Pawlenty backers rue early withdrawal from GOP race

Larry Jacobs compares Pawlenty to other GOP candidates, concluding that Pawlenty lacks "fatal flaw."

In an interview with ABC News in May, Larry Jacobs of the Center for the Study of Politics & Governance at the University of Minnesota predicted that Pawlenty would be a "formidable candidate." "You start to go through all the candidates, almost all of them have really fatal flaws," Jacobs said. "Pawlenty doesn't have a fatal flaw."
