May 15, 2012 Elections 2012
The headline says it all, “Alarm Grows Among Dems About Obama’s Chances“:
“It has taken months of bad news, but Democrats increasingly believe that President Obama might just lose his re-election bid. The latest wake-up call comes in the form of a New York Times/CBS poll showing Republican Mitt Romney in the lead not just among registered voters overall, but with women and independents …”
That’s good, but I’m still not seeing the love for Romney. I think his increasing numbers have more to do with disgust with Obama as opposed to support for Romney, especially with gun owners. Romney needs to close the deal. He could do that either by picking a solid gun guy as his running mate and/or supporting the reciprocity bill in Congress. Just a a short and sweet statement like “As President I would sign H.R 822 into law.” Anything more than that would come across as sucking up and not be believable considering his less than perfect record on the issue.
