With Santorum Out, What’s in Store for Romney?

by Charles Wang on Friday, April 20th, 2012

Despite his promise to remain in the Republican race until the Pennsylvania primary, Rick Santorum suspended his campaign on Tuesday, April 10. His dropping out has essentially cleared the path for the former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, to seize the Republican nomination. However, whether or not Romney’s reputation and likability as a presidential candidate will improve by the time he comes head-to-head with  President Obama is still uncertain.
 
Mitt Romney has been heavily criticized for his inconsistent views on certain topics. In the last presidential race, Romney purchased a National Rifles Association (NRA) membership and said, “I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life.” Two days later, when evidence came out contradicting his statement, Romney clarified on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthew, “I’m not a big game hunter. I’ve made it very clear. I’ve always been, if you will, a rodent and a rabbit hunter. Small, small, varmints if you will.” This campaign, Romney has once again backtracked , saying, “I’m not going to describe all of my great exploits, but I went moose hunting, actually, not moose hunting. I’m sorry – elk hunting with friends in Montana. Been pheasant hunting.”
Another issue facing Romney is his popularity among Americans in terms of likability and inspiration. In a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, Obama had a massive advantage over Romney when it came to each candidate’s personal attributes.
 
When participants were asked which of the men “seems like the more friendly and likable person,” Obama received 64% of the votes, a whopping 2.5 times more than Mitt Romney’s 26%. In a following question, participants were asked whether they found Obama more inspiring than Romney. Obama received another wide-margin victory, leading Romney 55% to 29%.
 
Many view the likely GOP nominee as being too much of a phony, and think that he campaigns by showing the public what they want to see. In a discussion about Romney’s future on the MSNBC program Jansing & Co., one of the guests had this to say about Romney:
“He can do some work to be more authentic. He’s the guy with the elevator for his car and who puts his dog on his roof. That’s who he is. He’s not the beer drinking, grits eating guy who wears jeans and is comfortable with a stalk of wheat in his mouth. He needs to stop pretending like he’s something that he’s not.”
 
Romney is projected to amass the 1,144 delegates required to win the Republican nomination for President after Arkansas and Kentucky hold their primaries on the 22nd; if not, he will certainly achieve that by the 29th when Texas holds its primaries. But we have yet to see how Romney will handle his biggest hurdle: Barack Obama.
