With primaries being held today in Wisconsin, Washington D.C. and Maryland it appears as if the Republican Party seems lost. There still are four candidates campaigning across the nation hoping to make it to the convention with one Republican Candidate securing the necessary delegates to win outright.
Voters can not get behind Romney, the Caucasian Obama. Many voters understand Mitt changes his platform as often as he changes venues. “Etch a Sketch” loves the man for revitalizing the erasable screen toy sales which seems to resemble his stances on everything. Today I stand by it and tomorrow I will erase whatever it is I stated from the slate.
Santorum wants Americans to believe he is the conservative candidate as he campaigns across the nation. Citizens are buying into his promises of saving the nation. Yet as a Senator he voted on raises for Congress, voted to raise the debt ceiling on at least 6 different occasions and voted for pork barrel projects which he states are not voted on with the best interest of the nation at heart.
Gingrich has a website full of solutions to the problems we face in America. The problem here is every once in a while the old Newt appears and voters don’t like that Newt. They like the man who talks with them in a caring and non assuming way as if he were your father, grandfather or a close uncle.
Paul continues to state the obvious as Americans continue to rally around him. His message of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as projected in our Constitution drive his campaign. He continues to talk to thousands of people at rallies across the nation, yet media coverage doesn’t seem to broadcast the real action seen.
The Republican voter appears to want another candidate to vote for. They are not happy with this field of candidates made obvious by the lack of any one of them pulling away with the race toward the White House. The Republican establishment would prefer Mitt Romney knowing he will be their puppet if elected. Many voters interviewed in Las Vegas believe he will not be the leader he claims he will be. These voters believe he will win the nomination but they are praying he doesn’t because they don’t agree with his platform or his views. They say he is out of touch with “real America.”
Will voters across the nation have a candidate to vote for they believe in come November? Or, will they hightail it out of this country and say they have had enough of the corruption running rampant in the Halls of Congress. Come November will the Republican Party endorse a candidate the people believe in or will they endorse a candidate who can raise money for the party. Time will tell.
