Poll Context: As Mitt Romney Files FEC Paperwork To Run In 2016 Election, many are asking if he is trying to sabotage Trump as he and the GOP elite would prefer see a Clinton presidency than Donald Trump. Mitt Romney has filed paperwork with FEC to run in the current election and may be trying to block out Trump so he does not get the Republican nomination. This does not mean he has to run for President but it allows him to leave his options open. Romney has filed the paper work but must surely know that after 2 abject failures, he cannot win. So could his filing be an attempt to put Hillary in the White House in preference to Donald Trump?
