So Now The Majority Believes President Romney Is A Shoo-In After Winning Iowa

What happened to "America will never elect a Mormon"? I've never seen Democrats so despondent over the Romney win. They actually think he's going to win in November now? Is he that appealing to American voters?

In Iowa, Mitt finished just where he did in 2008: about one quarter of the vote, with about the same number of GOP Caucus-goers (otherwise known as Caucasians). If Mitt is a shoo-in for the nomination, it's because none of his principal rivals are well organized in NH and SC.

Yes, the majority, even on here after Romney's win. They were all pulling for Newt or Santorum, and now they believe with Romney's win, he's got the money, the Mormon church, the Koch brothers, Karl Rove, etc, so there's no way he can lose now. Remember, everyone said that Romney is the only one that can go up against Obama, and do Republicans want to win, or don't they by choosing somebody else. One good thing came out of this, the Freepers over at their web site are in full meltdown.

I wonder if Mittens is going to sweep the rest of the Primaries now. Winning Iowa does get a lot of momentum going for you. Isn't it funny how we all see the Right wanting to go with the most extreme of the extreme and they end up siding with the guy who the ones who scream the loudest call a RINO. It seems that the Freepers are actually in the minority. Look how they eventually went for McCain, another more Moderate in the face of all the other nuts that were running in 08. How come someone like Santurum can't win, even though we hear he appeals to that Party overall? Does the GOP actually have its shit together in the face of the far Rightists of their organization? Everyone knew that Romney was the only one with a shot, and he ends up winning over Newt or Santorum who were pounded into the masses' heads as the winners for the Republican Party.

Oh, please. Tokyo Rose indeed.

The Pres is on track to raise over a BILLION dollars for his re-election, not counting spending from outside groups.

Plus, he's the incumbent with improving job approval numbers.

Even Republicans are calling Mittens the "25% percent man" since he can't seem to get above that number.

There's still a possibility a Bloomberg or some other third party candidate will emerge, splitting the anti-Obama vote.

Combine dispirited Republicans who are voting for Mitt because he is 'electable' (NOT because they like him and are enthusiastic about him) with the Mormon kryptonite for conservative Christians and you suppress GOP turnout, which isn't good for MR.

Considering that 75% of the people who went to the polls in Iowa voted for someone other than Romney, I don't know that I agree with you.

Romney has run a disciplined campaign but he's also been very lucky. The more conservative alternatives have turned out to be one hapless loser after another - Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum? Please!

Pawlenty has to be kicking himself for getting out, and Huckabee has to be kicking himself even harder for never getting in. Honestly, if Huckabee had run I think he would be cruising to the nomination right now.

by Anonymousreply 1801/04/2012

OP, your take is different than every Democrat strategist that I've read today. The take is that Romney may begrudgingly take the nomination but that he is so hated by his own party that Frothy Rick Santorum actually came from nowhere without any money spent and TIED him. And Newt is going after Romney with a vengeance. So there are a couple of possibilities. A badly bruised Romney emerges from the Republican primaries. Or Santorum ends up rallying the base. Either way it points to re-election for Obama. So you might want to rethink your information.

Romney spent $156 per vote, Santorum spent $21 per vote for the same total. Not very fiscally responsible, Mitt -- if you can't manage your own campaign war chest, how can America trust you to manage its budget?

by Anonymousreply 2101/04/2012

The Majority sees the economy is improving, they see Obama as strong on defense and fighting for the middle class. Why on earth would they want to interrupt the progress and start all over again with a new administration? It would be stupid to go back to greedy, right wing principles that got us into so much trouble in the first place by electing someone who is a 1%er and a bishop in a cult that believes the earth is a few thousand years old, that God lives on a planet and Jesus and Satan are brothers.

The only true winner last night was Obama.

by Anonymousreply 2401/04/2012

If Obama 1) Needs to raise a BILLION dollars in order to get re-elected then something is, indeed, terribly wrong. No sitting president should need a billion to convince the voters to re-elect him if he feels he's done well in his first term. and 2) You can raise a billion? Then use it to feed the poor and extend unemployment benefits and move on to other important issues.

Mitt is a terrific looking guy and very charismatic. He has a handsome family to boot that screams "traditional family values" and "Americana." I think a lot of people are vapid enough, and probably sentimental for a certain traditional quality of life, to translate these surface, aesthetic charateristics into hope and prosperity.

The whole "Romney is a formidable general election candidate" meme is completely untested and quite possibly total BS. He's lost way more elections than he's won in his life. He sunk MILLIONS of dollars into Iowa and finished slightly lower than he did four years ago. As another poster pointed out, the press has yet to really gear up the Romney scrutiny but it is coming - and it's not going to be pretty.

He's the GOP John Kerry. Mark my words.

by Anonymousreply 3601/04/2012

Obama is toast. He had his chance and squandered it and did the opposite of what he promised. Romney is an improvement over McCain. Guess what? Massachussets is still standing after his governorship. People used to say Americans will never elect a Catholic when Kennedy was elected. So, the whole Mormon thing is wishful thinking. Paranoia strikes deep. I voted for Obama and saw what happened. I am an independent and will vote for Romney this next go round.

Romney is not better than McCain, he is far far worse. Massachusetts did not prosper under Romney.

Teh first year that Romney took office he benefited from recovery in health care and finance, two industries particularly prominent in Massachusetts, but the bloom was off that rose very quickly and his popularity dived so quickly that he didn't bother trying for re-election because he knew he would lose.

Eventually, Bachmann, Paul and Perry are going to drop out of the race, and the people who were crazy enough to support them will have only one equally crazy candidate to turn to...Santorum.

At the end of the day, evangelicals will be as likely to vote for a Mormon as a Muslim, so I think there's a really good chance that Santorum will win the nomination. Which means one thing...4 more years of Obama.

by Anonymousreply 4701/04/2012

With Bachmann and Perry dropping out of the race and Newt on a mission to take down Romney, there is still a chance that Santorum could last longer.

The Dems want the primary race to go on as long as possible so that Romney has to move right to get the nomination. Then fuck up his chances in the General with Independents.

Yes, they wanted Newt or Perry who had more money resources to be closer or win in Iowa because most figure Santurum doesn't have the legs to remain in the race much longer. But Newt will fuck shit up for the republicans, so I'm hopefull.

Still think most will pick Obama over Romney.

I just peed my pants I was laughing so hard. What is this, '1984'? None of that is happening.

The whole reason Obama is in the mess he's in with the electorate is because of the economy, and they don't see him fighting for jack shit.

Unfortunately, they're dumb enough to vote for the other guy who sunk his state's economy, and hearing that he was in business has a nice ring to it. Don't get into the nitty gritty about how bad he was though. They'll hear he busted unions and they'll flock to the polls and vote for him in mass numbers. Americans just hate themselves.

by Anonymousreply 5501/04/2012

I don't think Perry is dropping out.

As unbelievable as it sounds, Perry still has a chance to win.

On a policy standpoint - he is the best "conservative" of the bunch. He's red meat.

His "communication" skills are what is lacking.

Perry suspended his campaign and returned to Texas. That means he is out. I see no way that he could say that he prayed on it and God told him to continue. He's just trying to figure out what leverage he could have for endorsing someone.

No, it's not dead yet, but I think the Tea Party might be an early death rattle. The solid red southwest is trending blue. Once those states start flipping the GOP will be left with the South and a smattering of other states. That's no way to win on a national scale.
