recently released the results of a poll conducted among U.S. likely voters and found that nearly half of them think that Mitt Romney is qualified to be President:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters think that Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and unsuccessful GOP presidential candidate in 2008, is qualified to be president. Twenty-five percent (25%) say he is not qualified, and another 25% are not sure.
The news gets even better for Mitt Romney when Republicans were asked who they thought among the current and potential 2012 candidates would be most qualified to be president:
Among Republican voters, Romney leads as well, with 66% who feel he’s qualified to be president. Grouped together next in terms of whether GOP voters think they’re qualified are Gingrich (43%), Palin (42%) and Pawlenty (41%).
Many Americans are tired of having a President who has been leading from behind on the economy. Not only that, they're tired of having a president who has never been serious about reducing the deficit. President Obama has made multiple promises that the economy would be the main focus of his presidency and he has yet to make it a priority of his presidency.
We are now reaping the fruits of Obama's liberal economic policies and Americans are the ones who are feeling the brunt of it. With Moody threatening to reduce America's credit rating, unemployment at 9.1%, a national debt of $14 trillion, falling home prices, a steep slowdown in the manufacturing sector, and a downturn in the stock market resulting from a wave of weak economic news, America cannot afford to allow Obama to have a second term in office.
They reason why people are starting to warm up to Mitt Romney and think he is the most qualified Republican candidate is because they want a President who says he will make jobs and economy his priority and mean it. Not only that, they want a President who has actually done it. On the very day that Mitt Romney walked into the Massachusetts governor's office in 2003, he was a left with a massive deficit of approximately $3 billion. When he left office in 2007, he left the state had a $ 2 billion surplus.
Mitt Romney is making jobs and the economy the number one issue that he cares deeply about in his 2012 campaign. It will remain his number one priority when he becomes the next President of the United States,
