Do you think if Mitt Romney ran in 2016, does he actually have any more of a chance than previously?Posted by: discomfiting
In 2012, Obama won by 5 million popular votes leaving romney with about 61 million votes (47.2%). There has been speculation surrounding Romney for 2016 after saying he wouldn't run but then returning to the spotlight when the 2016 hype came around. If he runs, is he doomed from the start or does he have a chance?
He has a chance
He might be able to win the republican nomination, but I doubt it. There are simply too many other people that are in the spotlight right now as potential candidates. By the time the 2016 election comes around, most of the republican donors will have flocked to Geb Bush or to Chris Christie, leaving only a small portion for others. If he was to win the nomination though, I still don't think he'd be able to win. He'd likely be up against Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, both of which have more credibility amongst the general public than he does anymore. This is mostly just speculation though. Anything can change and I could be entirely wrong.
I doubt the Republican Party will allow him to run for a third time.
Romney had his chance & he blew it. Putting him on the national ticket, in 2016, isn't going to win the election. I'll take it a step farther ... The GOP has lost 2 general elections because of 2 huge reasons: a) Americans hold the Bush administration primarily to blame for the Great Recession; b) Tea Party Veeps. To win the Oval Office, the GOP has got to abandon the Tea Party. The TP is not popular enough, nationally, to tack one of their darlings to the Big Ticket! Then, they have to exercise some patience -- wait until the harsh memories of the Great Recession subside. As long as the latter is strongly present in a voter's mind, they will put their support elsewhere!
hes a horrible candidate for president. hes just another flip flopping politician. we need rand paul
People are getting sick of Obama. I personally think that if Nother democrat is elected, a civil war will ensue.
Obama can't do a next term anyway, so hopefully the democrats don't pick some social guy.
He has a chance. He probably would have won if someone didn't start the rumor that he was going to fire Big Bird.
