't seem to like Mitt Romney's odds of success. (Google) (Newser) – Mitt Romney can't catch a break. First George Will dumps on him, and now it looks like Google's search engine isn't a big fan. The folks at Slate's Browbeat blog have noticed that when users type the phrase "Romney can win" into the search bar, they get this suggestion: "Did you mean: Romney can't win" Romney is the only candidate who gets the treatment, though this appears to be an innocent quirk of the algorithms and not some sinister Google bomb. Of course, it's nothing compared to Rick Santorum's Google troubles.
