Can Romney Win
Romney Gains Strength
Mitt Romney appears to be gaining strength, and the Obama team is extremely nervous. Americans tend more and more to trust conservatives with economic prowess, especially during recessions like this one. Obama, on the other hand, looks old, worn-down, and insiders in the administration have said that most of the team is simply exhausted. The only thing, though, that works strong in Obama's favor is the fact that many Americans remain tremendously concerned about income inequality. Obama talks a good game as far as being concerned about this, but I'm not so sure.
Many people thought that the Occupy Movement was mainly a liberal thing, but most of the movement seemed to be equally upset with the president and with the Democratic Party. After making wide-sweeping exhortations about reform and change, Obama has continued to stick with the old ways, and in many aspects, has made them worse.
I believe it's time to rethink what is meant by "conservative" and "democrat." Romney may be the better choice for liberals, too.
