    Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in the next presidential election?

    Given that Romney is the front-runner, perhaps it's worth pondering.

    Well I don't think so. Unless he can muster up the strength of the Republican party, and unite it, then he can possibly have a chance. Unfortunately for him, Obama's approval ratings skyrocketed during the whole Osama Bin Laden incident, and he has been viewed in a less harsh light than he was before. I will admit it has to be a potential to be a rather close race, but I have a feeling Obama will keep his job as President of the United States.

    I highly doubt it. No one really knows the other candidates and many times presidents will get re-elected because they can't do nearly as much as they should be able to in four years.

    Nice question!  I am still so very undecided who I would like to see as the next President.

    Not that I'm sure he'll be the nominee, but if he is I think he has a decent chance actually. Republicans are ready to elect someone else and will unite behind any nominee to make that happen. Romney has budget experience and knows how to hire and fire when needed, which is one of Obama's biggest weaknesses.

    No, Romney is a eurobanker whore who supports the NON federal and NO reserve eurotrash banking cartel.  It's either Ron Paul, or a democratic victory.

    I think Mitt Romney has a chance to beat Obama. If he is the Republican nominee you would assume that he would carry the traditional Republican states. His experience as the Massachusetts governor could also help him win some more traditionally Democratic states in the northeast. He has good connections in Massachusetts and Connecticut where I think his father was a senator years ago. I think he has the best chance of any of the possible nominees I have heard of so far.

    I don't feel that Romney has as much of a chance to win as would Mike Huckabee.  I think Huckabee understands the issues the country faces, had very good common sense and the ability to apply logic to achieve the outcome.  Huckabee is truly a person who wants to do the right thing for America above and beyond the political fray.  Whether or not Romney can win will hinge greatly on how disliked Obama is at election time.  A significant portion of the American voters are currently not very high on the guy and the direction he is taking America in is a very dangerous one to say the least.  At the same time, if the rumors are true and he does show up with a billion dollar campaign chest...he may well "buy" the relection for himself...if George Soros has anything to say about it, that will be the case. Obama really does not have anything of a positive nature on which to run...most of what he has touched has come out more negative than positive. As the Clinton campaign said back in his first election to office..."It's the economy, stupid".  In this case, anyone who plans to beat Obama will have to keep the central focus on "it's the spending, stupid", for that aspect of his administration has surely moved America to the brink of bankruptcy....hands down.

    It doesn't really matter, they're both puppets.

    I voted for Obama and believed the hype back in the first election. My mistake. I'm an independent now thanks to all the nonsense from both sides. There are some decent candidates on the Republican side if they run, but I don't think Romney is one of them. Will make for an interesting 2012.

    Religion is too big of an issue for Romney to win. America isn't ready.

    Probably not. Either way, you can keep them both.

    Who sits in the proverbial "seat" does not matter.  We should be concerned about the people pulling the strings behind the curtain.  Sadly most Americans still believe our system runs the way it use to.  Check out my hub "Don't Blame Obama"  It explains everything.  Cheers mate smile

    After the take down of Osama Bin laden under Barack's current presidency theres no way Romney has a chance.

    No, most national leader tend to get reelected continuetly, unless he is doing a very bed job and face it, even George Bush can get reelected for two terms in a role and he suck.  Plus considering Obama is the first black President, I image he would have a lot of African American supporters, that support him because of that.

    No way. I'm not a big political maven, but beating an elected president in a second term election is really a long shot. I don't think it will happen!

    No, Mitt Romney will not beat Barack Obama.  WE Americans so quickly forget where our charming country was before he took office.  WE only concern ourselves with "What have you done for ME lately?"  When the debates come on and they are face to face with America (who I may add is finally awake) will see once again that Barack Obama is the one to choose and finish what he started.  So many people just concern themselves with the money he has spent but, do your really know what he's spending it on and why?  Do you do your research to see what he's spent compared to his past peers?  Or do you just follow the media and make your assumptions from that source?  I do my homework and I see where my tax dollars are going and so do many other American's who finally woke up and started to take note (that use to not vote but, now do) because the "worldly issues" that we normally see on TV that "happen to other people" are now happening to us and we need to know what's going on and who is going to fix it.  Comparing the two, my vote goes to Barack Obama - not because he's black, because he is capable of getting all of us in a better place if we stop judging and blaming and start working together as our forefathers had intended us to do so our America the Beautiful can remain the eagle in the sky.
