7 minutes

But he must have been shocked by last night's reaction by the other passengers on the plane. Mitt was greeted by boos, and shouts of traitor. And his fellow Utah citizens weren't at all subtle about their displeasure in seeing the junior Senator from their home state.

It was clear from their reaction, that Mitt is in trouble politically.
